There is a big day ahead for VfL Wolfsburg. In the morning, the German league title will be on the line in Bielefeld, with the Green-and-Whites’ B Junior Team playing in the final for the first ever time (kick-off: 11:00 CEST). The only member of the current first-team squad to have lifted that particular trophy is Yannick Gerhardt, who tasted victory back in 2011 with 1. FC Köln. In this interview, the VfL midfielder cast his mind back over a decade to that final before looking ahead to his own match that evening against Bayer Leverkusen at the Volkswagen Arena.
Yannick Gerhardt, our U17 team is on the cusp of greatness, having made it through to the final of the German B Junior championship. Have you been following their progress?
Yannick Gerhardt: “Of course I have! We’ve been getting nothing but positive feedback about our B-Juniors throughout the season and that gets you thinking back to your own time at that level.”
