It could look so rosy for Germany s most successful team sports selection of recent years. The team of Unrestrained Toni Söderholm starts on this Thursday with the traditional Germany Cup into an exciting new season. The Olympia Second of 2018 and Current World Cup fourth are preparing for the four-nation tournament in Krefeld on the winter games in Beijing in February and the World Championship in Helsinki in May. It s a very, very important tournament. We will definitely win it, Södertholm said before the kick-off on Thursday against Russia (19.45 clock). We want to start positively in a challenging year.
That will definitely. Not only athletic for Söderholm, who has had much more internationally competitive players than his predecessor Marco Storm after successfully completing the end of 2018. Only a few actors who are in Krefeld are also available in the Olympic squad with the NHL stars. Some are likely to play for a possible World Cup mission.
Deb redirects hesitant coach
But about the storm in the world tip under Sidearm, hardly anyone speaks hardly. Norse about the parallel to Germany Cup Olympic qualification of women in Fussed. The deb plagues with internal quarrels and structural questions that could endanger the upswing.
Söderholm s contract runs after the World Cup in his homeland. There are talks with sports director Christian Kuwait. But whether the 43-year-old extends his contract, is unclear. We have already talked about October and agreed that we talk again in Germany Cup. We have no pressure and standing before an intense season, Kuwait said.
In fact, the DEB wants to prolong. The development under Söderholm went back up after the end of storm in the NHL after winning Olympia Silver 2018. Under the Finn, the German men s team internationally significantly more successful than in the same period about footballers or handballers — some time ago unthinkable. Toni is a super-national coach, Deb President Franz Randy said the German Press Agency. Everything has happened as well as we hoped for.
Söderholm and the NHL dream: For everything open
But Söderholm adores itself. On the one hand because of personal ambitions to create it as a coach into the NHL. Randy finds this legitimate and enabled the national coach to recently a hospitalizes at the Florida Panthers, who delighted Söderholm. Now a commitment in the best league in the world may be too early, but the national coach is always in demand.
I m open to everything, said the trusted and can also introduce a future to the DEB: I definitely interested. But one swinging with. And that is due to the insecure future of the debut. In the association is the most important thing that the sport remains number one, Södertholm said clearly.
He therefore sees this in danger. On the one hand for internal quarrels. For months, several national associations has been resisting the payment of the voluntary payment of the voluntary Deb President Pure DL for years on his employment as managing director of a Deb subsidiary, which has organized and processed in the past World Cup aerial tournament.
Randy as a coffin on the scales?
Critics reject Randy that this company was financially alive by the rights agency in front. So from that agency, with which Randy is regularly negotiating via TV contracts for the national team. Internally, the criticism is rejected in a correspondence of Reindl-faithful relatively brush. More much more placed, Randy itself officially speaks of an independent legal opinion to the case that is still standing out.
Sup plights nerves sporty people. Added to this is the unexplained question as it continues at the top of the DEB. Actually, the soon 67-year-old Randy 2022 wanted to compete anymore at the regular presidium choice. A successor was not in sight so far. After his failed candidacy around the Chairman of the World Association IIF, however, a rethinking takes place.
According to DPA information, Randy wants to continue. Currently there is no room for it. I have no time to worry about it, Randy said officially. Many people ask me if it would not be better to continue. Söderholm is probably one of them.
