Lothar Matthaus was very much angered to hear about his own supposed death.
In Germany, an official letter from a family court addressed to the 150-times capped former international was returned with a “deceased” stamp on it.
According to Bild, Germany's version of The Sun, the letter had been originally sent from the Ministry for Family Affairs in Munich on behalf of one of Matthaus’ ex-wives, demanding €35,000 in child support payments.
The former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan player never received the letter however, as he is currently registered in Hungary, and it was ultimately returned with the word deceased stamped on it next to World Cup winner's name.
In reaction to hearing about the incident and his own recent death, the former Hungary and Bulgaria manager said to Bild,
"That is outrageous, everyone can see that I am alive, whether on TV or on the pitch. I am traceable!”
