  • DFB before a new start: The first international match after the catastrophic World Cup in Qatar will take place on Saturday.

  • Before the game against Peru, the DFB invited to the PK: national coach Hansi Flick and Joshua Kimmich attended.

  • Not only DFB topics in focus: It was also about Julian Nagelsmann's departure from FC Bayern.

+++ Shortly thereafter, the PK is over, on Saturday evening (8.45 p.m.) the first preparatory game against Peru continues.


+++ How do you get the audience on your side?

“Even if there is a lot of talk about being close to the fans and public training sessions, at the end of the day everything stands and falls with the victories.

We have to win the games again.

There has to be a certain performance principle.

Then we can kindle a euphoria again.

If we don't win games, we can't expect people to cheer at home." +++

DFB captain Kimmich on Nagelsmann-Aus: trainer discussions "occupy one of course"

+++ How did Jo Kimmich deal with the World Cup?

"That's taken away from you when you come home and have three kids waiting at home.

It was important for me to spend time with my family.” He also reflected a lot on himself and his performance.


+++ How much does Kimmich deal with the Nagelsmann issue?

“Of course, discussions like this keep you busy.

It's about the coaching position in your own club, he's the coach you work with every day.

But that shouldn't play a role in training or during the game.

But there is also enough idle time where you are in the room, reading and observing one or the other.

Of course that keeps you busy," says Kimmich about Julian Nagelsmann's release.


DFB-PK: Julian Nagelsmann "easily in the top three" of Kimmich's previous coaches

+++ Kimmich is asked about Nagelsmann again.

"The decision hasn't been made, so I'm not saying anything about it.

I can only say that Julian Nagelsmann is an outstanding coach.

I've had a lot of top coaches now, but I'd say he's easily in the top three of my previous coaches.

But I can't say anything about the current state of affairs." +++

+++ How attached is Joshua Kimmich to his new captain's armband?

“In general, it will now have little effect on my game and my role for me personally.

The captain's question is always a matter for the public, but within the team I will present the same as in the last few weeks and months.

It is my aspiration to lead the way and take responsibility, I will try to live up to that.” +++

DFB-PK: Captain Joshua Kimmich talks about "hot topic" Nagelsmann

+++ What does Kimmich think of the new nominations and the restructuring of the DFB squad?

“I think it is very important that we focus on the incorporation of processes.

It's good for us to have a certain permanent staff, but it's also the responsibility of the coach that we're well positioned across the board.


+++ It continues with Joshua Kimmich.

Even before his statements, Franziska Wülle asks the new DFB captain for his opinion on Nagelsmann-Aus.

Kimmich says: "Yes, in general it is of course absolutely understandable that this is a hot topic now.

On the other hand, there hasn't been any confirmation from the club yet.

That's why I hope you understand that I can't and won't say much about it." +++

DFB-PK in the live ticker: National coach Hansi Flick is tight on the binding issue

+++ That's it with Hansi Flick, the press conference with Joshua Kimmich will follow shortly.


+++ Hansi Flick is also asked about the binding issue, since the issue was decided without the actual captain Manuel Neuer.

"Manuel Neuer is not there and Jo Kimmich is wearing the bandage.

I think everyone can live with that,” he replies succinctly.


+++ Flick was also criticized for his new faces, he reacts to it in a relaxed and professional manner.

“We do our job and consider what we can accept for players.

When one or the other established player is gone, something develops in the group and that's exactly what we wanted to provoke.

Players who are in the background can now play their way to the front.

We are now very satisfied with the intensity and the dynamics, especially in the wing positions,” Flick assesses his newcomers and the training of the last few days.


+++ Does the Nagelsmann news interfere with the processes of the DFB team?

"I was already talking about tailwind before the World Cup, it probably won't be the case that it inspires the players.

Now we have to wait and see what will come out in the end,” Flick distracts a little from the topic.


DFB-PK in the live ticker: ter Stegen replaces Manuel Neuer - "Marc will play both games"

+++ Niclas Füllkrug and Timo Werner will probably form the dual leadership, as Flick announces.

"We'll have two top games tomorrow, but we'll set up a little differently in midfield.

That means a different approach for our full-backs,” said the national coach.


+++ "I have a successful past with Manuel (Neuer, note), but he knows that the performance principle applies to us.

Marc will play both games," says Flick, looking at the goalkeepers, Marc-André ter Stegen from FC Barcelona will be able to prove himself as number one against Peru and Belgium.


+++ What is the motto of the game against Peru.

“The team wants to show that they can approach the game with confidence and commitment.

We want to get good results and win the games.

Those are also the things every fan wants to see.

If we can continue to show the commitment we have shown in the last few days on the pitch tomorrow, we can be very satisfied.

I'm very happy with the new ones.


DFB spokeswoman and Hansi Flick talk about Nagelsmann-Aus: "Very, very surprised"

+++ “There is a topic that has occupied many here in the room.

That's the news about FC Bayern," said press spokeswoman Wülle, who gave the national coach a chance to speak on the subject.

“Of course we were very, very surprised by the headlines last night.

But I don't think Bayern Munich has commented yet.

Out of respect for Julian and Bayern, I won't say anything on the subject during the PK, that says it all," said Flick.


+++ The press conference begins, press spokeswoman Franziska Wülle enters the press room with national coach Hansi Flick.

Update from March 24, 12:15 p.m .:

The press conference of the German Football Association will begin in three quarters of an hour, at which national coach Hansi Flick and midfielder Joshua Kimmich will answer journalists’ questions.

In view of the events of the last day, it will probably also be about Julian Nagelsmann's release, even if the DFB will probably try to address a broader topic with regard to the questions asked.

Because the game against Peru shouldn't be pushed into the background, after all, the preparation for the European Championship begins on Saturday for the Flick squad.

DFB-PK in the live ticker: Hansi Flick and Joshua Kimmich answer questions from press representatives

Since the first DFB game since the preliminary round at the World Cup in Qatar takes place on Saturday, Hansi Flick and, of all people, Bayern star Joshua Kimmich step in front of the microphones.

Flick in particular, who held the position of head coach at FC Bayern from November 2019 to summer 2021, will be able to empathize well with his successor Nagelsmann.

A month-long dispute with sports director Hasan Salihamidzic ended his exceptionally successful era with Munich.

Joshua Kimmich's reaction to his coach's release is also eagerly awaited.

The players were apparently taken by surprise by the club's sudden decision, as illustrated by the reaction of João Cancelo, who was informed of his coach's leave of absence in a live interview.
