Hanzi Flick, coach of the German national football team, admitted that he had made mistakes that contributed to the German national team’s exit from the group stage of the 2022 World Cup that was held in Qatar, but he also confirmed that the team was dealt with unfairly.

In two interviews with the sports magazine Kicker and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, published on Monday, Flick welcomed the appointment of former German striker and former coach Rudi Voller as national team manager.

Flick said in his interview with Kicker magazine: Rudy was a key player in German football in the past decades. He has a lot of experience, I enjoy dialogue with him, we get along well.

And about what the German national team did, specifically when the players covered their mouths before the start of the Japan match, Flick said in this regard: This was not a good thing, and I hope we learn from that situation. All of us, the politicians and I, as well as the Football Association, are not supposed to have such pressures again, whether from the players as individuals or from the team in general.
