“Our investigation targets Felix Sturm, his manager, and one other male person,” prosecutor Benedkit Kortz said, confirming a report in Bild.
Sturm and his manager Roland Bebak are believed to have hired the third man to kill promoter Ahmet Öner, he added.

“This is a far-fetched story, it's false and contrived,” Bebak said through a spokesman.
“Such an accusation isn't a joke, but deadly serious,” he added.
