San Marino officials have demanded an apology from Germany’s Thomas Muller, after he made comments about the team after Germany’s 8-0 win on Friday.

Muller  said that playing with a “team of amateurs” in the World Cup qualifier places German players at the risk of injury, and Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said “San Marino has nothing to do with professional football”.

San Marino Olympic Committee spokesman Alan Gasperoni  told Muller that Germany “does not own the game”.And San Marino Secretary of State for Tourism and Sport, Teodoro Lonfernini, called for a formal apology.

“Germany are world champions, but they are not the master of the world,”
