Nobody can split good friends…
For three years, Löwen super striker Sascha Mölders (35) and central defender Aaron Berzel (28) played together for 1860, celebrated promotion to the third division in 2018 and became best friends.
On Saturday at the third division derby 1860 against newly promoted Türkgücü they are direct opponents (2 p.m., live on Magenta Sport and on BR television)!
Mölders, the super striker. Berzel, the tough fighter.
“That doesn’t give me sleepless nights, but against Sascha, it’s not just mentality that is enough. It is undisputed that he has qualities that are above the 3rd division. It can always hit, but I’ll do everything I can to prevent that, ”says Berzel, whose contract with 1860 was not extended in the summer of 2020.
“There is already melancholy in it, I know 80 percent of the team. I’m a good point of contact for the coach, ”says Berzel. Also sees coach Alex Schmidt like this: “Aaron is a mentality monster, a leader.” Türkgücü only went bankrupt this season, is only two points behind the lions – with two games less.
And now comes the best friend duel!
Mölders (five goals, two assists) stays cool: “The friendship will rest for 90 minutes.”
And Berzel says: “We are professionals, on the pitch nobody treats the other to anything. We know our strengths and weaknesses very well. Then we’ll lie in each other’s arms and have a beer. Our friendship can take it. “
Mölders grins and says: “I’ll pay for the beer – if he’s lost.”
