Munich (ots)

Soccer player of the year in Germany and Austria, top scorer, but Nicole Billa dreams of the German championship – the title is not a dream: TSG Hoffenheim has 2 points against leaders Wolfsburg, only one against FC Bayern. At the start of the women’s Bundesliga against 1. FC Köln (live from 7 p.m.), the Tyrolean described her team as a “strong collective”. “We don’t have the outstanding kickers or names, so it’s important that we’re on the pitch as a team.” To get in the mood for the lion duel – TSV 1860 Munich against Eintracht Braunschweig live on Sunday from 12.45 p.m. – MagentaSport reporter Thomas Wagner literally spoke to Munich’s lion trainer Michael Köllner about God and the world. Köllner compares the Catholic Church with traditional clubs: “They think they’re still playing in the premier league, but that’s not the reality.” And talks about the dull autumn as a low point that was averted because he listened more to the team. One of the consequences: the separation from Sascha Mölders. Michael Köllner says about quitting: “If you realize you’re running out of answers or you’ve been at a loss for several days, then it’s time to go.” The 52-year-old from Upper Palatinate likes to explain: “I won’t let myself be bent!”

Below are excerpts from the interviews with Nicole Billa and Michael Köllner – if used, please name the source MagentaSport. Today, SC Freiburg II opens the 25th match day in the 3rd division against Viktoria Köln – live from 6.30 p.m. MagentaSport shows all games of the women’s soccer Bundesliga and the 3rd division live.

Thomas Wagner in an interview with Michael Köllner in the MagentaSport series “Wagner meets…”. With many strong impressions of the person Köllner about faith, attitude and goals. About the responsibility that you have to feel as a trainer and have to take consequences when things are no longer the case, says Köllner: “The professional team is the driving force, the machine that pulls the club. You know, there are many jobs for the employees. The fans, who actually die with the club, more or less, would also die because of your football game. Identity and identification are important values ​​for me. I also try to live them by staying the way I am. I am the young fellow who was born in Fuchsmühl, a small village in the Upper Palatinate. Who at some point was lucky enough to earn his money with football and to make it his calling. That’s why I don’t let myself be bent over backwards in the end: if it fits, that’s ok. And if not, mei – then it’s ok so. That’s why I won’t go to bed unhappy in the evening.”

“A cord is put around your neck without mercy”

Michael Köllner on success and goals: “You just do everything to achieve your goals. Those are not always your internal goals, sometimes they are external goals. Your players’ goals are for them to take the next step in their careers. For the club to achieve its goals – economically and sportingly. It’s closely linked. Also the feelings and expectations of the people who are rooting for it. That you fulfill that to a certain extent on the one hand. That you can plant a piece of purpose in life on the one hand. For me is more important: why are you here now in the end? Even if professional football is always a reckoning game day after game day. It’s always like this: a cord is mercilessly put around your neck. If you win, then it’s not pulled. If you lose, someone is pulling behind you. I believe that it is detached in the larger context. Your work in the club must have a different meaning, in my opinion. Of course I know that I am subordinate to professional sport am. That I have to do it justice with the results. But on the other hand, I also know that there is a bigger connection……….I’m happy that it’s going that way. But in the end I also know that this will never really bring satisfaction.”

After the severe bankruptcies in late autumn, especially the 2:5 against Magdeburg – 0:5 at halftime – Köllner then listened more to the team to find out what he had to change as a coach. “In the process, one or two points came to light, which I then take to heart. Without losing my authority, my straightforwardness.”

When Michael Köllner knows that his time at a club is over!

“If you realize you’re running out of answers or you’ve been at a loss for several days, then it’s time to go. But up until now, at sixty, I’ve always found a way, a right approach, like we did with the topic turn in the right direction.”

Eight years as a boy in the monastery: “That also shapes!”

“I will not forget that until the last day of my life, until the last minute. In the beginning you drift away from the faith, but you find support in certain things. It was a decision I made for myself when I was 10 years old, my father reminded me that it lasts until I’m 18. Of course that means: you have to pull something off, 8 years and you can’t escape from it. That also has an impact!”

“Where do you have to shut up in the end?”

About his Christian moral values ​​and the Köllnersche “guideline” – what good is that in the cabin? “Every person is searching for themselves: what is the meaning of life? Why am I on earth? You long for an answer to these 2 questions. I try to bring that into my work as well, without me proactively trying to hit the players with a hammer. You have to dose it so that it goes down well. Have a good sense of where you have to keep your mouth shut in the end? If you have a good feeling about it, then that’s it a huge added value for the players.”

What the Catholic Church and traditional clubs have in common

Michael Köllner and his relationship to the Catholic Church, which he compares to traditional football clubs: “They think they’re still playing in the premier league, but that’s not the reality.” When he goes to church, “I want to have solutions and not always feel guilty.”

Michael Köllner and his desire for alcohol and especially beer: “Oh, I used to be hard on the glass, but now I hardly drink alcohol at all.”

Nicole Billa: Sachertorte as a passion, the title: a dream

She is footballer of the year in Germany and Austria – who can say that about herself: Nicole Billa, goalscorer at TSG Hoffenheim – currently highly ambitious third in the FFBL. The 25-year-old goalscorer scored 23 goals last season, before the game against 1. FC Köln (live on MagentaSport from 7 p.m. today) there are 7 goals. The German championship lives on as a dream for Nicole Billa, but it’s not completely unrealistic either: 2 points to leaders Wolfsburg, only one to FC Bayern. The Tyrolean Billa describes the Hoffenheim selection in the MagentaSport interview as a “strong collective” with an outstanding attitude. “We don’t have the outstanding kickers or names, so it’s important that we’re on the pitch as a team.” Has worked extremely well this season.

She came to TSG 7 years ago because the club approved her as a second mainstay in addition to training as a teacher. Nicole Billa also successfully practiced kickboxing in her youth, then decided to play soccer. Her sweet passion: Sachertorte, which is always given for birthdays – “I always have the biggest piece!” The German championship would still be such a highlight for Nicole Billa.
