Lothar Matthäus has taken on a new coaching job. The record national player is now on the sidelines with the E-Youth of TSV Grünwald. The 61-year-old confirmed this sky.
“They didn’t have a coach because their coach left. Then I agreed to take on the big responsibility for the little boys,” said the former Bayern star about his new team, in which his son also plays.
At international level, Matthäus coached the Bulgarian national team until 2011, before that he also coached Maccabi Netanya, Hungary, Partizan Belgrade and Rapid Vienna.
However, his new task presents Matthew with very special challenges. “Tying your shoes is always the key,” Matthew explained. “Most people can’t tie their shoes by the age of 8, 9, 10.” In the first game on Saturday, which his team won 8-2, he also tied the shoes of his protégés. “But I told the mothers to teach their children to tie shoes. I could do it when I was 5 or 6.”
The players are well aware of who is training them. “We’re having fun, I’m having fun too,” emphasized Matthäus.
