No place in the World Cup squad: Arnold complains about the lack of a lobby
Maximilian Arnold complained again about not being part of the German World Cup squad. In the eyes of the Wolfsburg captain, his non-nomination could be related to VfL’s lack of charisma.
Maximilian Arnold has again complained about not being part of the German World Cup squad. In the eyes of the Wolfsburg captain, his non-nomination could be related to VfL’s lack of charisma.
“Maybe it’s actually the lack of a lobby. Maybe VfL Wolfsburg isn’t the right one associationwhen it comes to playing for the national team. Maybe other clubs are more in focus,” Arnold said Wolfsburg General Newspaper.
It is clear to him that players from Bavaria Munich would attract more attention. “But I don’t think I have to hide because I’ve also played in the Champions League and Europa League,” said the midfielder.
Shortly after the squad was announced, Arnold made no secret of his disappointment. He spoke to his own club media about being “very, very disappointed”. “I can’t blame myself for my performance. I think I could have added value for the national team,” said the 28-year-old. That’s why he also “needed some time to process the decision.”
Overall, the left foot comes to three A internationals. Most recently, he was in action for the DFB in the World Cup qualifier in November 2021. In addition to Arnold, national coach Hansi Flick had not nominated VfL professional Ridle Baku for the World Cup. Attacker Lukas Nmecha had to pass injured.
