The best sayings by Ansgar Brinkmann

  • Ansgar Brinkmann: His best sayings

    The “white Brazilian” is an icon of German football. The former club shopper was known for his provocative interviews when he was active. Matching his 53rd birthday there is a selection of his best sayings:

  • “If I was you, I’d rather be me.”

  • “I’m not at home at the moment. But if you press button three, I’ll give you a planetary joke. Press button four and you’ll get a truck full of washing powder. And if you want to speak to me personally, you can reach me every day between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. in my favorite pub Pane et vino.” (Brinkmann’s answering machine when he was with Preußen Münster)

  • “I already spent 8 million on champagne last night and still have 2.5 million in the account. What do you want?”

  • “Living as a single right next to the University of Bielefeld is like in the supermarket.”

  • “Once an opposing coach insulted me for 20 minutes at a time. At some point I burst out: ‘Man, coach, did I dial a zero that you keep talking to me? No? So sit down!'”

  • “For me, Meppen was the ugliest team in the second division. And I said that in advance, which of course the Meppeners noticed. But the revenge of the Meppeners went completely wrong. I had an opponent who insulted me for 85 minutes. He claimed my girlfriend slept over him all the time, my girlfriend called him all the time, and he even had nude photos of her. It wasn’t until the end of the game that I told him I was single.”

  • “This is fuel for the game.” (to his trainer Benno Möhlmann, who had caught him with fries in the locker room)

  • “Just look at the national team: nothing surprising happens there. In 1990, they were still street footballers and became world champions. There was Häßler or Klinsmann. And now: Vice world champions. But who was there in the group? Like that We would have even beaten a team like Saudi Arabia with Arminia Bielefeld.” (after the 2002 World Cup)

  • “The trainer is trying to save what can be saved. I hope he can get the Titanic back on track.”

  • “I hardly drank. I’ve never smoked a cigarette. I’ve only celebrated two or three times a year – but then really. Everyone noticed that.”
