You signed for FC 08 Homburg is 2019. How are you enjoying your time at the club and what would you say is the main strength of this FC 08 Homburg team?
I am very happy at Homburg, we have a great team and we all get along perfectly. On the other side, I am not happy with many results in the first half of the season. Our main strength is in my opinion, that we have a lot of talented players in the team and great individual players also. The squad is well balanced. If one cannot play, there is no loss of quality.
You played one season for Eintracht Frankfurt II. How do you look back and reflect on that season?
It was a nice time at a great club. Sadly I had some injuries and the team got cancelled at the end of season, so we all had to leave
You played four seasons for Waldhof Mannheim. How do you look back on your time at the club and do you have any special memories or highlights
It was the greatest time of my football career so far. There were a lot of highlights with 3 times in the relegation-mode and the biggest highlight of course the last season with the ascent in the 3. League and the qualification to the DFB-Pokal.
You have a lot of experience in Germany football. Could you say who are among the best players you have played with so far in your career?
There were many players so far… Michael Fink and Hanno Balitsch were great players, from whom I learned a lot. Philipp Förster, Marco Meyerhöfer are two players, who play now in the 2. division and I hope to see them in the 1. division one day.
You are a midfielder Jannik. Could you say who are the most difficult opponents you have faced so far in your career?
That’s hard to say, but I think it was in a friendly match with Offenbach against Bayer Leverkusen. I played against Dani Carvajal, who is one of the best outside rights in the world. I hated also to play against my friends Marco Müller and Sascha Korb, because they were very aggressive players.
Finally Jannik, Could you say who are the coaches and managers that have played a key role in your development as a professional footballer?
Personally, I think I learned a lot from my coach at TS Ober-Roden at the age of about 12 until 18. His name is Bastian Neumann. He taught me a lot. In the senior football, Kenan Kocak taught me a lot of tactics. But, you live and learn, and so every coach brought and brings me a step forward.
