Together with Frank Witter, Chief Financial and IT Officer, the Volkswagen CEO welcomed the VfL Wolfsburg women’s soccer team and congratulated them on winning the DFB Cup and the German Championship. "We’re incredibly proud of you," said Diess, praising the two-time winners. "You convey such a sympathetic image of Volkswagen to the world." Not much was missing and the "she-wolves" would have even won a third title: in the final game of the Champions League, the
women of Wolfsburg lost to Olympique Lyon after a real fight.
