Ahead of the World Cup qualifying match against Armenia, national coach Hansi Flick vehemently disputed rumors that he had had a bad relationship with Leroy Sane during his time at Bayern Munich. While an ordinary player fails and someone is on edge, Timo Werner was excited about “role model” Jamal Musila.
“It was said that we had problems in Munich, this is nonsense and explained by it. That wouldn’t be the case here either,” Flick said at PT before the Armenia game. He also praised his pupil for his performance against Liechtenstein and his defensive behavior: “He is always able to create space for himself and be dangerous. His dynamic is very important, when he plays in this way, everything is said. He has shown, that he is ready.”
And in the match against the qualifying group leader, Robin Goossens will certainly be absent after being injured during the week, but he is “on the improvement”. The use of the flu-filled Kai Havertz is still uncertain, but Manuel Noir is certainly available. “We won’t reveal the lineup yet,” Flick said.
Compared to the 2-0 win over the football dwarf, the national coach hopes to make better use of the chances: “It is not a tactical problem. The conviction of the last action may be missing, and we have to get there. We were hoping for a different start and more goals. We couldn’t set our score in a way that would score more goals.”
Werner shared this view and delivered a eulogy for young player Jamal Musiyala, who kicked off the Chelsea striker’s 1-0 win over Liechtenstein with a solid work: “He’s gone through the roof in the past six months, he’s a fantastic player with a huge potential for the future.. Jamal is just out on the pitch and playing his game. and enjoy.
DFB-PK with Flick and Werner in the live stream bar for reading
This was from Stuttgart.
Werner on Stuttgart: I come from here, I grew up not far from the stadium, it’s my home. We Swabian are known for being more quick critics, but we are very passionate about football. We have to show that we are all great kickers who will be on the field tomorrow. Then the Stuttgart fans go home satisfied.
Werner on David Raum: He also made a giant step, I watched the match against Dortmund and he was very good there. I know what it feels like to be there for the first time. With qualities that he fits in very well, he is an asset to our team. If he comes tomorrow, no one has any worries.
Werner on Musiala: He’s crossed the line in the last six months, he’s a great player and he has a great future. We should be happy to have players of his age with us. Jamal is just out on the field playing his game and having fun. Maybe we other players should get back in that way too. We can learn a little from this youthful indolence.
Werner on Flick and a possible change to Bayern Munich: We haven’t talked about the past, we are glad to be able to work together. We are always fine and then of course we are also glad that the cooperation can be very good. In the first match, I was able to show the goal that it’s not bad to let me play.
Werner on his early World Cup memories: When I was six, that was the final of the 2002 World Cup when Ronaldo scored two goals. The first tournament I really noticed was in 2006.
Werner on his first competitive goal this season: It is always important to be a striker when you score. It was good that I started against Liechtenstein.
Werner on the team’s lack of confidence in scoring goals: Scoring goals is something like that. Sometimes you win matches like Liechtenstein 8-0 because the first balls go right in. We have to get the consistency we need in the end, but we have so many dangerous players on the team that we don’t have to fear in the long run. The coach will always have more solutions for how to face opponents.
Werner on the role of Benedict Howedes: I was lucky enough to play with him again. He is a nice and wonderful man. He knows the processes and knows what makes the environment move and what the player needs. He can put himself in his shoes and has a lot of experience, as well as the players in his position. So far the situation has been very comfortable, it’s very good staff.
Werner about the game: We want to get nine points from three games and take the next step tomorrow. We are looking forward to the audience.
This was from Flick, and Werner will soon follow.
Line-up flick with Werner and Gnabry: One is already in the head, and the two players are definitely a part of that.
Flick over the team: We have two very important matches ahead. The first game was also about getting used to, and we wouldn’t change those many situations. It’s about winning the next two games.
Flick over Boateng: is not true that I advised him to switch. You talk about certain things, but he’s old and knows what he wants. I think it’s good to have a club that plays internationally. In the past two years, good development has returned to a good level. We always welcome good players.
Click the first conclusion: I hardly had time to worry. I’m enjoying it, it feels really good. It’s fun to work with my team, I have a lot of quality in the team.
A sane flick: We showed an earlier scene when the team followed him after he lost the ball and got the ball back. He is always able to create space and become dangerous. His dynamics are very important, when he plays in this way, everything is said. He showed that he was ready. It was said that we had problems in Munich, which is nonsense and explained by it. That wouldn’t be the case here either.
Exercise flick: We finished the Liechtenstein match and analyzed it. We have the final training today and we will continue to work on one or the other. We have exhausted everything.
Flick over pressure from the audience: The fans want to see the team giving everything on the pitch, and then the support comes. I’m looking forward to the Stuttgart game, the atmosphere has always been good here, the stadium half full creates a good atmosphere.
Flick on disappointment in Liechtenstein: It is not a tactical problem. The conviction of the last action may be missing, and we have to get there. We were hoping for a different start and more goals. You know Liechtenstein can defend very well, and we couldn’t set our score in such a way that more goals would be scored. I see a lot of quality and good cooperation in the team.
Flick to replace Gosens: We will not reveal the list yet. David Raum is the only left back in training, but we have other options and we’re waiting.
Flick to Armenia: They will try to press in midfield, switch quickly and bring their four attacking men to the scene. Mkhitaryan and Adamian are fast and technically good players. We need a good defense left.”
Staff flick: Manuel Neuer is fully back in training and will be ready for work tomorrow. Robin Goossens will be absent but he is improving. It’s not as bad as it was initially thought. Kai Havertz has a mild flu-like infection, we’ll have to wait and see if he can train this afternoon.
Hansi Flick is here, it starts.
