HUTH IS DISAPPOINTED
Stoke city defender Robert Huth has said that he is not disappointed to miss out on the Germany squad for the Euro 2012. He has also dismissed suggestions that playing in the Premier league has reduced his chances of making it into the international squad. Robert Huth has had an excellent season for Stoke city, but failed to make it into the final 23 man squad for the Euro 2012 picked by Joachim Loew. A number of players who have suffered a poor run of form in recent seasons have been picked ahead of Robert Huth.
However, the defender has said that he is certainly not worried about the prospect of being at Poland and Ukraine the summer. The defender has been linked with a move away from Stoke city. He has only one year left on his current contract and the negotiations over the possibility of a new deal have stalled. As a result, it is expected that Stoke city might be willing to listen to offers for the player rather than lose him for nothing next summer. Stoke city manager Tony Pulis, though, ruled out any possibility of Robert Huth leaving the club this summer because he sees the German as one of the crucial members of the squad.
“The only reason [I wasn’t selected] is that [national team coach Joachin] Low likes other players, of whom he thinks they would be more helpful for him. It doesn’t matter of you play in England, Spain or anywhere else. He has his type of players, with whom he also has success. That I’m here has never played a role. I didn’t see any chance at all [for me to be called up]. You know how Twitter works, you want to entertain there. I didn’t expect to be nominated. I haven’t been part of the squad for three years,” said Robert Huth.
