News : The opposite of a lame duck: Comment on Löw’s national coaches’ withdrawal – sport

Philipp Selldorf

Recently appeared in the trade magazine Kicker an interview with Joachim Löw, the scope and fundamental nature of which was reminiscent of Fidel Castro’s speeches. Photos in the magazine document a lecturing soccer national coach and an audience that consisted of editors-in-chief and chief reporters – evidence of an event with a state-supporting character. One of the depictions shows the unmistakably coiffed Löw from the rear and makes the viewer think of times when American entertainment cinema only depicted the President of the USA in silhouette for reasons of respect and awe.
