“He played with us very bravely and aggressively right from the start,” said the 34-year-old in the leadership talk of the DFB Academy: “Of course we like that. We are a very dominant team that would like to take the reins. We have been pleased with this from the start. He tries to take every single player forward. ”

He is a very personable guy who can be told anything and who also says everything openly. He can also say something from time to time. He is a friendly, nice and at the same time authoritarian personality, ”said the 92-time German international.
