The Volkswagen employees were proud to have the national team players at their workplace. It was even something of a return visit, since many of them had seen the players at their own “workplace” just two days earlier at the Volkswagen Arena for the game against Serbia (1:1).
“This visit from the national team players has to be the highlight of the 16 years I’ve been with Volkswagen,” muses Lutz Krause-Fiedler, who installs insulation panels in the bodywork in Hall 10.
His colleague, Huda Keßler, went in for a hug with forward Leroy Sané, saying, “My heart is still pounding. It was all very exciting!”
German Football Association Director Oliver Bierhoff expressed his thanks for the visit to the heart of the plant, saying, “It’s a pleasure for us to be able to get to know our partner better, and we are so grateful for the warm reception we received from the Volkswagen team.”
DFB-Direktor Oliver Bierhoff bedankte sich für den Besuch im Herzen des Werks: „Wir freuen uns, unseren Partner besser kennenzulernen. Der Empfang der Volkswagen Mannschaft war sehr herzlich.“
