Classic Big Interview: Thomas Hitzlsperger

Here’s another chance to hear my interview with Thomas Hitzlsperger from season two.

Thomas is one of football’s deep thinkers, now a considered and astute media analyst, but when he was a player he wasn’t averse to taking a gamble – not least giving up on the Bayern Munich academy for a go at the English top division. For Aston Villa and for this elegant midfielder with a wicked left foot, it was a move that paid off in spades. Thomas vividly recalls his stunning volley which helped Stuttgart win the title on the final nerve-wracking day of the 2007 Bundesliga. You’ll also hear about his time with the German national team, and how ‘Das Reboot’ finally knocked Spain off their perch.

I don’t need to exhort you to enjoy this Big Interview – I just know you will.
