World Cup 2022 | TV hammer! Schweinsteiger gets a new partner


Share post:

At the 2021 European Football Championship, Bastian Schweinsteiger appeared on “ARD” as a TV expert alongside presenter Jessy Wellmer. Now it has been revealed: The broadcaster is rebuilding the team for the World Cup in Qatar.

Instead of the 42-year-old Wellmer, Esther Sedlaczek, who is six years younger, will be at the side of the FC Bayern legend at the final tournament in Qatar in winter and will lead through the program. This was reported by “Sport Bild” on Wednesday.

Sedlaczek switched from the pay-TV channel “Sky” to “ARD” a year ago and since then has mainly appeared as a presenter of the sports show and the sports show club.

At the World Cup in the desert country, the cooperation between Schweinsteiger and Sedlaczek, which began in the spring of this year, will be continued. The two appeared together in front of the camera at the international match between the German national team and the Netherlands and the DFB Cup match between Union Berlin and FC St. Pauli in March.

This personnel realignment of “ARD”, which alternately broadcasts the World Cup games of the DFB team with “ZDF”, should not mean the complete end for Jessy Wellmer at the World Cup.

Sedlaczek follows Opdenhövel as World Cup presenter

According to the media report, it should be used in various formats for the broadcaster, such as a talk show or player interviews.

Wellmer received criticism last year for her interview with the then national coach Joachim Löw, after he had just retired after 15 years in office with the national team against England (0:2).

At the last World Cup, men had always led the broadcasts of the German games for “ARD”. Most recently from the 1990s to 2010 in the person of Gerhard Delling, then in Brazil and Russia by Matthias Opdenhövel.
