The national coach praises: “He brings a very different note into play.” He continues: “He is open, honest and direct. With such characters we have no problems . ” June 2017: Wagner wears the eagle on his chest, is filled with pride.

November 2017: 5 goals in 3 qualifying matches for the DFB team. Wagner feels well in the circle of Germany’s best. About the national coach, he says in an interview with the “TZ”: “He likes me regardless of football as a type, because he likes it, if someone has his opinion and can properly represent the DFB wants to change anyone here I’m very thankful. ” “I would recommend it to him” March 2018: Wagner is now Bayern striker. The championship is just a matter of form, he still dreams of the Champions League title. Whether Löw has to take him for the world title, asks the “image”.
