But Yakin told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung: "There is absolutely no problem between us. We have an outstanding relationship and we exchange information regularly. Our names sell well in the media. We have to live with that, it's part of the game.

"We had a good conversation immediately after the game, nobody accused the other of anything."
