Karl-Heinz Rummenigge raves about Völler

World Cup surprise team Morocco is a role model for the German national team for Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“They showed us how passionate they are about playing football. There’s an Italian word for it. grinta That means guts or guts,” said the former CEO of the German record champions Bayern Munich to the news portal t-online. (NEWS: Everything you need to know about the Bundesliga)

The North Africans had reached the semi-finals in Qatar after beating Spain and Portugal and finished fourth.

For the 67-year-old, Rudi Völler is the perfect successor to Oliver Bierhoff as the new director of the DFB team in the current situation: “Rudi is someone who addresses things clearly. He has football know-how and played at the highest level himself.”

He described Völler as “winning the lottery for the DFB and the national team.” Hopefully she can now prove that in the friendlies.”

“Everyone who is called up to the team has to ensure that another train comes in. We need harmony, loyalty and cooperation, a close alliance between the DFB, the league, fans and the media,” added Rummenigge. (All news and background information about the German national team)

Even when he was responsible for Bayern, “we always attached importance to the fact that the most important team in the country is not FC Bayern, but the national team. Because it never polarized, but always electrified and united the fans. We now need an association and a team that lead the way.”

The ex-Bayern boss does not want to leave it that way that FIFA President Gianni Infantino is viewed critically in Germany.

“You know, from my point of view, FIFA’s main task is to develop football worldwide – and it lives up to it. Look at the semi-finals at the World Cup, there were two Europeans playing, for the first time a team from Africa, and South America was also represented,” emphasized Rummenigge.
