Kiev (AP) – Joachim Loew has defended his course with the German national football team.
“I know what I’m doing, I’ve been there for a long time”, said the ARD coach shortly before the Nations League match in Ukraine. In the tight schedule caused by the corona pandemic, this also includes saving regular staff and giving younger players a chance.
“I see the big picture and not always just one game,” said Löw. Recently, former national players such as Lothar Matthäus criticized the DFB head coach for not playing consistently on the result in the most recent matches after Corona’s half-time and sometimes using players who were reservists in their clubs. “I’m also willing to take the criticism on myself,” noted Loew, but also said, “I do things with conviction.”
