Joshua Kimmich has finally been able to perform on the pitch again for weeks after the Corona break. His girlfriend promptly comes and steals the show with a biting comment.
The fuss about his vaccination statements and the subsequent corona disease has subsided. Joshua Kimmich can once again make headlines with performances on the soccer field. After the winter break, the goal for the national player and professional from FC Bayern in the Bundesliga is results. Even if this went wrong against Gladbach (final result 1:2), hopes are now resting on the away game in Cologne (here at t-online in the live ticker).
Meanwhile, his girlfriend Lina Meyer sparked a laugh with a comment on Instagram – and it was at the expense of Joshua Kimmich’s styling skills. “Grateful for being voted national player of the year 2021 and for the great support. Many thanks to everyone,” writes the DFB kicker under a picture that shows him in the German national team’s dress. So it’s not all that wild, is it?
If it weren’t for his partner and her obviously somewhat different view of the “thing”. Because Lina Meyer’s contribution is literally about the Kimmich clothes. She joins the discussion with the words: “#take your jersey out of your pants”. Ergo: Your friend should kindly take his jersey out of his shorts.
So while Kimmich just wants to say thank you, his girlfriend stirs up – and diligently collects likes. As of Saturday afternoon, her comment had garnered more than 4,500 likes. Other users also take up the topic and react with statements like: “Finally someone tells him”. In fact, it is a kind of trademark of the 26-year-old, contrary to the usual practice of professional footballers, to stuff his jersey into his shorts.
How much seriousness there is in the joke of his partner, who is four years his senior, remains one of the many secrets that the two share. Because they actually keep their love largely out of the public eye. The two have been a couple since 2013 and met when Kimmich was still playing in Leipzig. At that time she was still studying law and did her state examination in the Saxon metropolis. She only came to Munich for her love in the summer of 2020 – and will probably not keep her opinion behind the mountain privately either.
