How important is a goalkeeper in football? This is the question that comes to mind for VfB coach Sebastian Hoeneß Hermann Gerland.
Stuttgart/Munich - It is clear that goalkeepers play a major role in football. At BW24 you can now find out why VfB coach Sebastian Hoeneß thinks of Hermann Gerland when he thinks of this question.
The two know each other from their time together at FC Bayern Munich and Hoeneß owes a lot to Gerland. In the meantime, the nephew of Uli Hoeneß is successful at VfB Stuttgart. The Swabians are third in the Bundesliga table after twelve matchdays and have won nine games so far. The other three were lost by Hoeneß's protégés. On Saturday (18:30 CEST/Sky), SV Werder Bremen visit VfB in the MHPArena as part of Matchday 13.
