After San Marino suffered a heavy 8-0 defeat to Germany last week, Thomas Muller didn't hold back during his post-match comments, claiming that he 'didn't understand the point of such uneven games'.
Muller went onto say that: "I understand that for them it is special to play against the world champions, I understand also that they can only defend with tough tackling. For this reason, though, I wonder if these are not games which bring unnecessary risks."
As well as Muller, Bayern president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge joined the chorus of disapproval, saying "San Marino has got nothing to do with professional football."
After Muller and Rummenigge's comments appeared in media outlets around the world, San Marino have now responded to Muller's comments in the best way possible.
San Marino, who have not taken a point at home in the competition since 1993, may have conceded eight against the Germans but this response from San Marinese director of communications Alan Gasperoni is brilliant.
Here is the response in full:
Dearest Thomas Muller,
You're right. The games like that on a Friday night, they're nothing. To you. On the other hand, dear Thomas, you do not need to come to San Marino for almost nothing in a weekend in which, without the Bundesliga, you could have spent with your wife on the sofa of you luxury villa or, who knows, you could have taken part in some events organised by your sponsors to bank several thousand euros. I believe you, but allow me to give 10 good reasons for which I think the San Marino-Germany match was very useful and if only you could could think about it and let me know what you think. It served to show you that not even against the teams as poor as ours you can't score a goal - and don't say you weren't pissed when Simoncini stopped you scoring...
With Love, your Alan.
TAKE A BOW.
