Former Schalke midfielder Max Meyer has distanced himself from remarks made by his father Achim.
His father, while driving a Lamborghini, shared a social media video criticizing the Bundesliga side.
The 24-year-old wrote: “I’ve just been made aware of my father’s video. I’m profoundly saddened by this picture. It doesn’t fit in this moment, it doesn’t fit in this country, and it doesn’t fit in every moment. I have to thank Schalke very, very much and I’m distancing myself from the video’s nature and material.”
He also posted a photo of him playing for Schalke on Instagram with a note stating he’s upset with his father and always loving of his boyhood team.
Meyer’s dad appears to have no patience for his son’s old party, sharing a photo of him cruising around Gelsenkirchen on social media in a supercar he claims the party paid for.
He said: “This will not get any easier, guy. Gelsenkirchen, via the forbidden city. Off to the tax consultant. It’s nice with the paid Lambo from the bankruptcy club. Wonderful.”
Clearly, Meyer junior doesn’t hold the views of his father.
