Just a few hours after VfL’s UEFA Champions League opener in Lille, the next highlight was just around the corner for Maximilian Arnold. After six VfL Women’s players and the sprinter Deniz Almas were all honoured for their participation at this year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, Arnold completed the ceremony by adding his signature.
“It’s always special to be allowed to write your name in the city’s Golden Book”
“It’s always special to be allowed to write your name in the city’s Golden Book,” said Arnold. “I did it after we won the DFB Cup, too. In sporting terms, I’d hoped for more at the Olympics, but this event still means a lot to me.” The City of Wolfsburg had shown its appreciation of Arnold and his teammates in this manner after their DFB Cup triumph in 2015.
