His basic thesis is that there is in the German national team less of a mental Problem, but there is a lack, in the meantime, just quality – and makes the, in particular, to a plurality of players of FC Bayern. “I think of Thomas Müller, Mats Hummels and Jérôme Boateng. You have an enormous media Power, which allows you to still be a regular player for FC Bayern and the national team, even though you have the level.“
Then Dugarry picks out in particular is: “How can Thomas Muller be today part of the German national team? For the past four or five years this Boy is not good.
