Wendler: Mike, you have been playing soccer all your life. Tell us a bit about your experiences.

 

Traian: I was actually competing on a professional level in the Canadian Soccer League between 1988 and 1989. Back in the days, I decided to join the predecessor team of the Montreal Impact. It was a lot of fun to play for this club.

 

Wendler: Even if you have been around in the business for a long time now, would you say that you still have the same passion for soccer?

 

Traian: Yes, absolutely. If you come to visit a game of Sky United FC, you will hear my voice all over the place. Considering my age, I am grateful to still be part of a Premiership team. Since it is my last season in this division, I want to give everything that is left in the tank and defend the title.

 

Wendler: Let’s talk a bit about the ongoing summer season. Sky United FC had some serious troubles early on. You were not able to win any of the first two games against FC Dejardins and Carlsberg FC. Why did you struggle in the beginning of the season?

 

Traian: The first match-up was very tough for us. FC Dejardins has an excellent organization on the pitch. We were able to lead the game for most of the time, but in the end we were running out of gas a little bit. Carlsberg FC, on the other hand, surprised us completely. They have a couple of new players, who can make the difference in the Premiership. We were not prepared for that.

 

Wendler: How did you get back on the path to success?

 

Traian: We all took the two games as a wake-up-call. After the disappointing start to the season, I sat down with my teammates and discussed the strategy for the upcoming weeks with them. We had to regroup, in order to play better. This definitely helped us out to become a top team in the Premiership again.

 

Wendler: Is it exciting for you to be back in the title race?

 

Traian: Yes, of course. I can clearly feel the butterflies in my belly, before a game kicks off. If you want to win the trophy at the end of the season, you have to take every opponent seriously.

 

Wendler: Do you have a special ritual that you are performing on match days?

 

Traian: As a therapist in my professional life, I try to warm up my body as best I can. My experiences prevent me from getting injured.

 

Wendler: Mike, thank you for this interview.
