"We need players who take responsibility, not only for the playful, but also emotionally, players who drive the others and show that they absolutely want to win," said Vogts of the "Rheinische Post". One such player for him is Joshua Kimmich.
For Vogts, the Bayern professional can become one of the dominant German players in the next few years - like the record national player Lothar Matthias in his time. “If Kimmich stays healthy, he can be like Lothar, he can come very close to the role that Lothar played. In his way he reminds me of Lothar, who always wanted to usurp the game and wanted to lead a team - and who openly demanded that ”, Vogts continued.
