German Captain Michael Ballack has no future in the German national football team, and even World Cup team captain Philipp Lahm must change itself again.
Frankfurt/Main (SID) - German Captain Michael Ballack has no future in the German national football team, and even World Cup team captain Philipp Lahm must change itself again: while the 34-year old Ballack in the match against Brazil should goodbye on the August 10 in Stuttgart with a final appearance at most from the DFB Elf, Defender Lahm in the national team in the future will play back on the left side of defence.
"I can imagine quite that I me adapt the Bavaria, if Philipp Lahm again moves to the left." With a view to the European Championship in the coming year, it would be not ideal, he the page would have to return all three or four games. "On the left side he plays offensive also something more spectacular," Loew said two days before the charity match against Uruguay in Sinsheim (20.00 / ZDF) on Friday.
However, the clock for Leverkusens midfielder Ballack in the selection of the German Football Association (DFB) seems to be expired 98 tests. After the game against Uruguay and the subsequent European Championship qualifying in Austria on 3 June and four days later in Azerbaijan, Loew announced a decision in the "Ballack case".
Should Ballack against Brazil complete no unofficial farewell game want, his career in the DFB Jersey will then probably end. "I have said that we can fill the position after the failures of Schweinsteiger and Bender Trasch, Kroos and Rolfes." I have confidence in the team, I have nominated for these three matches. I have openly discussed things with Michael. "We are after the games result in a final conversation and together decide when the time has come to comment on," Loew said.
