Joachim Low issues ‘sex ban’ to Germany stars at World Cup 2018

Joachim Low has banned his Germany stars from having sex during this summer’s World Cup.

German boss Low doesn’t want WAGs ruining his preparations in Russia, with players forced to ask for special permission to see their other halves and even their children during the build-up to the competition but they will be banned from contact during the tournament.

Social media will also be prohibited for the likes of Mesut Ozil, Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller and Marco Reus.

But hardliner Low will allow the holders to booze to help boost team spirits, according to Gazetta dello Sport, with the boss insisting: "The team is more important than the ego."

Germany have started their preparations for the World Cup by training in South Tyrol, in north east Italy this week.

Manuel Neuer is fighting for fitness ahead of the tournament after only managing four appearances for Bayern Munich last season due to a metatarsal injury.

Neuer has been involved in session with Bernd Leno, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Kevin Trapp and is battling the trio for three goalkeeper places on the plane.

"I’m in good shape," Neuer, who will play 45 minutes next week, said after training.

"I think the coaches are very happy, the fitness coaches, too. They’ve got me in great condition. I’m not holding back, that’d be bad advice for a goalkeeper."

They open their friendlies with a clash with Austria on Saturday before taking on Saudi Arabia a week on Friday.

Germany are in Group F with Mexico, South Korea and Sweden – getting their campaign off and running against the Mexicans on June 17.
