On Twitter, TV viewers are furious. Especially after the elimination of the national team at the EM 2021 against England in the round of 16, there was criticism. Jogi Löw answered questions from Jessy Wellmer and Bastian Schweinsteiger shortly after the game had ended.

After Wellmer and Schweinsteiger were repeatedly criticized on social media, ARD was even forced to comment. ARD sports coordinator Axel Balkausky defended the duo: “Jessy Wellmer and Bastian Schweinsteiger managed to treat Joachim Löw with respect without being uncritical about the situation.
