Any football player with a good agent will have accounts on various social media sites. Now that the European Championship has kicked off, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are awash with posts from all the stars.
Mesut Özil's resignation from the German national team has sparked reactions in social media from all over Europe and beyond. However, Özil's Germany teammates have largely remained silent.
A 1934 article about a German club refusing to do the "Hitler salute" has been widely shared on social media in light of a decision by the NFL to curb protest. But how true is the story?
The attempt to label Mesut Özil as the problem after Germany's World Cup exit shows that the DFB is not willing to acknowledge its own failings. It's about time to make them accountable, writes DW's Felix Tamsut.
Germany's general manager has conceded that the DFB could have handled the affair surrounding two players of Turkish origin better. Oliver Bierhoff said that they may have underestimated the effect of the problem.
