Klose disassociates himself from Nazi banner

Lazio's German international striker Miroslav Klose has disassociated himself from a fan banner linked to Nazi Germany.
An Associated Press photo showed Lazio supporters holding up a banner that said "Klose mit uns" _ "Klose with us" _ during Sunday's derby with Roma, with the S's written in old German script in the style of the SS.
The phrase is a takeoff on an old military slogan, "Gott mit uns" _ "God with us" _ that was also used by the Nazis.
The ANSA news agency reports Klose saying, "Football cannot be mixed with politics. Politics should remain outside the stadium."
Klose scored a last-minute winner in Lazio's 2-1 win in the derby, giving him six goals in eight matches in all competitions with Lazio since transferring from Bayern Munich.
