BERLIN - Germany’s head coach Joachim Loew insisted Tuesday he has learnt his lesson after being banned from driving for six months. The 54-year-old must hand over his licence after accruing too many points for speeding and talking on his phone while at the wheel. “Of course, I stand by the fact that sometimes, unfortunately, I drive too fast. I know that I need to be reined in,” said Loew. “I have learnt my lesson and will change my driving behaviour. There’s no getting round it, I have to live with the consequences and I often use the train now.” Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff could not resist poking fun at Loew’s expense with car manufacturers Mercedes Benz being one of the team’s main sponsors. This is not first time Loew has lost his licence and he was banned for four weeks in 2006.–AFP
