We conducted a short interview with Markus Kolke. He talks about the goalkeeper position, the best moments of his career and about his goalkeeper gloves.
Why did you become a goalkeeper?
Good question. I started as a striker in a small village, as it happens there aren not that many goalkeepers in the youth. Everyone had to go in goal at some point, and some day it was my turn. I liked it so much that I stayed in goal.
What is the best thing about being a goalkeeper?
Quite simply: saving balls.
What was the best moment in your career?
Recently, promotion to the second league with Hansa Rostock. But also the promotion with Waldorf Mannheim, that was my first promotion, both times it was incredibly emotional.
