Schweinsteiger apologises for 'sons of b**ches' chant about Dortmund

BVB have also responded to the Bayern Munich midfielder by offering to give him singing lessons.

GERMANY’S WORLD CUP-winning midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has apologised after footage emerged of the Bayern Munich star making derogatory comments about Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Schweinsteiger was filmed in a Munich bar saying: “BVB, sons of bitches,” a line from a well-known Bayern supporters song, several times at a private party.

The video which runs for around one minute appeared online at the weekend and was the subject of much talk in Germany.

The footage, apparently filmed two days after Germany’s 1-0 extra-time victory over Argentina in the World Cup final, prompted Schweinsteiger to issue an apology on his Facebook page.

“I would like to ask forgiveness from the fans, officials and players of Borussia Dortmund. I don’t want to make things out to be better than they are. It’s a well known supporters song, but I didn’t intend to offend anyone,” said Schweinsteiger.

Dortmund then responded with a brilliant reply:

…which translates as:

Dear Bastian Schweinsteiger,

It’s not a problem that after winning the World Cup (for which we’d like to congratulate you, by the way!) to have a beer (or two) and to let emotions run free and to say some inappropriate things.

We see you as a great and fair athlete so of course we’ll accept your video apology.

We wish you a great vacation in Croatia.

Borussia Dortmund.

P.S.: if you’re ever thinking of taking singing lessons, let us know. We’d love to help you!
