Joachim Löw disappointed after debate in crisis of the DFB team

BUndestrainer Joachim Löw clearly contradicted the German Football Association in the public image after the 0: 6 in Spain. “There was a press release that the coach needed emotional distance,” said the 60-year-old in a video interview on Monday. “That was incomprehensible to me because I don’t need emotional distance.” He has been with us for a long time and has seen a lot. “I said, give me a day and then I’ll be ready for any conversation.” Löw was “very” annoyed that in the past few days content from internal discussions with the DFB had come to the public: “That has disappointed me personally. “

Löw expressed the wish for “unity and trust” to the DFB. The 2014 world champion coach never thought of resigning. “I didn’t have that thought,” he said.

The national coach does not want to deviate from his path despite the last disappointing games with the 0: 6 in Spain as a low point. “We follow our red line and we are also convinced that there has been and will be a good development,” said a combative Löw and emphasized: “There is no reason to throw everything upside down.” Basically, the young one is Apart from the Spain game, the national team is on the right track.
