Report: Bierhoff has to go – what role Watzke plays in it

After the World Cup, the DFB has to make important decisions. Not only Hansi Flick, but above all Oliver Bierhoff is under scrutiny. The director of the national team must resign.

This is reported by the Bild newspaper. Accordingly, the top management is discussing involving DFB Vice President Hans-Joachim Watzke more closely in topics relating to the national team – at the expense of Bierhoff. Already during the World Cup, some players are said to have asked for the BVB managing director to be more involved in the dispute over the one-love tie.

Bierhoff, whose contract runs until 2024, could be limited to his duties as director and managing director of the DFB academy and no longer have any influence on the senior national team in the future. According to the picture, the DFB was already talking about a crisis scenario after the opening defeat against Japan. There was agreement that the decline of the national team since winning the World Cup eight years ago was less the fault of Flicks and more of Bierhoff's responsibility. The EM hero of 1996 ruled out a resignation shortly after the tournament.

The announcement by Bernd Neuendorf that he wants to have a conversation with Bierhoff and Flick in the coming week fits in with the report in the Bild newspaper. Watzke will also take part. The association's leadership expects a World Cup analysis and a strategy from Bierhoff and Flick on how the team can improve up to the home European Championship in 2024.
