Former Germany and Nigeria manager Berti Vogts has declared that many of the current squad do not deserve to continue to represent the country following their shocking exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The defending champions suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to South Korea in their final group game on Tuesday and finished bottom of Group F on three points.
Die Mannschaft had previously not failed to progress past the group stage of a World Cup only in 1938, and Vogts has said that a number of the current players are not worthy of representing the national team again.
“I assume that the German Football Association will part with many players as they do not deserve to continue to play for our national team,” Vogts who once managed the Nigeria national team told Eurosport .
“That was not worthy of a German team. They have shown no will, it was all too slow.”
Vogts managed the German national team between 1990 and 1998, and led them to success at Euro ’96. He also managed the Super Eagles and took them to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008, their worst outing in eight years.
