German Boss Loew Reveals Dreams And FearsPosted: July 7, 2008
In his first interview since Germany’s defeat at the hands of Spain, Loew said: “I have a recurring dream where I turn into a pretty French woman with small breasts”.
The one time assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann continued. “In it I am in a darkened nightclub in downtown Paris wearing a tight black and white striped T shirt and beret, with a smear of bright red across my lips. My hair is bobbed and I am smoking Gitanes and reading poetry of Baudelaire. I can feel mein hands caressing the stockings on mein legs. I can hear music, the rhythms of passion. It is Thomas Hitzlsperger on some bongos. And then I dance. I dance like a wild cat, like I had never danced before. Then I awake and I am drenched…”
Loew appears to be blaming the dreams for Germany’s failure in the Euro 2008 final, adding “It is trouble for me. I could not concentrate on tactics because all I wanted was to shop in Vienna for lingerie.”
Loew says he has reached a compromise with the German FA for the upcoming World Cup qualifying campaign and he will be allowed to wear fishnets under his trousers. He says, “It is a compromise but je ne regrette rien.”
