27.03.2007: Denmark coach Olsen unhappy after Germany rest 8 stars

Denmark coach Morten Olsen has criticised Germany’s decision to field a severely weakened team for Wednesday’s friendly international in Duisburg.

Germany coach Joachim Loew released eight players from international duty, including captain Michael Ballack, after the 2-1 win over the Czech Republic in Prague on Saturday.

‘This is very disrespectful,’ Olsen was quoted as saying by German media on Tuesday. ‘We had a clear agreement to field our strongest teams. ‘I wasn’t told about it by the DFB (German Football Association). I read about it in the newspapers and you don’t do that.’

As well as Chelsea midfielder Ballack, the other players released by Loew were Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, Bayern Munich trio Philipp Lahm, Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger, Werder Bremen players Torsten Frings and Per Mertesacker and Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Schneider.
