New job at ÖFB – captain Carina Wenninger ends her career

“I could still help many teams at the moment, but you should stop when it’s most beautiful,” said the 32-year-old. Her further career plan is already in place: The Styrian will take up a position in league management for the women’s Bundesliga at the Austrian Football Association in July. In the red-white-red ÖFB team dress, the central defender was part of the team that made it to the semi-finals of the European Championship in summer 2017 – an absolute highlight of her career. “That was a crazy moment for me. It was a wonderful 16 years in the national team. I loved it,” said the footballer, who visibly thanked all her ex-clubs and her ÖFB team boss Irene Fuhrmann emotionally. Fuhrmann and ÖFB sports director Peter Schöttel said in unison about Wenninger: “In fact, she is at the peak of her career.”
