“Back to the roots? I have learned that: you never should never say,” he said in the interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”. Already two years ago he said, “I’ll do something crazy and become president with the kickers.”
From 1977 to 1980, Völler had played at the then second division from Offenbach, there was his debut for the kickers at the age of 17. The World Champion of 1990, born in Hessian Hanau, listens in the summer as Managing Director of Rudi Völler in Leverkusen and will first remain active in the Supervisory Board.
From the foremost row, he wants to retire for the time being: “Let’s see. I’m 62, first the job is a good solution here.” In the free time, Völler is looking forward to seeing much more football. “For me this is really a dream, a pleasure. Sometimes I overperate a bit when I look at two games at the same time, but what should I do? I’ll take a football.”
