News in brief: Bravo scores Goal of the Season 2021/22

The votes have been counted: Iker Bravo scored the Goal of the Season in 2021/22. Werkself supporters have voted a goal scored with an overhead kick by the young Spaniard as the most spectacular strike of last season. Also in today's news in brief: Lars and Sven Bender become assistant coaches with the DFB, and the security service provider Securitas is looking for stewards for the BayArena.

Werkself fans have again had the chance to vote for their Goal of the Season in 2021/22. Bayer 04 supporters had the opportunity until the middle of this week to vote for their favourite Black and Red goal from last term on the club's Facebook page. Now there is a winner: Talented U19 striker Iker Bravo has been voted into top spot – congratulations.

In a 3-1 win against Fortuna Düsseldorf in the U19 Bundesliga West last October, the young Spaniard not only netted a brace for the U19 team but also achieved a rare feat: Teammate Emre Aksoy lifted the ball into the penalty area from the right on 75 minutes and Bravo rose to meet the ball with an acrobatic overhead kick from the penalty spot that ended up in the back of the net to make it 2-1.

HERE is the spectacular strike from Bravo to enjoy again.

DFB: Bender brothers are assistant coaches

From the pitch to the dugout: One year after retiring from the professional game, the 33 year-old twin brothers Lars and Sven Bender are now youth coaches with the German Football Association (DFB). Werkself honorary captain Lars joins the coaching staff of the Germany U15s under Marc-Patrick Meister and Mario Himsl, his twin brother Sven is assistant coach with the Germany U16 team working alongside Michael Prus and Janis Hohenhövel.


The two long-standing Werkself players, who together made 26 full international appearances for Germany, said on "We needed a break after our playing careers and we noticed we now want to give something back. With our experience, we believe we can provide a lot of help for the young talented players to help them on their way to being professional players."
