Gelsenkirchen (SID) - football national coach Joachim Low trusts to the reach the final of the Champions League Schalke 04. "Everything is possible." Schalke impressed me. And the outsider role has done already some people well. United course knows the pressure situation. "But Schalke plays very closed and organized, you can feel the joy of playing, the body language is good," said the 51-Jahrige, which just a ticket to the semi-finals of the Schalke against Manchester United had ordered on Thursday next Tuesday, the Bild-Zeitung.
After a 2-1 in the second leg against Inter Milan on Wednesday (first leg 5-2) Schalke is all of a sudden one of Europe's football elite. That so looks also Ottmar Hitzfeld, who already won the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. "Of course Schalke can win the Champions League." In such a phase you can grow as a team about. Leverkusen has switched off in 2002 United in the semi-finals. "This can also create Schalke", said Hitzfeld.
And also the DFB sport Director Matthias Sammer, who in 1997 won the premier class with the Borussia under Hitzfeld, can well imagine a triumph of Schalke in the Champions League. "In the last three games out of the ordinary is possible for Schalke." You have nothing to lose, are physically and mentally very strong. "It is possible to eliminate the other teams," said the DFB's Sports Director.
