Berlin (dpa) – 1. FC Union Berlin captain Christopher Trimmel dreams of his first major tournament participation with the Austrian national team, despite his relatively high footballer of 33 years.
“The big goal of the European Championship is still a long way off. It is of course a goal,” said Trimmel of the “Berliner Zeitung” and added to his current role at the Bundesliga club: “I have come closer. And that I have a can, maybe not a disadvantage for a tournament. Sometimes you have to improvise. So I’m very relaxed. “
However, the midfielder also knows that he is currently benefiting from the absence of many colleagues. “For years I was like the record-on-call standby as a national player. Even now up to 14 players are missing. Due to injury or Corona reasons,” stressed the veteran, who last played in the Nations League. . .
Even if a dream came true with the possible nomination for EM next year, Trimmel’s focus is clearly on Union. “First and foremost it is important that you perform in the club and stay healthy,” he said. In the Bundesliga, Berlin will face SC Freiburg on Saturday (3.30 pm / Sky).
