over the upcoming election. i'm sorry harmon welcome to the show it's good to have you with us german football star as it has quit the national team of what he called the scream a nation after germany's world cup exit is there who has turkish roots said he faced racism and disrespect from the german media after his meeting with circus president. back in may he was also criticized by the german football association after the tournament and rush. off to a long silence measures israel has finally made his feelings known in an epic three part statement on twitter is ill said his meeting with turkey's president added one was about respecting the highest office of his family's country. in his third post
released hours later is ill heavily criticized german football association president clinton for his negative comments on islam and multiculturalism and announced he was quitting the german side. a photo of israel and added one at that meeting and may spock to debate that has refused to die in germany with israel being accused of helping out a once campaign for an upcoming election israel says the pats only about football germany teammate going to on the scene here on the left was also at the meeting and explained his decision soon after prefer to remain silent which only brought him more criticism from the kind i don't think any footballer should have their photo taken with any authority and really whether with vladimir putin as the tomatillos did with edwin like you can do on an issue there are enough democratic politicians to be photographed webb could get got to put it you can beat him if he's a pretty shrewd us and coming off to germany's exit in the world cup group stage
the debate bubbled up again germany team manager all of a bill huff and f.a. chief of the added fuel to the fire with kendall urging him to explain his meeting with out of the ninety two times capped international has done so now and his words have piled more pressure on the german f.a. who have yet to respond. a huge story this morning in germany lima her talking from our sports desk to walk me through it would be good to have you here we heard they're taking aim at german f.a. president right are going though what is this issue with him yeah so is it not shy away he did not hold back he went and he basically accused i had gringo that the of the president of using him as a scapegoat for his own incompetence and he even went a step further and he basically pointed out something that a lot of germans for the microwave background often and that is that if you're successful if i'm when i win i'm german but the minute i lose on the foreign i'm the immigrant and that's what also goes into the identity politics in. in germany
where a lot of people with a migrant a background often feel that they never german or not it doesn't matter how we can be a world champion but you're still never good enough and people also need to realize that. he was a former politician and he has in the past make very controversial comments about multiculturalism and his slam in germany and feuds that somebody with this sort of use should not be running for the organization. from a sporting perspective what does that mean to german football to lose a player like oh i mean this is detrimental i mean for the longest time he was the model of integration this is where like people were saying all the kids for them i can back on especially those were of a turkish background this is the man that they need to look up to and you know he even won several awards for it and the big question now is what sort of impact will this have on aspiring footballers that you know with a migrant background in germany because a lot of the must be thinking wait a minute if this is how they treat
a world cup champion somebody that helped germany to win it in twenty fourteen one of they pay us who we can safely say is one of the most technically gifted players in a very long time you know a lot of these kids must be saying do i really want to represent germany and if that is the case that of course would be detrimental to the talent pool in germany and it also leaves the german f.a. in kind of an awkward position. has not been the only critical voice of this organization needs he hasn't and i mean by and chairman collins from a nigga just last week called the d.s. he basically a bunch of amateur us the former world cup captain back in twenty fourteen he basically said look he needs to really take a look at his leadership abilities and whites are co of course is a problematic is that with six weeks to go we will find out who will host the twenty twenty twenty and twenty four european championships and germany of course is in the running for that but they have such a bad image right now that see if they can bounce back if they can recover i know
him who did every sport suss thanks for your insights. but the impact of that is those resignation goes far beyond the soccer practice also shining a spotlight on germany's relations with its largest immigrant community those with turkish roots it's also reignited debate about whether enough is being done to counteract racism in the sport german chancellor angela merkel has now weighed in saying she respects decision to quit the national team g w took to the streets of berlin to find out how ordinary germans feel. personally it's the right decision but i think it's a shame that he had to resign because he doesn't feel accepted here is someone with a migration background so it would be much better for hunt clinton to resign that this field if you don't fully understand him when he says i'm a turk or part of me is turkish and i respect my president and i think it's brave and now we have to see how the f.a. reality gets on come this the next one from to be. i'm not that convinced by his
explanation for the photo of her so it's good that he's decided not to play for germany any more right if you don't for me there's been some of. these decisions with the national team was the right one. because the pressure was just too great. come on the. this is i think he did the right thing you know the fronts of a few. years like nelson the other stories that are making news around the world u.s. president trump has lashed out at iran's haasan more money on twitter it warned the iranian president not to threaten the u.s. or quote suffer consequences a likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before trump's tweet came hours after rouhani said hostile u.s. policy towards iran could lead to quote the mother of all wars.
