According to Hans-Pieter Briegel, Pep Guardiola has his share of responsibility in changing the face of a German selection, which goes through a very complex period.
Former Albania and Besiktas coach, Hans-Pieter Briegel Pep Guardiola charged accusation of the decline of the German team, in an interview with The Repubblica. According to him, the Catalan technician has changed the mindset of German players during his stay in Munich Bayern (2013-2016). "A very simple principle has escaped our mind: in football, the result is more important than the control of the game. Since Guardiola arrives at Bayern Munich, something has changed. We had the chance that 75% of possession needed to win. But control of the ball is not enough to have an outcome, not at least at leastBriegel said. "Recent history, as well as the French World Champion, has shown that you can also win by leaving the opponent's ball and owning less than 50% of handsHe added.
