Coach: Dragoslav Stepanovic

Kick Off - - My Dream Team -

“Steppi” was my first coach at Ein­tra­cht Frank­furt. I re­mem­ber he al­ways said “Lebe geht weiter” (life goes on). He meant you needed to keep on go­ing, that you should never give up. There won’t al­ways be good days, as there are also bad days, but you just have to go on. This slo­gan has al­ways helped me through­out my ca­reer, par­tic­u­larly af­ter bad games. The coach gave me the con­fi­dence to keep do­ing what I liked most and that helped me to de­velop into a world-class player. He made me a star on the big­gest stage and was an in­spi­ra­tion to me as a young guy. I’m very ap­pre­cia­tive of what he did for me and I’m al­ways happy to see him.
