What differences have you been able to identify so far in pre-season?
Tabea: “All the basics are a bit more professional here, starting with the training times. It all makes a huge difference and I can feel it already. As a footballer you always want to play, so having so many games suits us nicely.”
As well as a new environment and new team-mates, a change of club often brings with it a new style of play. Where do you see yourself fitting into VfL’s system?
Tabea: “In general, I’m most comfortable on the wings. I prefer playing on the right flank.
What are your goals at VfL and what are your personal hopes for the new campaign?
Tabea: “I haven’t won that many titles in my career yet – every trophy would be a new one for me. I hope to win as many as possible though. Personally, I want to be given a lot of playing time, perform well and continue to improve.”
