After winning the title with Manchester City in the English Premier League, Ilkay Gündogan will only be late in the training camp of the national soccer team in Spain.
National coach Hansi Flick had already announced when he announced his 26-member squad for the upcoming Nation League games against European champion Italy, EM finalist England and Hungary that the 31-year-old Gündogan as an English champion only after the celebrations after the celebrations Marbella must come.
“If you should become City champions and they will make a celebration on Monday, Ilkay will only come on Tuesday,” said Flick. The rest of Captain Manuel Neuer travels in the course of Monday.
Gündogan led Manchester City to victory
Gündogan had largely shot Manchester City on Sunday with the Liverpool FC as a substitute with two goals after a 0-2 deficit to the decisive 3-2 home win against Aston Villa and thus led to the win of the English championship.
Flick goes to the training camp on the Costa del Sol, which is scheduled until Friday, in which the internationals can also bring their partners. In the morning, training is to be trained intensively, in the afternoon there is leisure time.
Flick has “world leaders in view”
Numerous players like the eight actors from FC Bayern have been free for a week and should not take a break before the start in Italy on June 4. That’s why Flick attached great importance to a training camp. “After two weeks to say freely, we meet four days before the Nations League games and then the players should suddenly call up performance, that would not be serious, that would not be professional,” the national coach explained his approach.
At the end of the season, it is the penultimate international phase before the immediate preparation for the World Cup, which started on November 21. Flick clearly formulates for the upcoming four games in the Nations League against Italy (June 4th and 14th) as well as England (June 7) and Hungary (June 11): “We already have the world tip in view and want everything to do so do that we are consistently going. “
