Man charged with blackmailing a player in the Real Madrid

An Israeli man has been charged with blackmailing various young footballers, including one at Real Madrid, at a court hearing in Jerusalem on Sunday.

Yeshayahu Kiershenbaum, who is 34 years old, assumed the identity of a girl on social media in order to catch the attention and trust of young footballers.

Kiershenbaum is suspected of having acquired photos of a teenager in Real Madrid’s academy, including some of him without any clothes on.

After obtaining these photos, he threatened to post them publicly if he didn’t receive more.

Furthermore, Kiershenbaum created a Facebook account in the name of this Real Madrid player and got in contact with other teenage footballers.

Using this fake identity, he persuaded players to send him more photos in exchange for getting them a move to Real Madrid down to his supposedly good contacts at the club.

The charges made against him include blackmail with threats, obscene acts against an under-16-year-old, identity theft and damage to privacy.
