Julian Weigls Bundesliga

20 years old was Julian Wall as he trumped the great ABI Alonso. On the 34th match day of the 2015/16 season, the then BVB-Youngster in the game against the 1st FC Cologne (2: 2) Shear unbelievable 218 ball contacts – two more than the Spanish midfield strategist almost two years earlier with FC Bayern (also against Cologne). To date, wall thus keeps the Bundesliga record for most ball contacts in a game.

In the game, describes the meanwhile 26-year-old Wall in the new episode Thomas Tuchel meets DAZN, I did not do that so. Shortly after graduation he experienced by the BVB team manager of his record. I’m often approached today, of course, that makes me proud, explains Wall, who has been heading for Benefice Lisbon since January 2020. ABI Alonso is a role model for me – and when you catch up with me, then he deserves it.

Particularly noteworthy: In his record against Cologne, Wall did not even have the full distance in the square, was replaced in the 84th minute for Erik Dorm. There I have to call Thomas Tuchel again and be angry, jokes Mail in the podcast in the direction of his then coach, which brought him to Dortmund in 2015 from 1860 Munich and made directly to the regular player.

Freiburg and Mainz knocked on before the BVB change

For me, he was a very important coach in my professional career, says Wall. First, I looked for club with my consultant that had been an intermediate step after 1860. There were contact to Freiburg and to Mainz. Then the big BVB knocked on.

When I had the conversation with Thomas Tuchel, he first explained to me who I am as a player, remembers Mail. That was impressive. Then he told me he sees the chance that I come to games. This should be true: directly in his first BVB season, wall 51 compulsory games completed, drove at the end of the season even with the European Championship to France.

Even the FanS hop employees did not recognize Wall

He had hardly anyone on the note for a year ago – not even in Dortmund himself. Shortly after I arrived, says Wall, I went to the fan shop and wanted to buy jerseys. At the cash desk I asked if I asked is There are a discount for players and the staff asked: ‘Where do you play? In the A-youth? In the second team?’ Nobody really knew me.

As he was once at 1860 Munich with 18 years for only two weeks of captain, why he was Stinkier’s League on his coach before the Champions League game and why a Benefice fan ran naked by Lisbon because of him, says Wall in the new episode Thomas Tuchel meets DAZN.
