Germany is worried about Franz Beckenbauer’s physical condition, APA reports citing Italy 24.
In fact, the former captain and coach of the German national team has not been well for years and now his former player Lothar Matthaus revealed that it is getting worse and worse. “We wish him to be the old Beckenbauer again, full of energy – the former Inter midfielder told the German broadcaster Rtl. We wish him the best possible health. Let’s hope he gets better, he himself has always said that health is the most important thing in the world. At the moment he doesn’t have it. Is not very well. Let’s hope that the path can go the other way.”
