I criticised Ballack for his unprofessional conduct earlier this week so it’s only fair to praise the man for being a man and apologising to his manager for his words.
“I will sit down with Joachim Loew as soon as my injury permits and apologise for my behaviour.”
“I’ve noted Ballack’s explanation, but much more important is our private discussion.”
Indeed. If Ballack wants to call Loew a cunt in private, good for them, but as captain and manager of Germany they should keep their disagreements private.
