Life as an active football player will come to an end one day, but I won’t let current trends influence me; I won’t quit playing at the age of only 30. I will play for as long as I can and if I turn 40 and are still successful with what I’m doing, I will keep playing. Of course I am already putting thought into the future. I can’t imagine to just sit around one day without having anything to do with my life.
I doubt that I will become a coach, something that many former player plan on doing, it’s not unlikely after all. But it’s nothing for me, it’s too theoretical. I think that I wouldn’t be able to just stand at the sidelines, being unable to take influence on a match myself.
What I want to do is helping children to see the sport in the same way I do: Football is a lot of fun, it’s a battle, the possibilty to have a fling, to make new friends, to get to know other countries, new worlds. Football is a chance for integration, to be a part of a team, to win, it’s a very own living philoshophy.
The academies in Poland have caught my interest, they want to help young talents to improve. But there’s also Bergheim, my home, and FC Köln. It’s important to me to move something in this club and I hope there will be a chance for me to do that one day.
