Berti Vogt Urges DFB To Consult Rohr, Klopp After World Cup Debacle

Former Super Eagles head coach Berti Vogts has called on the German Football Association (DFB) to consult foreign-based German managers like Gernot Rohr, David Wagner and Jurgen Klopp after the World Cup debacle in Russia.

The future of national team manager Joachim Low is in doubt following the holders’ shameful exit in the group stage of the ongoing tournament in Russia.

Germany finished bottom of Group F behind South Korea, Mexico and group winners Sweden.

Berti Vogts was speaking about the crisis in the German national team during an interview with Rheinische Post

In his words, he said: “It does not make any sense to take any quick shots now.”

“It would make sense to embrace the knowledge of experts. Why not invite Jurgen Klopp, David Wagner, Gernot Rohr and others, simply have a conversation at the association headquarters and listen to their opinion?”

Berti Vogts was in charge of the Super Eagles for one year before he resigned in February 2008 in the wake of the team’s failure to qualify for the semifinal of the 2008 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ghana.

Gernot Rohr recently signed a new two-year deal to stay on as the Super Eagles head coach until 2020 having been appointed in 2016.
