Coach slaps sex ban on German players, allows alcohol at World Cup camp
Germany head coach Joachim Loew has slapped a sex ban on his players for the duration of the World Cup in Russia.
The German coach does not want WAGS (Wives And Girlfriends) near his players as they prepare to defend the tittle they won four years ago in Brazil.
The tournament kicks off in nine days.
Players who would wish to see their wives or children will have to seek for special permission from the coach and must have a concrete reason before such a request is permitted.
And it doesn’t end there.
Loew he has also banned the use of Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram or any form of social media during the tournament.
The hardliner coach will however allow alcohol consumption in the camp for players to refresh and boost their morale and team spirit.
According to Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sports, which claims to have spoken to Loew, the strict measures are because “the team is more important than the ego.”
