Other information
FOOTBALL
He made his debut for the German national team for footballers with cerebral palsy in 2014 before becoming the coach of team in 2017. "I often tell people to listen and imagine what it would be like for you to play football and not be able to properly move a leg or arm. This is a high performance these guys offer, many of which play in their clubs against non-impaired players. As long as the team exists, I will always stay connected to the German CP national team. I've been there since the beginning, since 2014, playing the first game and scoring the first goal." (idowa.de, 28 Sep 2017; mittelbayerische.de, 06 Jul 2019)
