    Several German politicians slammed the pair, especially as Gündogan shirt had 'With respect to my president' written on it, which was immediately pounced upon by Germany's political right.
    he's isn't slammed for no reason

    he wasn't slammed as much for photos but that message was over the top

    You know (probably not) that in Turkish you only can say it that way to be respectful and if you translate it "my president" sounds "worse". But hey talk as if you know.

    Voting for Erdogan automatically makes you a foreigner in my eyes. Shows you are completely incompatible with our values.

    I don't know the German situation so I can't comment on that. Do know enough to say that people who willingly vote for Erdogan aren't integrated in Western society.

    The thread has (as expected given the topic) gone onto political issues and the EA forums aren’t the best place to discuss these so I’m locking it.
