sport news EURO 2020: Markus Babbel pins blame on Joachim Low for Germany's Euro 2020 exit

Markus Babbel says Germany lacked a 'Plan B' and that their former manager Joachim Low is to blame for their Euro 2020 exit.

Babbel, who won the European Championship in 1996, says he has been 'laughing [himself] to death' at Low's claim that Germany did not have enough squad depth.

Babbel believes Germany had the firepower to succeed in the tournament and that it was Low's wrongful deployment of Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane that cost them.

Germany crashed out of the tournament after suffering a 2-0 loss to England in their last 16 clash at Wembley. The result also put an end to Low's 15-year reign as Germany national team manager.

Former Liverpool defender, Babbel, has criticised Low for his tactics during the all-important clash and has refused to accept the idea that he lacked the squad depth to deploy his best players in their primary roles.

Speaking to Goal and SPOX, Babbel said: 'Insisting on three at the back without having a Plan B irritated me very much. It's always hard when players are not in their best position. Joshua Kimmich can play on the right, but in my opinion he radiated a high level of dissatisfaction. He wanted to play No.6.

'Nobody can tell me that you can't find a defender on the right. I'm laughing myself to death! It doesn't have to be a Cafu that constantly initiates every attack. Closing the side is enough and Matthias Ginter, Emre Can or Niklas Sule would certainly have managed it.
