“It was an ill-considered saying with an inappropriate remark that I would be better off not saying. If anyone felt offended – sorry, that was zero point zero my intention.”
The 34-year-old played eight games for Germany before retiring in 2020.
ZDF has stated that there will be no further consequences for Wagner, who will again be commentating Wednesday’s game between Poland and Argentina.
