Basel (dpa) – DFB director Oliver Bierhoff also sees the clubs as responsible in the complicated EM season.
It cannot be “that it is always the national team that is left behind. We take certain things into account. But it will be extremely important for everyone involved to direct the players and give them a rest here and there,” Bierhoff said. Sport1 about the great excitement of the threat of overburdening the national players.
National coach Joachim Löw is angry about the stifled game plan after the half time of Corona. “We know that load management will be an extremely important aspect”, said Bierhoff: “We have taken this up with the academy and actively approached all national team clubs. We are in dialogue with all the experts we have. Because we have to coordinate there.”
Despite the special situation, partly due to the corona pandemic, Bierhoff is convinced that the German national team can play for the European title in the summer of 2021. “In any case, we have combined incredibly strong, young, talented players with players who have a lot of experience,” said the national team manager. “You can also see how the demand from abroad is there for our players. They will continue to grow there.” That is why he is confident: “We will not go to the tournament as favorites. But we will get our chance.”
