DFB to hold crisis meeting with Flick and Bierhoff next week, reveals Neuendorf

DFB president Bernd Neuendorf has reacted to Germany's World Cup exit, saying he has scheduled a meeting with Hansi Flick and Oliver Bierhoff next week.
German Football Association (DFB) president Bernd Neuendorf has announced today that he will meet with head coach Hansi Flick, general manager Oliver Bierhoff and DFB vice-president and Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke next week to discuss Germany's disappointing World Cup exit.

"The elimination from the tournament hurts extraordinarily. Nevertheless, we have to look ahead and will therefore initiate an orderly procedure on how to deal with this situation," Neuendorf told journalists at the airport in Doha today.

"This means that we have developed a roadmap. That roadmap is that we will sit down together next week. That means Hansi Flick, that means Oliver Bierhoff, 'Aki' Watzke and myself. That will be a first meeting where we will discuss how this situation is.

"My expectation from the sporting management is that it will make an initial sporting analysis of this tournament at this meeting. But that they also develop perspectives for the time after the tournament with a view to the European Championship at home.

"The analysis must also include the development of the national team and our football since the last World Cup in 2018."
