If you look at the current title glut of VfL Wolfsburg in the women's football, then come memories of the best time of 1.FFC Frankfurt at you high?
Yes, because the Wolfsburg is set in just the one or other record of us at that time. I still feel Proud about the achievements. That we have taken with the FFC, a steep development, but over such a long period of time at the front were able to maintain. As a pure women's football club. We had some great games, great players and great celebrations.
you have achieved between 1999 and 2008, with the FFC the seven German League titles and Cup victories as well as three European Cup triumphs. There was a sense of invulnerability?
no, we have considered the successes and never as a matter of course. We have played, even if it is blurred in the back a bit, not always outstanding football with Wins. We stood with our star-studded teams, which are often competed as the defending champion, is definitely under pressure.
Can the Eintracht Frankfurt after the merger with FFC, the women's football top cheer?
I think so. Not in the short term, because it takes time and the appropriate squad. But on point of view, the harmony can't take any of the top clubs Wolfsburg and Bayern, for sure. First of all, probably more selective in knock-out Games in the Cup and in the direct duels in the championship. Because great art is constant, with hardly a slip, at a high level in the win.
And on the medium and long term?
There can be based the harmony on the third place with the entitled of the new season, for the participation in the Champions League, to the top. You must not forget that in Wolfsburg, outstanding work is done. You can make it there, the German top women's players and to attract and keep. The VfL from the top is to replace very difficult.FAZ.NET completely

What have you seen as many years of FFC protagonist, as at the end of June the club's history ended?
A bit of nostalgia there was. Although I consider the step over to the Concord as the only alternative. Because I have seen how increasingly difficult it has become, as a pure women's football club to play in future, a good role. How increasingly difficult it has become to create the professional framework, which license clubs just bring their own. You could have the fear that the FFC would be in the future, landed sporty in the no-man's land and financially, the burden would have eventually able to lift.
In terms of Budget is likely to settle peace in the new season just in the top third of the table.
until now, the fusion process personable and target-oriented. Since the Concord has, of course, had previously been a women's football Department with the third-League team. I hope that the will is apparent, this is a serious and legitimate address and have not only a decorative first-League women's team.Updated Date: 13 July 2020, 13:22
