Former Germany defender Metzelder investigated for distributing child porn

Former Germany international defender Christoph Metzelder is being investigated by authorities in the country on suspicion of distributing child pornography.

Metzelder, who has forty-seven international caps for die Mannschaft, is being questioned by investigators in Dusseldorf over allegations that he sent images of illegal content to a recipient in Hamburg via WhatsApp.

Two police searches were carried out in Dusseldorf on Tuesday of this week.

Metzelder has been said to have co-operated with police and investigators over the allegations.

The images and electronic devices collected by police will be searched as the investigation continues.

Metzelder was a member of the squads for the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, and became a household name at Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund won the 2001-2002 Bundesliga title during Metzelder's seven-year spell with them, before winning La Liga with Real Madrid in 2007-2008.
