Kessler's Wolfsburg player guide

VfL Wolfsburg captain Nadine Kessler talks UEFA.com through the champions' squad from the "crazy noodle" to the "busy bee", her "better half" and finally herself.

Almuth Schult, goalkeeper, Germany
She talks an incredible amount. But she's a good team player and very important for the team. The most communicative person I know, but her communication helps the team a lot.

Luisa Wensing, defender, Germany
'Crazy noodle'! Always in a good mood, always there to have fun, and very tough in duels.

Nilla Fischer, defender, Sweden
A top leader, great personality and extremely important for the team.

Josephine Henning, defender, Germany
Our machine. There is no one who has won more duels [in the team]; that's why she is essential.

Verena Faisst, defender, Germany
An incredible left foot, precise crosses and extremely quick.

Stephanie Bunte, defender, Germany
The good soul. The all-rounder. The nice one. She is very important for our team.

Noelle Maritz, defender, Switzerland
Young and green with an incredibly high potential and a promising future.

Zsanett Jakabfi, midfielder, Hungary
The attacking all-rounder with technical skills and speed like no other.

Viola Odebrecht, midfielder, Germany
Absolutely important for us on and off the pitch. She is there for everyone as a contact person and very important as a player on the pitch.

Anna Blässe, midfielder, Germany
No one is quicker than Anna Blässe.

Lena Goessling, midfielder, Germany
My better half [in central midfield]! She is essential as a player for the team, and an extremely good football player.

Alexandra Popp, forward, Germany
Alex Popp is the tower of strength. She is our target player up front; she scores the goals. Her confidence helps us progress.

Martina Müller, forward, Germany
The busy bee. She gives everything until the end and will do anything for the team. She gives her whole body and soul to the club.

Jovana Damnjanović, forward, Serbia
Extremely young, extremely talented and a great mindset. She is on the right track to becoming a very good player.

Nadine Kessler, midfielder, Germany
Captain … yes, that's difficult! I can't say anything – what am I, then? Anyone want to add anything? Well, a leader who fights and does everything for her team, and loves her club!

Nadine Kessler was talking to Markus Juchem.
