DFL-Neujahrsempfang: Watzke: Deutscher Fußball im Vergleich sehr wettbewerbsfähig
DFL supervisory board chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke sees German football on the right track compared to other top European leagues.
He wishes “that we have self-confidence again,” said Watzke at the New Year’s reception of the German Football League in Offenbach. “That we don’t keep telling each other, there’s so much money flowing in the Premier League. Yes, and what’s the problem?” The Bundesliga currently has seven clubs in the European Cup competitions. “That’s a great record,” said the Borussia Dortmund boss.
Although the national team have recently disappointed. But if it’s just national selection, he doesn’t understand where the Premier League gets its confidence from, the 63-year-old said. “I think we’re in a much better position at the moment than we were two or three years ago. We have to continue on this path, we have to go our own way, a German way.” This included the lowest ticket prices for the games and the highest number of spectators.
The league should not participate in the “rat race” who pays more money, said Watzke. With “self-confidence, attitude and ambition, a lot can be achieved”.
