News in brief: Happe on Spieltags-Show – Jolle scores again

A former Bayer 04 youth and first team player discusses racism on ZDF and Markus Happe is the guest on ‘Spieltag – Die Show’: the news in brief on Saturday.

Former Bayer 04 player Henrichs (currently at AS Monaco) is a guest on the ZDF sports programme Aktuelles Sportstudio. From 23.00 CET, the 23-year-old will talk to presenter Dunja Hayali about his three years as Werkself first team player in eleven years at the club including the youth teams at Leverkusen and other issues including racism in professional football. Düsseldorf goalkeeper Zack Steffen will also take part in the programme.

Former Werkself player Benjamin Henrichs (here in March 2018) is guest on today’s Aktuelles Sportstudio.

Happe on ‘Spieltag – Die Show’

30 minutes ahead of kick-off at tomorrow’s Bundesliga away game at Schalke 04, fans can again get in the mood for the game. From 17.30 CET, Bayer 04 will again broadcast the ‘Spieltag – Die Show’ live on YouTube. The interview guest at the Schwadbud this time: Markus Happe. After nine years with Bayer 04 (1991 to 2000) the central defender moved on to the Werkself’s opponents from Gelsenkirchen. The man from Münster played for the Royal Blues for two and a half years before returning to Leverkusen via FC Köln and Kickers Offenbach where he ended his playing career with the Bayer 04 Reserves in the summer of 2010.

As a virtual interviewee, we welcome back Hans Sarpei, who played for Schalke and the Black and Reds. Just before kick-off, Dirk Maverick will sing the club anthem from home. Werkself Radio will then start with the match broadcast. It’s worth tuning in.

Pohjanpalo scores again

Bayer 04 loanee Joel Pohjanpalo keeps on scoring in the second division. The striker netted the only goal of the game on 84 minutes in the 1-0 win for Hamburg SV at Dynamo Dresden. It was the eighth goal scored by the Finn since he moved north in the winter break. Jolle’s loan will be completed at the end of the current campaign.
