Borussia Dortmund have accepted Bastian Schweinsteiger’s apology after footage of the Bayern Munich midfielder signing offensive songs about their Bundesliga rivals, appeared online.
A video showed Schweinsteiger taking part in a chant featuring the lyrics “BVB sons of b*tches” while celebrating Germany’s World Cup triumph.
The midfielder subsequently apologised which Dortmund graciously accepted along with an offer to give the World Cup winner singing lessons.
“Dear Bastian Schweinsteiger,” began a statement on the club’s official Facebook page starts.
“It is absolutely no problem that you drink a few beers, let off some steam and sing a song without really thinking it through after winning the World Cup.
“We have always seen you as a fair guy. We would never have kicked up a fuss over your chants and we obviously accept your video apology. We wish you a pleasant holiday in Croatia.
“P.S.: It is possible for you to get your singing right. If you need any singing lessons, just let us know. We are happy to help you out.”
