The coronavirus crisis does not seem to have affected the Mannschaft's economy too much. As confirmed yesterday by the general manager Oliver Bierhoff at a press conference, the German federation would have agreed with the squad a bonus of 400,000 euros per player in the event that Germany is proclaimed European champion, a figure that has sown outrage in society German since it considers that amount exorbitant, which represents a record for the Mannschaft.

Bierhoff himself, visibly upset when asked about the almost half a million euros for each player, which would be equivalent to just over ten million euros for the entire squad, did not want to enter into controversy. "Yes, it is a high amount", were his words to the media. "But I would love to be able to pay it to our players when the Euro Cup ends," added the former striker who scored the golden goal that the Euro Cup gave to the Germans in 1996.

The reason for anger in much of German society is the relationship with previous cousins. If they won the 2018 World Cup (they fell in the group stage), each member of the Mannschaft would have received a total of 350,000 euros. To be proclaimed European champion in 2016 (she fell in the semis) would have been awarded 300,000 euros per footballer. Five years later and in the midst of crisis, the federation has decided to increase the premium by 33 percent.
