ERASMIA - Germany coach
Joachim Low will continue to wear his trademark blue sweater at
matches and won't have it cleaned while his team keep winning.
He claimed on Monday he was not superstitious but admitted
that pressure from other coaching staff and players to keep
wearing his familiar sweater had paid off ahead of their World
Cup semi-final clash against Spain in Dutrban on Wednesday.
"The thing with the sweater is that I am not driven by
superstition," a smiling Low told reporters. "The other
coaching staff said I should be wearing the sweater now because
every time I wear it we score four goals."
Germany beat England 4-1 in the second round and reached the
semi-finals following a 4-0 demolition of Argentina, with Low
donning the V-necked garment each time.
"I am not even allowed to wash it now and I think I will
wear it again (against Spain)," he said.
Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger also hoped to see
his coach wearing it at Durban Stadium.
"I do not know how many sweaters he has that are blue. But I
hope he has the one or two left in his suitcase," he said.
