Why did you want to help Filun and Calupi? The German explains it this way. “With this action I also want to make a contribution to Chilean football. Unfortunately, the fans there are suffering a lot because La Roja does not play in the World Cup. The Sub 15, 17 and 20 no longer play with prominence in South America. And in many clubs the many talents that Chile has are not promoted optimally. A rethink has to happen. Then the fans, the clubs and the football association will be able to celebrate success again.”

“I know what I am talking about, because they allowed me to work in your wonderful country in 2019/2020 in the youth and professional sectors. That’s why my heart bleeds a little, ”she closes.
