The ‘gigantic’ competition in Germany’s midfield means Brentford’s Vitaly Janelt won’t get a chance to be in the squad for Euro 2024, even if he is more than deserving of it.

That’s according to TZ, who cover the player to say and how despite him continuing to impress in the Premier League, he won’t be part of Julian Nagelsmann’s plans.

They explain that despite being a favourite at Brentford and a key player in them staying in the Premier League in recent years and helping to get there in the first place, he doesn’t have chance.

He’s been labelled as a ‘pressing machine’ at the club and praised for his intense approach and ‘game intelligence’, all attributes that should make him a strong contender for the German national side.

However, because of the ‘gigantic’ competition in central midfielder, he won’t be given his chance this summer.

Nagelsmann is focusing on names such as Toni Kroos, Pascal Groß, Robert Andrich and Ilkay Gündogan and could even move Joshua Kimmich from right-back if need be.

Thus, there’s no room for the Brentford star, even if his attributes would make him an ideal addition and he’s a proven Premier League quality player.

He’s not the only one being left out, with big names like Leon Goretzka and Bayern Munich rising star Aleksandar Pavlovic also unlikely to make the cut because of the competition for places.

TZ do argue that if Janelt ‘continues to deliver constantly’ for Brentford then there will be a point when he can’t be overlooked, either by Nagelsmann or a future Germany boss.

This summer, though, he’s out of the picture, even if his performances and skills really mean he shouldn’t be.
