The German national football team continues to take lessons from the disappointing international year with the introduction of the World Cup in Russia. As national team director Oliver Bierhoff said Sport Bild, applies in the selection of the German Football Association (DFB) in the future a new code of ethics established by the players. This includes, among other things, banning cellphones while eating and avoiding click education.
"When you eat together, you don't read, this is a meeting where you have to talk to each other. The players themselves have realized that the same is true now for their cellphones," Bierhoff said. Click formations in teams discussed at the World Cup are also discussed critically. "It's true that we intentionally want to mix more. Players want to get to know each other better and create beautiful moments together, which is the basis for the team's success," said the European champions from 1996.
In addition, DFB players in the future will show more Fannähe, such as fulfilling signature requests or selfies. "We want to sharpen what the meaning and responsibility brought to be a national player," Bierhoff said: "This includes pride to be allowed to play for this team and his country, and respect fans."
On Tuesday night, international teams Thomas Müller, Leon Goretzka, Sebastian Rudy, Kevin Trapp, Serge Gnabry and Nico Schulz were good examples. They visited SV Lindenau for children in Leipzig. In the sports hall Müller and Co. completed, as well as around 50 children's courses built with balls. After the DFB star patiently signed autographs and posed for a group photo.
