Söder posts mask selfie with Lahm - Instagram users enthusiastic: "Two Bavarian legends"

"Markus, are you in the starting line-up tomorrow too?" Commented a user on Monday.

Another was apparently so enthusiastic about the post that he sent a heart-eyed smiley and wrote: "Two Bavarian legends." But Söder's Instagram post did not only generate positive comments.

“And the children continue to sit in the classroom wearing masks and have to be tested twice a week.

Children don’t vote = children don’t count ”, criticized one woman.

“Which drama and the kids are wearing masks at school?” Suggests another one in the same notion.

Söder selfie with Lahm causes criticism: "Small clubs and amateur sports look into the tube"

The fact that the stadium can be played in front of several thousand spectators also does not go down well with everyone: "Children are not allowed to do sports, but football can be played with thousands of spectators", read on in the comments.

Another person also points out the injustice: “Just boycott the junk.

Only 500 spectators with seats are allowed at outdoor events, but suddenly 14,000 are possible at the EM.

Small clubs and amateur sports look down the drain, but when UEFA

opens its wallet

, it works. ”
