Didavi: … I almost laughed!

Didavi: ... I almost laughed!

When Daniel Didavi suffered his knee injury, things weren't looking so bad at VfL Wolfsburg. After three games, the "Wolves" were undefeated in the Bundesliga and had five points under their belt. But then came the game against Dortmund. VfL not only lost 1:5, but with Didavi also lost its most creative and dangerous player, because he once again had to have knee surgery. Since then, only one (!) counter added.

The diagnosis: Torn meniscus, several weeks break. And Didavi? The was not shocked because of the renewed failure. "This was no big deal now. When the doctors said that I would be able to train again in four or five weeks, I almost laughed. I've experienced so much in the meantime, almost nothing can shock me anymore."

Because no injury can throw the 26-year-old off track so quickly. The memories of missing almost two years of work in Stuttgart because of cartilage damage are too strong for him. "That was clearly harder for me," he says therefore.

Verdict against nsu perpetrator beate zschape is legally binding

The verdict against the right-wing terrorist Beate Zschape as an accomplice of the neo-Nazi terror cell "National Socialist Underground" (NSU) is legally binding. The Federal Court of Justice (BGH) has rejected her appeal and only cancelled a single sentence, the court in Karlsruhe announced. "However, the total life sentence and the established special severity of guilt have remained unaffected by this." Accordingly, the sentences against the NSU supporters are also Ralf Wohlleben and Holger G. legally binding.

For almost 14 years, Zschape lived with her friends Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Bohnhardt underground. During that time, the men murdered eight small business owners of Turkish origin and one of Greek origin, as well as a policewoman. In 2011, they took their own lives to avoid imminent arrest. Zschape set fire to the apartment they shared, sent out a confession video and turned herself in.

Also about Andre E. Wants the court to decide soon

The mammoth trial surrounding the murders and attacks by the neo-Nazi terror cell NSU ended on 11. July 2018 after more than five years and over 400 days of hearings. The Munich Higher Regional Court (OLG) sentenced Zschape, the sole survivor of the trio, as Co-defendant to life imprisonment – even if there is no proof that she herself was at one of the crime scenes. In addition, the judges determined the particular seriousness of the guilt.

The new vfl: starting signal this winter?

The new vfl: starting signal this winter?

VfL Wolfsburg will face some changes in the coming months and years. No final decision has yet been made at club owner Volkswagen, but there are many indications that the Bundesliga soccer club is being prescribed a new strategy from above. If the hardliners in the Group, who are said to include VW brand boss Herbert Diess, get their way, savings of a good 30 percent are within the realm of possibility. With an estimated VW investment of 100 million euros a year, that would be more than 30 million less.

At the automaker is discussed to rely in the future more on own talents and less on expensive million purchases. The objective should be based on the available player material – and no longer the other way around as before. In the course of this change of heart, savings will of course also be made. How much is at stake is the subject of current discussions.

VfL's biggest advocate with the owner is Francisco Javier Garcia Sanz, the head of the Bundesliga club's supervisory board, who also sits on the carmaker's corporate board of directors. But at a time when Volkswagen is having to pay billions in fines as a result of the emissions scandal and is planning to cut 30,000 jobs over the next few years, it's difficult for a Bundesliga club to make million-dollar payments at the current rate. Especially if the latter does not meet the high demands.

Annette goslar: candidate for wolfenbutteler of the year 2019

Annette goslar: candidate for wolfenbutteler of the year 2019

Annette Goslar is a doer. In the truest sense of the word – because the 58-year-old is a trained children's museum maker and volunteer director of the Aha-Erlebnismuseum on Lindener Strabe. Here, children, young people and adults should understand the world with all their senses, learn, laugh and research.

Annette Goslar had the idea of opening a children's museum in Wolfenbuttel back in 1998. So the educator trained as a children's museum maker, looked at various museums throughout Germany and developed a concept for Wolfenbuttel. "My goal has always been to make children, young people and adults curious – but without being super-teachy," she says. "Adults often have to learn to be curious again. Children are that by themselves."

In 2000, the time had come. The Wolfenbuttel Children's Museum, renamed the Aha-Erlebnismuseum five years later, was founded and Annette Goslar decided to quit her job as an educator to devote herself fully to her new project.

Timo werner: he is still looking for his role in the dfb team

Timo werner: he is still looking for his role in the dfb team

Timo Werner is visibly and audibly pleased as he rides his bike into Adi Dassler Stadium. On Saturday mornings, small fields were marked out and nets set up where the German national team is training in its European Championship quarters. "Cool, soccer tennis," exclaims Werner.

Every soccer player loves to work with the ball in training, but the 25-year-old Werner is also fully committed to all other units in the training camp. The striker wants to do everything for a good tournament – but he also knows that he has to do everything for it. That he has something to prove to the public and especially to national coach Joachim Low.

Werner: "Have improved in many areas"

A year ago, he moved from RB Leipzig to Chelsea FC for 53 million euros, and like so many professionals before him, he didn't have an easy first year in the Premier League. "I had a lot of ups and downs," says Werner. The season started well, then came a slump, from which he slowly worked his way out – not so much by scoring a lot of goals, as he had been known to do until then, but by scoring assists. And in the end, the Champions League victory outshone everything anyway.
