World Champion Häßler about his cabin blackout
Football Germany is worried about Thomas “Icke” Häßler (56). The world champion legend has to give up his coaching position at BFC Preussen (6th league) indefinitely after memory loss, tinnitus and neck pain!
BILD spoke exclusively to Hässler.
BILD: How are you?
Häßler: “Thank you, good given the circumstances. I’m really happy about the many calls and get well wishes, including almost all the world champions from 1990, including Rudi Völler, Pierre Littbarski, Andreas Brehme and Thomas Berthold. The sympathy is overwhelming, it gives me a lot of strength and helps a lot during this time. I am a fighter. I want to get this done and get back on the sidelines as soon as possible. i love soccer The fact that my club BFC Preussen gives me as much time as I need is also unique.”
BILD: What else do you know about your blackout on August 17?
Häßler: “I remember it well. All of a sudden my thoughts were gone. I didn’t know what I wanted to tell the team before.”
Already the second dropout. On July 20, there is said to have been a similar incident in a test match.
BILD: That sounds worrying. What’s next?
Häßler: “I am not terminally ill, but unfortunately the causes are still unclear. I’ve talked to a lot of people, and the word burnout was also mentioned when there were very similar symptoms. I’m curious to see what the evaluations will reveal next week. I was turned upside down in almost every department of a medical center in Charlottenburg.”
Today the medical marathon at the ENT doctor continues because Hässler has been suffering from a bad ringing in his ear for the past week.
BILD: Are you now afraid of serious secondary diseases?
Häßler: “I’m not afraid! I’ll fight and I’ll make it. Everything will be fine.”
Pierre Littbarski (62) also believes in that!
Icke’s World Champion buddy: “Icke is my little half brother. I called him on Tuesday. He sounded normal, he’s fine so far. Icke had told me that he had tinnitus and therefore balance problems. That’s why he can’t do his coaching job at the moment. But he had a very positive effect on me and wants to be back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
That would make football Germany happy!
