Wendler: How did the season turned out for you so far?

 

Vani: The 3-0 win in the opening game against KPMG FC was a positive start to the season. We were a little bit surprised, because the competition in the COED Division 2 is quite high for an amateur league. After that we wanted to build some momentum, but the second game did not go according the plan. PwC United FC was considerably better than our previous opponent. In the end, we had a lot of individual errors that lead ultimately to one-on-one opportunities.

 

Wendler: After a mixed start to the season, what are the team goals for PhytoNutrition United FC this year?

 

Vani: We want to definitely finish under the top-four. I am sure that we can pull that off, if all of our players stay healthy during the course of the season.

 

Wendler: And personally? Do you want to score a certain amount of goals?

 

Vani: I just want to go out and run as much as I can. If I can score some goals, then all the better. But it’s not like I have a certain number of goals in mind when it comes to my personal statistics

 

Wendler: As the captain of Phytonutrition United FC, your task is also to keep your teammates motivated. How do you do that?

 

Vani: I find that pretty tough. I consider myself an introverted person. So I do not have those skills to build people up, but what I am trying to do is to give all players a direction when I am on the pitch. I try to be vocal.

 

Wendler: If you take a step back, do you think that you improved your game on a personal level since you have joined the COED Division 2?

 

Vani: I was playing soccer since I am five years old but I never did competitively. I think that my touches have gotten a bit better since I am playing in the CCSL. I am able to dribble with my head up more often and I am trying to take more time on the ball, look around and decide where to put the ball before I even receive it.

 

Wendler: How does playing soccer on a regular basis fit together with your everyday job?

 

Vani: Well, I mean it is part of a healthy lifestyle. Since I prescribe diets for people, my job is essentially making sure that somebody’s diet is meeting all the nutrition that they need. Long story short, soccer and food go hand in hand.

 

Wendler: When you wake up in the morning on a match day, are you a bit more energetic than usual?

 

Vani: Usually I am a bit more anxious, because I do not know how the game will turn out. But after I have finished my shift, I am eventually getting more and more into the zone.

 

Wendler: Mr. Vani, thank you for this interview.
