At that time, the new German national team sports director Wöhler bluntly said that he was worried about the team’s future personnel reserves.
“Of course the team has to score. That’s the only downside: We didn’t manage to capitalize on the big chances,” Wöhler said of Germany’s World Cup exit in Qatar.
“That’s the cruelty of competitive sports: you play good games against Spain and Costa Rica and you get punished harshly for a bad 20 minutes against Japan.”
In addition to leading the German team to a successful European Cup at home in 2024, Völler is also committed to developing young players.
“We’ll have a great team for another four, five, six years,” he said. “I see a dark cloud looming when it comes to talented young players and the academy.”
For such a situation, Worrall proposed a new strategy: not only to make those players with average talents become excellent, but also to make excellent players be specially promoted.
But he also stressed: “This is a difficult task.”
