An honor: 1. FC Heidenheims Mainka maintains the bandage


Defender Patrick Mainka was again selected captain by Heidenheim’s head coach Frank Schmidt. The 27-year-old, that was generated from Borussia Dortmund II in 2018, remains in his fifth year at FCH and has time out of mind become a leading performer. Last season he played 32 organization video games, racked up three objectives and also prepared another goal straight.

For 1. FC Heidenheim, the away video game at FC Hansa Rostock is on the program for the start of the 2nd division on Sunday (1.30 p.m., LIVE! on twist).

It’s an honor for me as well as I want to do the most effective I can in the function, stated the 1.94 meter giant, who is valued for his success and his likeable behavior. He knows that in this role clear statements are gotten out of him. In 2014 was my very first as captain, that was explanatory. It’s an ongoing process, but I believe I have actually made some progression, stated Mainka.

After Oliver Hüsing’s departure to Arminia Bielefeld, Mainka is most likely to form central defense with Tim Siersleben or Lennard Maloney. I assume this is the very first time that a younger player is standing next to me. I’m confident that it will certainly create well, said the citizen of Gütersloh, who has already played 130 two-league games.
