Michael Schumacher’s ex-manager fumes at family’s alleged ‘lies’ about his condition

Willi Weber, the former manager of Michael Schumacher, has accused the German icon’s family of telling him “lies” regarding the seven-time F1 champion’s condition

Schumacher has not been seen in public since suffering a near-fatal brain injury when skiing in the French resort of Meribel in December 2013

His condition has been shrouded in secrecy for the past nine years, thanks mainly to wife Corinna, who has vowed to protect his privacy as he recovers at home in Switzerland.

ecently former Ferrari boss and Schumacher’s close friend Jean Todt said he’s hopeful the 53-year-old will recover one day

but on the whole the world has been kept in the dark over Schumacher’s health

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport this week, Weber claimed he has been prevented from visiting Schumacher since his harrowing skiing accident 

“I tried hundreds of times to contact Corinna and she didn’t answer,” the 80-year-old said 

They kept me out, telling me it’s too early, well now it’s too late. It’s been nine years. Maybe they should just say it the way it is.

“I could understand the situation initially as I always did everything I could for Michael to protect his private life. But since then we have only heard lies from them.”
