Schweinsteiger joins critics of Low

Wed 18 November 2020 | 16:44

Schweinsteiger and Klinsmann talk about Germany’s head coach decisions.

After

Germany

lost 6-0 against

Spain

last night which was their worst defeat 1931 many big names are mad at

Joachim Low

and are asking him to explain his decisions about the squad.

Low didn’t invite

Muller

and

Boateng

to the national squad and that has raised many questions and now after last night’s game Bastian

Schweinstieger

has talked about the matter too.

“The national coach and his team have one opinion but unfortunately I personally have a different one,” the former midfielder explained to ARD.

 

“Players like Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller won the treble with the best team in Europe. They play regularly in the first team and are quality German players. Why aren't they in the national team?

 

“In games like this especially, it's important to have players on the pitch that are a cut above, who have experience, who have quality. You could see that we don't have the required quality yet.”

 

Germany’s ex-coach

Klinsmann

has questioned Low too.

 

“Nobody can say why this decision was made besides Joachim Low and his coaching staff,” Klinsmann told ESPN. “We're out of the period now of experimenting with a new back line.

 

“Jonathan Tah came in, Rudiger was on site, but nobody could really step it up in that timeframe since the other players left the team.

 

“The biggest question still is about leadership – who is the real leader of that team? Obviously Manuel Neuer is a very quiet, very strong personality and still an outstanding goalkeeper, but nobody on the field besides Neuer has stepped it up in the last two years.

 

“The team lacks a leader, it's sad to see. It lacks a personality that after the second or third goal sends out some signals, does something, does a foul, interrupts the game, gets in the face of the Spanish players, and that raises the big question about Thomas Muller.

 

“Muller is a leader. He's the leader of the pack at Bayern Munich still because he keeps the young players in line. Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry... they all follow Thomas Muller on the field and that's why Bayern is unbeaten in I don't know how long in the Champions League.

 

“It's a big problem for Germany when we're just six or seven months out from the Euros.”
