Frankfurt

National team: Germany (retired)

Which coach most inspired you? My youth coach, as she was successful in giving me fascination about football.

What was the best advice they gave you? A good team isn't built on the best individual players, but the team, in which each player can perfectly use her abilities. The common goal is more important than individual success.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? A club in a small village, where football has always played an important role.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? To have fun playing football is always the most important thing and should always be the biggest motivation.
