Good news for German national team coach Julian Nagelsmann: he can soon choose a new striker. Former Al-Ittihad striker Deniz Undav had a good chat with the ‘Bundstrainer’.
Deniz Undav scored this season for Stuttgart, number 3 in the Bundesliga. The former Al-Ittihad striker scored 8 goals in 10 league matches.
This put him on the radar of national coach Julian Nagelsmann, who could use an accurate striker with a view to participating in the European Championship in his country.
I was surprised, but also very happy.
“We spoke on the phone with each other,” Undav said yesterday after winning the cup over Dortmund (2-0).
“I was surprised, but I was also very happy. I couldn’t understand it. It was a good conversation.”
Undav said he would gladly accept an invitation to join the national team. “I told the national team coach that I would take the opportunity to play for Germany.”
Date in March? Then Nagelsmann comes up with a new choice.
In the European Championship, Germany plays against Scotland, Hungary and Switzerland. The second match in the group is scheduled to be held in Stuttgart.
