Zum #FinaleOfLove erreichten uns noch schöne Grüße der Nachfahren unseres langjährigen Spielers und Trainers, Sepp Herberger. Sie drücken die Daumen und wir freuen uns schon sie das nächste Mal in Berlin zu bewirten, wenn sie in der Stadt sind.
„My name is Patrick, I am 63 years old and I am French. My mother's name was Anna Marguerita Herberger, born on Septembre 5, 1929, in Gross Mövern (Moyeuvre-Grande), Moselle. His father, my grandfather, Ernst Nikolas Herberger, was born in Teterchen.
Her post-war identity card, issued on April 3, 1946, declared her French. From this war and these deaths, we prefer to remember the wee stories forgotten in the Big One.
My mother always told me that we, in Germany, were a professional footballer family. A long time ago I discovered what the name Sepp Herberger means to the Germans.
I was young and spent my days with my German friend named Wolfgang. Between our beers and our discussions, the Sepp Herberger name will come up. Then letting him know, without realizing how important this was to him and our bar mates, that I was part of his family. A family put far away by this France-Germany border, but also close by this game : Football.
Even if I never had the chance to meet him, my mother told me that Sepp was "too rich to join us", I grew up with these stories, legends and name. I loved it, admired it and shared it with my son, Pierre, who is also passionate about football. This sport, the glue that holds our society and our lives together. This sport that allows us to forget our wars. Whether they are worldwide or personal.
If I can't be with you this weekend, please know that football must continue to live. From Berlin to Gross Mövern, from Germany to France, we share a popular football. A football for fans and by fans.
All the best for all of you,
Come on TeBe!
Patrick & Pierre Vuillemot Herberger“
