VfL has played 13 competitive games so far this season: Elvis Rexhbecaj (24) was always in the starting line-up.
All he has to do is learn to score goals. Rexhbecaj is Reis’ favorite.
The loaner from VfL Wolfsburg was at the top of the wish list of Bochum’s coach Thomas Reis (48).
Rexhbecaj: “The coach called me every week that he wanted me and believed in me. Just like managing director Schindzielorz. That burned itself into me. “
In the eighth position, the native Kosovar maloed with the German passport for VfL. He runs a lot, goes into every duel and always tries to pull the audience away with encouraging gestures.
If only there wasn’t one shortcoming. So far, Rexhbecaj has not scored a goal.
And with that, Reis teases him: “He’s always joking and says, how did they train you in Wolfsburg?” “
But that doesn’t bother Rexhbecaj that much: “I’m trying to keep going, to help the team. A goal would be nice for me personally. But if we keep winning and are successful, I don’t have to score a goal. “
And how did Rexhbecaj get his first name? “My parents just loved the name Elvis. Completely unrelated to Elvis Presley. Of course there is a saying about it in the cabin. But that’s okay. In my private life I don’t listen to any songs by Elvis! “
