19/?? reasons to love Basti: Angela Merkel

German chancellor Angela Merkel once caught a glimpse of a naked Bastian Schweinsteiger, according to DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach. “When the chancellor comes into the dressing room, they all have to be dressed - that was my job at that time,” Niersbach said, according to Bild. “We forgot one player was still in the shower." When questioned about the identity of the player, Niersbach mischievously replied: "Not telling! That would be embarrassing for Bastian Schweinsteiger.”
