Before being celebrated on Thursday the Great Premiere of The Round Life in the Dortmund Football Museum, Ingo Anderbrugge talked to the Football over the drive behind his first book. The former professional of the FC Schalke 04 – member in the centuries of the Royal Blue and UEFA Cup winner of 1997 – says, among other things, why he has also remained a team player as an author and as he is as prominent protagonists like BVB President Dr. Reinhard Rauball, ex-Schalke boss Clemens Tönnies, star chef Christian Jürgens, Dressage Olympic champion Nicole Uphoff and football world champion Matthias Ginter could win for his project and which message is in the book.

Mr. Anderbrugge, her first book is called The Round teaches life – how is the title meant?

For about 2008, we have been pursuing the Credo in the Football School Ingo Anderbrugge : Training. To learn. Life! In our football camps, we do not want to train professionals, but we want to convey messages and values ​​to the children and adolescents. Of course, fun and joy are in the foreground, there is also a sporty claim. But it s also about things like punctuality, discipline, humility and respect. So values ​​that have brought me in my career as a footballer at all, where I was. And their mediation is more important in my eyes, because it often does not happen to the degree in the family as it happens to my youth.

And then they thought: why only talk about it in the football camps, if I can write it down?

It was not that way. I ve never read as a child, even then when my mother has given me a football book. My thing was always more math. That s why it was not necessarily obvious to me that I write a book.


Then the author Peter Oßwald came to me and asked me if I do not want to do that with him: write a book. I was skeptical at first, never wanted to write a pure autobiography. In our conversations, the idea then developed to write about how to overcome resistors, drain and pursued his goal, even though it is difficult.

It is probably no coincidence that the book after one and a half years of Corona pandemic appears.

The planning started before, but of course, it fits well through the past few months. I have experienced it myself that one could not do that from today to tomorrow what is important. We had no school projects more, no football camps, no projects with long-term unemployed or the AWO. I was right down for a while. But the sport helped me. At some point I told myself: if I stay healthy and fit, then Corona can not do anything.

I found it charming to have eleven actors with my book. In the end, it even has become a few more.

As a footballer you are used to team sports. Did you have several prominent protagonists?

I was always a team player and today wants to be a coach for my 16 employees. If I hold lectures, I always have a team of eleven players. The hot then joy, role models or self-confidence. I found it charming, even with my book eleven actors. In the end, it even has become a few more.

A total of 14 names can be found in the book – including the BVB President Dr. Reinhard Rauball.

It started with him. He was the first one I called. At that I signed my first professional contract at Borussia Dortmund at that time. To this day, I call him Mr President. Then I called Huub Stevens, Werner Hansch, Clemens Tönnies. People who are part of my life and were. A bigger one, sometimes a smaller. I am very proud that you and so many others wanted to be there with this project.

There are also star chef Christian Jürgens and the dressage Olympic champion Nicole Uphoff in their book. How did that happen?

Nicole Uphoff I met with a private event. I was impressed by her and her life. Your career is based on discipline. She told me that she never drove on vacation in the past, that she always has to sweep the stable. Many think yes, for successful people, the curve always go upwards. But it also includes deprivation and victims. Just like defeats.

Jürgens reports from the Testers of the Guide Michelin – and compares the work in the kitchen with the Champions League.

One of his first sentences to me was: For me, every plate is a final. I knew immediately: that has to go to the book. He told me about the tension that prevails in the kitchen. Of how accurately needs to work. Because outside the Shiri could sit – that is, in the case of the one who forgives the stars and takes them away again, if the quality is no longer true. Christian Jürgens also told me that he wanted exactly this pressure. He did not always want to make Hunters Schnitzel. Also, this distinguishes successful people that they stay tuned and bite themselves. Even if there are hurdles to overcome. This is sometimes too short these days. That s why I say, if a reader of this book – I do not know personally – tells me that reading the lap teaches life helped him by a heavy situation in his life, then I have already reached my goal.

Why do you think that?

I have the feeling that it is sometimes easy for children today. I give you an example: some time ago I got a call to one of our football camps. Whether there would be a hall to train? Why, I asked back then – though I already knew what it was about. Ultimately, the child in question was not logged in, because it should not exercise outside in autumn. There is a warm weather for worse weather but warm jackets, caps, scarves…

I was a child yes Gladbach fan and wanted to receive someone who covers this area of ​​my life.

However, you also have a representative of the younger football generation: Gladbach s Matthias Ginter, who is 27 years old and became a world champion in 2014.

I was a child yes Gladbach fan and absolutely wanted to receive someone who covers this area of ​​my life. With Matthias, who is a very fine guy, my wife Katrin and I have the first time in the context of a donation gala contact. When I asked him if he does not want to participate, he was immediately there. And I consider his message very importantly, he was never the best, he told me, but he was always the first one who came to the cabin before training, and the last one who went after. Thanks to its diligence, he has done it to the top. Exactly such players do you need in every team.

Also in the team sports football there are individual top marks: they are with 36 hits Schalke s record scorer in the 2nd Bundesliga. Are you currently fearing that Simon Terodde makes the record in dispute?

About this topic, I have not thought up to just a second. (laughs) No, which should continue to shoot as many goals for Schalke and lead the club back into the 1st Bundesliga. However, this is difficult, a terodde alone is not enough to climb. But so far, the league is good for the S04 this season, this development may like to continue.

Everywhere the red carpet is rolled out when one of the Eurofighter comes.

They belonged to that interest group, which wanted to bring Ralf Rangnick to Schalke in March. It did not happen. Has your relationship suffered from Schalke below?

My commitment was always the club. And not only two, three acting persons, but also the fans who love Schalke. I get that to feel again and again when I deal with fan clubs. Whether in Leipzig, in the Sauerland or on top of the lake: Everywhere the red carpet is rolled out when one of the Eurofighter comes. I sometimes think: I m not the pope. This is an extreme value you have to get. I still wish the club the best. He has shaped my life.
