DThe coaches of the European national teams have changed less- Hans Frick Ranked only eleventh in the list of manageable since 1926. Berti Vogts undertook the most difficult task in 1990. Franz Beckenbauer, the undisputed dazzling light of German football, replaced Dvor after the EM disaster in 1984-a failure in the preliminary rounds was enough-and led Germany to runner-up at the 1986 World Cup , And then boarded the top of the world in 1990 football.
Fans will remember the image of the emperor walking alone on the lawn of the Roman stadium.There may be such a photo from Rio de Janeiro, nothing more Joachim Love At the peak of his career, after serving as the head coach for eight years and the assistant coach of Jurgen Klinsmann two years ago, he didn’t want to resign, but wanted to enjoy a little fame. But this rarely works in sports.
Comfort and feel
Loew now leaves his successor with an easier task than in 2014. The national team has gone through unsuccessful years and has reached a dead end. This is the well-known initial situation.Like in 2000 Rudy Waller Had to intervene. Although he won the runner-up in the 2002 World Cup, he has not found a way out.
This was the case in 2004, when Jurgen Klinsmann-with his assistant Joachim Love and the national team coach Oliver Birhoff -Take over and announce in his usual research that everything will be used in the German Football Association in the future.
There are many comforts and feelings behind and below. At the end of the Love era, people will be surprised to see that this revolutionary method is running out.The situation of the national team now is surprisingly similar to that of the time, at most German Football Association As a connection, it provides a more destructive picture than it was then (which is bad enough).
Frick is Oliver Bierhoff’s first choice, who has been promoted to sports director, so for DFBFor the overly successful former Bayern coach, this should be at least cautiously correct. As the former assistant coach and sports director of the association, he understands all the problem areas of DFB. Whether he is willing to make the necessary changes is still a question. However, his dispute with Bayern Sports Director Hassan Salihamidzic shows that he is not afraid of conflict.
For the new national team coach, as the head coach, he will deal with the team’s problems. Bayern Rushing to resolve and leading the club to success, the Munich team under his predecessor Nico Kovac seems to be at least as far away from the top of the world as the national team. The foundation of the national team is far less fragile than the results. Most importantly, the style of play since 2014 shows that it is much more stable than what Klinsmann and Loew found in 2004.
The national team is a big problem, composed of many different possibilities, and the national team coach must be the right combination-and very importantly-must also coach. At Bayern, Flick has proven that he has a knack for this, but there are still weaknesses for young people. Especially the communication with U-21 coach Stefan Kuntz, if he stays in DFB, it should be more effective in the future. During his tenure as sports director, Flick finally hired the most successful DFB coach of the past few years.
