multiculturalism. a photo of. their meeting in may the blue touch paper on a debate that has refused to die down in germany with being accused of helping one campaign for an upcoming election is all says the pair talked only but football germany teammate seen here on the left was also at the meeting and explained his decision soon after. preferred to remain silent which only brought to more criticism. i don't think any footballer should have their photo taken with any authoritarian rulers whether with vladimir putin. or with a good one and there are enough democratic politicians to be photographed well. you can be missing. after germany's exit at the world cup group stage the debate bubbled up again germany team manager an f.a. chief lyndall added fuel to the fire with clint hill urging israel to explain his
1:03 am
meeting with their one to ninety two times cut international did just that and his words have piled more pressure on the german f.a. . joining me in studio to help explain what exactly happened is public. and william know the full quote from social media thank you for joining us so at this stage probably let's begin with obviously doesn't come as much of a surprise that has retired but the strongly worded statement is what seems to be creating shock no you're absolutely right and i mean it really i mean he does not mince his words whatsoever and he his his anger is directed at this effort several elements will say will start with the fact that he he is very clear in his criticism towards to german media in particular of course for that meeting that he had and their reaction. following that meeting with the president of the line of turkey and he says certain german newspapers are using my background and my photo
1:04 am
with president out of the one as right wing propaganda he also says that the media didn't criticize his performances they didn't criticize the performances of his teammates in russia of course because let's not forget that germany had a disastrous run there at the world cup he says they just criticize his turkish history and respect for his upbringing so i mean he is very strong and what he's saying towards the german media he goes on and he also is very critical of the german football association the d.f.t. and in particular of their presidents. and he really does not mince his words in what he says about so why don't you tell us what exactly he did say and what issues he brought up and that once again related to this meeting and this photograph that he had which caused so much controversy a couple of months ago with president turkey out of the one he said that whilst i attempted to explain to grindle his heritage his ancestry and therefore reasoning behind the photo he was far more interested in speaking about his own political
1:05 am
views he went on to say that in the eyes of grendel and his supporters he's german only when he wins but he's an immigrant when he loses that these are incredibly strong statements what he's saying because he's bringing in many other elements he's talking about multiculturalism he's talking about the fact he also says that whilst critical was a member of the german parliament as a member of the c.d.u. he brings of the fact that he was very much against jewel citizenship or to nationality will say which let's not forget those represent germany but he is very proud also of his turkish heritage and he also says that in his statement so he has really caused a massive shock in what he said because he is he also and before i forget mentions the fact that he asked the question is it because he is muslim so you know there's going to be. a lot of reaction to this in the coming days and hours that's for sure ok and reaction is exactly what i want to hear from you so was all of this the

release to this statement in english already a statement on itself and it was also wanted to what's the reaction there in english on twitter the statement itself as public point out is so strongly worded that a lot of the reaction has just been requoting him there's no real need for additional reaction there has been so far right trolling aside a lot of support with a lot of sadness for example who is the founder of a nonprofit german turkish diplomats here in germany and he tweeted he said those resignation from the german national team is the worst worst case scenario for open and tolerant germany it took so long to give young children of migration backgrounds hope even as their idol fails how should kids believe in themselves and our country and then the speaking of country not a lot of official reaction from government officials yet although germany's justice minister catarina barly had this to say on twitter it's a warning sign when a big time german player like. no longer feels wanted in his country and represented by the d.f.t.

because of racism it's also interesting what officials aren't saying for example the fifa world cup is one of the few soccer organizations actually come out and say anything yet but take a look at what their statement says on twitter they wrote. has called time on his international career with the german national team congratulations on being part of world cup history while wearing the shirt as a sophie is completely sidestepping doesn't mention any of the ignoring the whole reason that has resigned which is the racism and discrimination that he feels at the highest levels of germany's sports media and society and there's two issues here really that we need to separate you know is the current state of turkish politics and bigotry against foreigners in germany like we have here from this journalist in sweden who's pointing out to other journalists it is possible to condemn both those decision to post for a photo with a tyrannical heir to one and the racism he. subjected to because of it do not conflate the two he calls it a p.r. effort whatever those doing and at some point important point to bear in mind of
