Unfortunately, the circumstances are such that I can’t be excited about my NT for now.
We went from drawing against Denmark (friendly) 2:2 at home, beating Czech Republic 2:1 at home, beating the likes of Bulgaria, Montenegro etc. comfortably and giving England a hell of a competition in the first match, to projected last in the 2022 WC qualifying group and we just lost against Jordan… freaking Jordan! 0:2 at home. I watched the match in the stadium and it was a total embarrassment.
We sacked the previous coach Bernard Challandes and I really hope, in fact it is my greatest wish that we don’t mess around this time and from all the rumored coaches we get Felix Magath.
Some are saying that his tactics are old and he is sort of a ‘dictator’, but I think that is exactly what this group needs because they are talented and have a lot of potential. They have become extremely spoiled and arrogant that they consider themselves as superstars, when in fact no one but Amir Rrahmani who is now an undisputed starter at Napoli, is doing anything meaningful with their respective clubs.
So yeah… I’d like to see a ‘dictator’ in this NT because you can’t fool around and lose to the likes of Jordan in front of your fans, with a full A team (bar 1-2 players). That’s not how you fight for your country’s pride and that’s offensive to the fans. Besides, Magath has an impressive CV having won 2 Bundesliga-s with Bayern, 2 DFB Pokals and 1 DFB Supercup; 1 Bundesliga with Wolfsburg and 1 Intertoto Cup with Stuttgart. His latest results are not that impressive but I still think he’d do a great job here.
Other rumors include coaches such as: Alexander Frei, Roberto Carlos, Gianni de Biasi, Roberto Donadoni etc. - none of which I’m keen of.
