The German basketball players had to struggle during their World Cup success due to distraction from the DFB team. Moritz Wagner appears annoyed.
The dominance of football in Germany is causing problems for world champion Moritz Wagner. “I was annoyed that I had to answer Hansi Flick questions after landing in Frankfurt, even though we basketball players had just won the World Cup,” said the NBA professional from the Orlando Magic in an interview with “Zeit”.
The fact that football is currently struggling while his sport is at the top does not mean anything for the future. “I believe there have to be bad times so that the good times come and then you can appreciate them,” said the Berliner.
After all, German basketball was “on a very bad track” ten years ago, “now we are world champions.”
German basketball idol Dirk Nowitzki was one of the first to contact Wagner after winning the gold medal. “He actually wrote to me very emotionally, one message after the other, he was completely in ecstasy,” said the 26-year-old: “We don’t really know anything about him.”
