With Bill Shankly and Manni Breuckmann

Not just a game

Breuckmann 1

“Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.” It’s one of the most famous quotes in the history of football and it came from the legendary former Liverpool manager Bill Shankly. But was he right? Certainly Germans take their football very seriously, which is just one reason why the country’s national team won their fourth world cup title earlier this year. One of the outstanding voices of football commentary in Germany is Manni Breuckmann, my latest guest on Talking Germany.
