Germany’s coach, Julian Nagelsmann, said on Friday that his team was ready to “feel the emotion in the stands” before their friendly match with Turkey in Berlin on Saturday.
Early on Friday, Vincenzo Montella, the coach of Turkey, said that his team could expect a “extraordinary atmosphere, as if we were playing at home.”
“There are a lot of Turks living here and we want to make them proud.”
About three million people with Turkish roots or descent live in Germany. This is the biggest Turkish group outside of Turkey, and many of them live in Berlin.
There will likely be 70,000 people at the game, and up to half of them may be pulling for the other team.
They said, “We’re looking forward to experiencing both groups of fans.”
“We know tomorrow will be loud. Fans from Turkey and Germany will cheer loudly and make a lot of noise.
He said, “Tomorrow it will be pretty loud.” Leroy Sane is a German winger. “I got to know that pretty well in Istanbul but also in Munich.”
In the last few weeks, Bayern played Turkish team Galatasaray in the Champions League, both at home and away. Some said that the away match in Munich felt like a home game for the guests.
“They’ll be travelling with us, but we also have a lot of fans here in Germany…” “There will be a good vibe,” the 27-year-old said.
Ilkay Gundogan is the first Turkish-German to lead Germany. He has never played against the country of his parents and grandparents in an international match.
The manager said, “Of course it’s a special game (for him).” The man is excited about it. He’s calm and doesn’t seem scared.
Their game against Turkey will take place in the same place where the Euro 2024 final will be held. He “hadn’t thought about it very much, but it sounds very nice” if Germany makes it to the final in Berlin in July 2024.
“Though it’s a long way to the end.” Tomorrow, we’ll try to take a small step.
As a result, Germany will host Euro 2024. Turkey, on the other hand, has already bought their ticket and is likely to win their group.
In September, Montella, an Italian, was hired as the new coach of Turkey after Stefan Kuntz, a German, was fired.
Montella, who is 49 years old, thought that Germany would win next year’s event.
Reporters were told by Montella on Friday that Germany had a “very good” team that could win the event.
“In order to be able to continue our preparations, it is important to show a good performance here.”
