News : Interview with Xavi: “Löw touched my soul” – sport
Spain’s former world-class midfielder Xavi on the national coach’s influence on German football, formative encounters and his idea of where he could imagine Löw in the future.
A conversation about Joachim Löw’s time as national coach? The confirmation of Xavi Hernández, the former world class player in the Spanish midfield, was not long in coming. When training at his club al-Sadd in Qatar, where he now works as a trainer, is canceled after corona vaccinations, he has time. As soon as he picked up the phone, the 2010 world champion set the tone: “You have to be grateful to Joachim Löw, and you have to congratulate him. He was a luxury coach. He wanted a spectacle, attack football, and that’s what made him still world champion. In Brazil, after a 7-1 win against Brazil, after a final win against Argentina. He deserves every conceivable praise. “
