Germany coach Joachim Loew vows to change driving behaviour after losing license for speeding

  • Print

BERLIN - Germany coach Joachim Loew has had to hand in his driving license for repeated speeding offences.

Loew says through the German football federation "of course I admit that I sometimes drove too fast, unfortunately." He adds that he needs to restrain himself and "will change my driving behaviour."

The federation did not give the length of the ban, which mass circulation daily Bild said was at least six months after running up 18 penalty points.

Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff joked with German media that main sponsor Mercedes will be asked to provide Loew only with speed-restricted cars from now on.
