Bierhoff: Reason behind youth success is education

Germany national team business manager and former player Oliver Bierhoff  is sure the good young generation of the players is a result of investments in football and cooperation with the clubs.

“Football is very organized in Germany, we have a very good infrastructure,” he told the reporters after Germany win against Mexico (4-1) in FIFA Confederations Cup semifinals.

“There are a lot of investments in the youth. The federation also invested a lot in the education of coaches. The co-working among the Federation and professional clubs is very good. The young players also get the chance to play in Bundesliga.

“Everything comes together, and you see all these young players that are educated and are able to play in different systems.

While asked to compare the team they have now with the team that won World Cup 2014, Bierhoff noted.

“World Cup is a different tournament, there is a whole different pressure there. Back then we had outstanding players with great international experience. Now we have very good players, but still they are younger, obviously less experienced, although they play very well. We are satisfied,” the former Germany international told VBet News.
