The German coach Michael Boris, who has been working in Hungary for years, sees the German national football team facing a difficult task in the Nations League game on Friday (8:45 p.m. / ZDF) against the selection of his adopted country.

    “Something has happened in Hungarian football, so it will be difficult to do something against this bulwark against the ball,” said the coach of the first division team Fehérvár FC of the German Press Agency.

    National coach Marco Rossi “not only formed a team, he also managed to spark a great team spirit,” explained Boris.

    “The German team has to be prepared. Hungary will certainly not have the ball that much, but they are incredibly good at switching games,” said the native of Bottrop, who recently met 1. FC Köln with Fehérvár in the playoffs for the Conference League ( 2: 1, 0: 3): “The players know what they’re doing, how to defend and they play with a lot of heart, especially at home. Otherwise you won’t win twice against England and you won’t draw against Germany.”

    The 47-year-old coached the U19 and then the U21 national team in Hungary from 2016 to 2019. He then took over MTK Budapest for two years, which he led to promotion to the first division. He has been a coach in Fehérvár since February.

    He knows many players from the Hungarian squad from personal collaboration. Loïc Nego and Attila Fiola are currently playing under him in Fehérvár. His ex-players in the junior teams include Leipzig’s Dominik Szoboszlai and András Schäfer from 1. FC Union Berlin.
