Germany legend, Franz Beckenbauer has taken a swipe at the national team following their early knockout at the World Cup.
Germany led by Joachim Low crashed out in the group stages of the World Cup, after losing to Mexico and South Korea.
Beckenbauer, meanwhile, has claimed that there was a lack of desire from certain players.
“From the outside, I also had the impression that the passion had been somewhat watered down in the four years since the World Cup victory,” he told Bild. “Therefore, a rebuild with hungry, hot players is needed.
“The singing of the national anthem also plays a role. Who sings before the game frees himself more than chewing gum.”
