He almost hovers over Munster like a goal phantom…
Prussia thinks it’s funny. Schalke legend fuels Terodde rumor.
Since Simon Terodde (35) officially announced in early April that he wanted to leave the Royal Blues in the summer, he has – for whatever reason – been constantly associated with the Adlerträger. Although a change from the top clippers to the third division promoted should be as realistic as a sunburn under the Christmas tree in this country.
From a financial perspective alone. His annual salary in Gelsenkirchen was around 1.5 million euros, around half of the total market value of the Black-White-Greens (3.10 million).
All the more strange that the former Schalke star Rüdiger “Abi” Abramczyk (67) trumpeted again during a legend talk: “As far as I know, Simon has already signed with Prussia.” Of course, all fans of the eagle bearers immediately pricked up their ears again.
Münster’s sports director Peter Niemeyer (39) is just amused about it. Of course he would kiss the native of Bocholter immediately. But he remains a realist and makes it clear: “Actually, I stick to not communicating names. But since I’ve been asked about Terodde so often in the meantime, I’ll make an exception in this case. Yes, Simon is a great player, had a super career and is sensational as a person. But unfortunately far beyond our collar size!”
That’s it then with Prussia and Terodde….
It is interesting, however, that Niemeyer and Noch-Schalke have had close ties in the past. And ten years ago they even rattled violently together. Münster’s current sports boss was captain and leader of the pack at Hertha, while Terodde was still chasing goals for Union. In the Berlin derby (February 2013), the rivals parted peacefully 2-2.
After the final whistle, however, Terodde let off a lot of steam and complained loudly about opponent Niemeyer: “He told me after two minutes that I couldn’t do anything. That’s why I’m happy that I showed what I can do with my goal.” And further: “It’s good that we have a captain like Mattuschka, who leads with performance – not like the other.”
Niemeyer’s counterattack was not long in coming: “He should keep the ball flat. For the fact that I have so little quality, I’ve been able to stay in the football business for quite a long time. If Simon Terodde wants to know what it’s like to be in the UEFA Cup final, he can call me. I’m happy to provide information.”
What made headlines in the capital’s media for days at the time is now just a slob. For both parties involved. Niemeyer admits with a wink: “I was young and inexperienced, I could have resisted the saying. But the issue has been resolved. Simon and I talked to each other for a long time and have no more problems with each other.”
From this point of view, it could actually work with their cooperation for the new season in Münster. If only the tiresome money wouldn’t put a spanner in the works…
