Former Schalke midfielder Max Meyer has distanced himself from remarks made by his father Achim.
Meyer’s dad appears to have no patience for his son’s old party. While driving a Lamborghini, he shared a social media video criticizing the Bundesliga side.
He is cruising around Gelsenkirchen in a supercar he claims the party paid for.
Along with this visual, 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.”
However, Meyer junior doesn’t hold the views of his father.
He posted a photo of him playing for Schalke on Instagram with a note stating he’s upset with his father and always loving his boyhood team.
The 24-year-old wrote as the caption for the post: “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.”
