Crystal Palace midfielder Meyer furious with Dad after Schalke taunt

Crystal Palace midfielder Max Meyer is furious with his father after a social media post this week.

Meyer Snr posted a video of himself driving his Lamborghini through Gelsenkirchen, celebrating the dismal restart of his son's former club Schalke. S04 have lost their three games since the Bundesliga resumed.

Meyer Snr said, "It doesn't get any better, men, it doesn't get any better. Through the forbidden city of Gelsenkirchen to the tax advisor. Nice with the paid Lamborghini from the bankruptcy club. Delicious..."

The comments have infuriated Max, who responded: "I just got notified of my dad's video.

"I am deeply shocked by this video. It does not fit my world, it does not fit this time, it is never really appropriate. I owe Schalke 04 a lot and distance myself from the nature and content of this video."
