Völler raves about Schick, Seoane and the team

"We would actually have to send the Romans a picture," joked Völler with Schick, whom Bayer had won for 26.5 million euros from AS Rome - and who had now paid back in Sinsheim with two goals and an assist.

But Völler and Schick refrained from greeting the eternal city, in which the Czech had never found his sporting happiness, since he was never asked behind an Edin Dzeko as a center forward, but only off his ideal position. The Czech in the storm center, where it can act at Bayer, is significantly the strongest. "He is a classic center forward," says Völler, "and he is also served wonderfully with us."

"3rd place is also important. Three weeks ago, even the Champions League was in danger after our defeat against Leipzig. We got back great," says the 62-year-old.

Völler is not only pleased, but also the way that came about. "It was also wonderful goals like from the textbook," he not only enthuses about Bayer's offensive game at 1899, "we scored ten goals in the last three games. And I was not even aware that we set up a club record with 78 goals shot have - that only shows the wonderful football we played this season. "

Schick was always Völler's desired striker

"I am particularly pleased with Patrik because I fought for him for a long time in previous years. He was always my desired striker."

Had invested a lot of persuasion in his obligation by the managing director. "I always had contact with the AS Rome, even before Patrik came to us via the detour Leipzig. Because I knew he was a wonderful center forward. He can stop."

As the rental base for RB Leipzig, which is active in the 2019/2020 season, showed again on Saturday. Völler made 1: 1 to rave 1: 1 after the flank of Moussa Diaby.
