Hansi Flick rewarded Niclas Füllkrug’s incredible form with a call-up to the World Cup squad and the striker shared his emotions with the media on Thursday.
Niclas Füllkrug was overwhelmed with joy to earn a spot in Germany’s World Cup squad, which was best seen during teammate Leonardo Bittencourt’s sensational Instagram video. Werder’s no. 9 spoke to the media on Thursday:
“I thanked the boys for their support and for what they made possible. Because the successful time we are experiencing together is why I have now made it.”
Adding, “A World Cup is the greatest thing you can experience as a footballer. But it is an award that affects not only me, but the whole team and the whole club.”
Füllkrug finally waxed lyricals about manager Ole Werner’s tactics that have allowed him to thrive back in the top flight:
“It would not have been possible if we did not play such offensive football as promoters.”
