Daily Schmankerl: Germany Loses Nickname Die Mannschaft; Chelsea and RB Leipzig consider Timo Werner-Joško Gvardiol swap?; Thomas Müller’s favorite EPL team; Roy Keane speaks Sadio Mané/Darwin Núñez; and more!

Bayern Munich’s German contingent will likely be known by a different moniker this winter during the World Cup. It’s true, Die Mannschaft is dead – or at least is dying:

The German Football Association (DFB) will no longer actively promote its men’s national team with the marketing name “Die Mannschaft” in the future. This was unanimously agreed at a supervisory board and shareholder meeting in Frankfurt.

The decision was based on an analysis of the brand used since 2015, which shows a recent increase in interest in the team and greater satisfaction with their appearances, as well as growing popularity for “Die Mannschaft “. However, the attitude towards the continued use of the name in particular was not uniform.

Alexander Wehrle, Chairman of the DFB Supervisory Board, gave an overview of the decision.

‘We analyzed the brand name’Die Mannschaft‘ and discussed it at length. Opinions differ not only among the fans, but also within the DFB. It’s a clear sign of the polarization of a name that everyone is supposed to rally behind,” Wehrle said. “Hansi Flick’s team is for everyone, and everyone can call it what they want. After all, it’s not so much the name of the team that matters, but what’s in it. And that’s where we agree: we have an inspiring national team with lots of potential and fascinating characters.

So what do you say… are you pro “Schaft” or anti “Schaft”?

That’s the name of the game, people are moving forward, you have strikers coming in, a young striker, hungry, you saw him there,” Keane told ITV. “That’s the name of the game Club recruitment great start for striker gives them options, when you see these teams the hunger and desire of both teams is fantastic It was a good day for Liverpool New striker , good habits to win, other teams might be sitting watching this thinking will these teams calm down Not with Pep [Guardiola] and [Jurgen] Klopp in charge, hunger and desire for both teams.
