Neuer: 'We've told the coach we'll turn this around'

Manuel Neuer doesn’t know if Germany’s players are feeling insecure but they have told the coach they are ready for the challenges of turning their situation around.

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer insisted his team were ready to turn around their poor form after another defeat on Saturday. Joachim Löw’s men suffered a 3-0 defeat to Holland in the Nations League, leaving them with just three wins from their past 12 matches.

Germany were stunningly eliminated in the group stage at the World Cup, but Löwsurvived. Neuer lamented his side’s missed chances against Holland and said the players had told the coach they were desperate to turn their fortunes around.

Chances not going in

“We created a fair few chances on goal. Our corners weren’t too good, however. We weren’t creating anything from them,” he said, via DFB.de. “We had enough chances to score one or two goals. Then we concede two late on, when we’re obviously very open. I don’t know if every single player is feeling insecure. That’s something every player needs to ask himself. We all made it clear to the head coach that we are ready for the challenge. When you lose that game, you obviously face a lot of criticism and people speak very negatively about the team. But [it] could have gone very differently, as you could see.”

France game looming

Germany face a huge test when they meet world champions France in the Nations League on Tuesday.
