Football icon Van Basten apologizes for saying ‘Sieg heil’ on TV show

Retired Dutch football star Marco van Basten has apologized on Saturday for saying “Sieg heil” during a live television show after a German coach was interviewed.


Van Basten, working as an analyst for Fox Sports, was off camera Saturday when he used the German phrase for “hail victory” that became notorious for its use at Nazi rallies.


Later in the show, Van Basten said: “It was not my intention to shock people. I apologize.”
