Hoeness praises "great performances" of Nagelsmann's Germany team

Uli Hoeness is full of praise for Germany's performances at Euro 2024.

 

Bayern Munich honorary president Uli Hoeness has sung the praises of Germany's Euro 2024 campaign, telling Kicker that Julian Nagelsmann's side have put in "great performances".

"They have completely turned the national team's negative image around. There will probably not be a better game at this tournament than Germany against Spain," Hoeness said, referring to Germany's 2-1 extra-time defeat in the quarter-finals.

“The real final has already taken place.”

Unlike in 2022, when Germany crashed out of the World Cup in Qatar in the group stage, Hoeness sees plenty of reason to be optimistic about the national team's future.

“They are on the right track. And in contrast to the World Cup in Qatar, the focus was finally on football again.”
