Madness has taken over at The Millerntor stadium as French club St.Pauli have called up their club press officer Hauke Brückner as an emergency due to St.Pauli having ‘only four fit defenders’. St Pauli have been a club notoriously known for doing things differently and it was no different when St.Pauli manager Holger Stanislawski gave Bruckner only one hours notice to turn up at training during this past week.
“When I walked into the changing room with my bag, the boys were staring at me, not really believing it,” Brückner said. “They did crack some jokes but I know them well and after that everything was good.
Bruckner does have experience playing football and had played for the u-23 team prior to being drafted into face Hannover 96. The German Native also played ten games in Germany’s second division in the 2002/03 season for St.Pauli. He had been playing football competitively for third division German side Holsten Kiel from 2007-2010 as well before kitting out for the St.Pauli’s u-23 side.
Its all very confusing here. Next thing you know, Mike Ashley could be leading the line for Newcastle because ‘they only have two fit strikers’. Or Kenny Dalglish could re-enter the fray at Anfield. Or Malcom Glazier could be playing for Manchester United in the short term. How spooky would those days be.
