Why, for example, does Borussia Dortmund only care about men, but not about women's football? Almuth Schult can not understand it. In an interview, the German national goalkeeper accuses the clubs. "I think the clubs are unaware of the potential there is."
The German national goalkeeper Almuth Schult can not and does not want to understand that some traditional clubs refuse to accept women's football. "I think that if Dortmund would offer a trial training to start a women's team, hundreds would report within a few weeks," Schult told the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" in an interview. "I know national team players who say that if BVB founds a women's team, I want to wear this jersey and I think the clubs are not aware of the potential." "What you hear so often are excuses for me." (Photo: imago images / foto2press) The alleged arguments against a professional women's football department, as they entertain, for example, Bayern, her VfL Wolfsburg and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, are "excuses, if you see how much money from many Bundesliga in the infrastructure is set, "said the 28-year-old, who will stand on the grass in the final of the DFB team this Saturday (from 18.30 clock at Eurosport) in front of 90,000 spectators at the London Wembley Stadium against England after their injury break.Without the big clubs, "who polarize and take the fans, it will not work," Schult said. "It would help if clubs show interest everywhere and not immediately a stop sign is extended." Although she also feels a "spirit of optimism" at the DFB, "maybe footballers will naturally be part of it in a couple of decades, but what people often hear are excuses for me, and that makes me sad because we footballers clearly notice that we are not wanted ".
