Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness believes current Germany coach Joachim Loew must become tougher with his players.
Hoeness believes the national side have struggled in the past due to the squad being allowed too much freedom and has called on Loew to adopt a more disciplinarian approach in their current World Cup qualifying campaign.
“(In the past there has been) too much talk about to which Formula One race they want to visit to keep the players happy,” Hoeness told Spiegel.
“In the preparation everybody was discussing which ping-pong table was to be brought where, preferably on top of Mont Blanc. Sometimes less is more.
“Many players won’t be treated as soft if they screw up (in the future) I’m sure Jogi Loew has realised that already.”
Germany play Ireland and Sweden on in upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
