Alexander Esswein speaking to the club website said: “VfB Stuttgart is a big club with a lot of tradition and a great fan base. That’s why I’m so happy to be here from now on. I’m really looking forward to the new task and will do my best to help VfB. “
On the connection with Stuttgart and VfB?
“I am originally from the southwest. Stuttgart is only a good hour away from my homeland, of course, VfB is well known to me. In addition, I also know one or the other player from earlier stations.
” I have already played together with Daniel Didavi in Nuremberg. We always got on well, and after that, I visited him a few times in Stuttgart. I played with Christian Gentner in Wolfsburg. And of course, I still know Erik Thommy and Halil Altintop as players from the Augsburg era. “
On Markus Weinzierl coaching him at Augsburg
“We have already worked together in Augsburg and had a very successful time there, in which we played together in the Europa League. I want to build on the good cooperation with him here at VfB”.
“If the coach knows the player well and the player knows how the coach is ticking, then this can only be beneficial for both sides. Of course, that was another reason why I chose VfB. “
