World champion, European champion, four-time German champion, German cup winner and two-time Uefa Cup winner!
So could introduce Wolfgang Kleff (74). But the Borussia legend is much more than just a walking trophy cabinet that identifies itself through its past.
And from next week he even has a new job: Kleff becomes a columnist at BILD, writes about current affairs at his Borussia!
The ex-goalkeeper (421 games for Gladbach) was then as today as a personality who doesn’t mince his words and is closely rooted with Mönchengladbach.
Klartext-Kleff: “I almost want to apologize in advance, but I will always give my opinion straight ahead!”
Of course, Kleff wants to focus on the sport, but also on the development of the club and everything that goes with it.
The father of two has lived in the Lower Rhine for 49 years and is now following Borussia as a fan: “I am part of the Gladbach DNA and always try to judge with respect. I’m not in the cabin. “
About his relationship with the BILD newspaper, the icon says: “I always told reporters: ‘If I’m bad, you can write it. But don’t read anything into it if there’s nothing there. ‘ That always worked. “
The new column “Wolfgang klefft los” starts next week.
