  • 2004, Juergen Klinsmann picked Loew (unknown) as assistant Germany World Cup team
  • 2006, Germany finishes 3rd in World Cup, Klinsmann retires, Loew named successor
  • Maybe he is so popular because we know so little about him. Even after almost two years as the Germany coach, the nation knows nothing about Joachim Loew's political leanings. He gives only vague answers about the books he reads, what music he listens to. Added to that, his wife, a teacher, wants to maintain her privacy and hardly ever accompanies him in public.

star players
Star Players
  • Michael Ballack (FC Chelsea) The captain, the leader, and Loew’s right hand man on the field. Ballack is the player who enjoys the most respect in the national team – also from his opponents as well. He is great in the air and good at set pieces, he is always ready to score the most important goal of the match.
  • Miroslav Klose (Bayern Munich) Klose is still an important player for the national team. The winner of the Golden Shoe in the 2006 World Cup, he has played 93 games and scored 48 times. He could earn his 100th cap for Germany is South Africa.
  • Mesut Oezil (Werder Bremen) The Werder Bremen midfielder may not be the star man on his team just yet but he has the potential to be a future great. He is the creative force in the German midfield and great things are expected of him in South Africa.

PRAISE of the Incomplete Leader

Only when leaders come to see themselves as incomplete, will they be able to make up for their missing skills by relying on others
