National coach Hansi Flick gave autographs to several fans and took photos.
However, the ex-Bayern coach turned down a wish from a little boy.
Munich – Hansi Flick and the German national soccer team are lagging behind their own expectations.
The DFB coach “absolutely” wanted to win the group in the Nations League.
After only one point from the duels against Hungary (0:1) and England (3:3), the DFB-Elf only finished third in Group 3 of the A-League.
Is that why Flick is currently in a bad mood?
At least the national coach did not fulfill a fan request during the international break.
DFB: Small fan asks Flick: "No, I won't do that"
A video is circulating on Twitter that shows Flick signing autographs with children.
Flick signs a soccer shoe before a young fan asks: "Can you say hello to two friends?" The national coach is not interested, shakes his head and replies: "No, I won't do that." You then hear a disappointed "too bad" from the fan “.
When and where the clip was recorded is unclear.
It was shared on Tik Tok on September 26, on the day of the 3-3 win against England.
The video is probably older.
The same account recently published a video in which DFB kicker Leon Goretzka reacted annoyed to a young autograph collector.
Hansi Flick: His record as a DFB coach
In his first eight games as national coach there were eight wins with a goal difference of 33:2.
However, the opponents were called Armenia, Liechtenstein or Israel.
In the past seven games - the Nations League games and a test against the Netherlands - there was only one win.
In June, the DFB-Elf won 5-2 against Italy.
Otherwise: five draws and the frighteningly weak performance in the 0-1 draw against Hungary.
How is the current form of the German team to be classified?
The sometimes wild 3:3 against England provided more questions than answers.
Flick therefore sent his national players back to their clubs with a clear warning – including the Bayern faction.
"Especially at a World Cup, things like that are deadly, you're eliminated faster than you think," said Flick about the mysterious system crash with three goals conceded in twelve minutes.
"We had the guts bought off that."
Less than two months remain until the start of the World Cup.
Who nominates the national coach?
A former DFB jewel dreams of a flick call after strong ideas – and makes it clear: “I would go to Qatar by bike.”
