Mr. Selke are you someone who looks for the new year, once again aware of the back and the last twelve months reviewing?
Actually, not. I'm a guy who lives in the Here and Now. I look more from summer to summer, and moving to the season of my conclusion. Unless it was a year in which there was a Mega-Event such as the 2016 the silver medal at the Olympic games. Then I look and am pleased.
The most important event in 2018, was probably a negative, the severity of lung injury, suffered in the pre-season. As they look back on it?
I was in the summer in good shape and have been looking forward to may with almost 24 for the first Time in my life, a complete preparation with the team. I was probably the Only one from the whole squad who was looking forward to it (laughs). I don't want to say that it is a curse. But I really have had often bad luck at the start of the season. This time it was particularly hard for me, because the team has played in the first Play in a run and I had to rankämpfen again.
hurt more than the actual injury?
Yes, already. In this Phase, I would have liked to have been on the court. Watch it, it was very hard for me.
But the injury itself, the crack Lung, not without was also.
That's right. At the beginning I thought: Well, that it has not caught me at the feet or at the knee. But after the first few times I would have rather wished that it would have been the other way around.
it was pretty bad. In Wolfsburg ...
... where you were for the first time changes again in the case of Hertha BSC ...
... because for me it was really borderline. After the first Sprint, I felt almost like I want to right back out. I took forever to recover from this Sprint. From the outside it must have looked funny.
have you ever Had anxiety or panic?
anxiety or panic. But the time in the hospital, as I had a tube in the lung, which was already hard. And the uncertainty. As our doctor said that the injury is for a footballer to be atypical, I didn't know what that means: it Is extremely bad? It has a serious impact on my career?
you Have taken something Positive from this time? Perhaps, you may not get to you?
Yes, but much more important are the things that have nothing to do with the football. I found it to be really strong, as Hertha looked after in this time to me, even if it goes here and there, just little things.
I just always had the feeling that someone cares about me. The simply good. Or that the Doc has brought me a Burger from the team hotel to the hospital. Nothing earth shattering actually, but it's just these little things, it is estimated just in this Moment.
Have you learned patience? Need to learn?
I'm not real patient, in any respect. On the field, patience was never my strength. In youth I was as hot porn. There it was: The want to much. Wants to too much, too soon. Meanwhile it has become better. But I think a patient man I'll never.
you Are also impatient, with regard to your goals for the new year?
You should always be convinced of this. I am. Therefore, my first goal is to simply stay healthy. And fit. For everything else on the course, I am self-responsible.
Already in the last season it went for them. Also, since you had hurt yourself in preparation, then come but always better in the swing. At the end you will have displaced even Vedad Ibisevic out of the Team and were the number one in the storm. How crucial is the rhythm, so that you can successfully play football?
It is especially called for in mentality: the mentality to accept the fight again and again – even if you actually already at the front were going up against a competitor who is not only captain, but also the one or the other goal in the Bundesliga has scored and his place is also not easy to give up claims. Of course it is exhausting, if you fall without fault of their own back again and you have to fight again in the team. In this season, we have a significantly higher level of quality in the Team.

With time, it has become better. Nevertheless, I must get it to continue to think of channeling. You have to try to show what is possible and to think: I have to make in ten minutes, five goals and three present.page 1 of 2 next page "The national team, I trust myself" "Horst Hrubesch is easy to read an authority" article on a page
