"The task of working with the national team will be a big challenge for me," said Schneider. "I feel honoured that the DFB and Joachim Löw have put their faith in me. I’m delighted to be able to work for German football in this role. I know Joachim Löw from my time as a player at Stuttgart. Even back then I noticed that we think about football in a similar way and we’ve kept in touch over the years. I’m sure we’ll complement each other very well and will work well together. The same goes for Oliver Bierhoff and Andreas Köpke."Thomas's most famous (or should that be notorious) moment at Stuttgart involving his coach, however, could be said to be the shaving off of his coach's hair following the DFB-Pokal win in 1997!
