After months of torment, Bayern Munich defender Dante has revealed he had to actively ask clubmate Thomas Muller to stop making jokes about Germany’s 7-1 semi-final decimation of Brazil at the 2014 World Cup.
Speaking to Globoesporte, Dante whimpered:
“I spoke with them (the German players at Bayern Munich), but especially with Thomas.
“I told him that we could joke about anything but (the 7-1 drubbing) – that does not make me laugh. It doesn’t feel good being teased.
“Not all the Germans were like this but Thomas is the big joker.
“I said to him: ‘If you don’t stop, I’m going to hit you in every training session.’”
“Whassa matter? U mad brah?”
