The wonderful Michael Ballack is ending his career as a soccer player. For years he stitched the German national team together, always managing to be where he was needed at both ends of the field. The crucial pass, the defensive assist. He was amazing. The most impressive player. I’m just waiting and biding my time until he becomes the national trainer.


The “gamemaker.” Someone like Michael Ballack, who sets up the plays. Manages to be in the right places at the right times.
