German legends reunite at the Wanderers


The team had extra reason to impress in training on Tuesday with a UEFA Champions League winner on hand to watch their session.

There was a surprise guest at Wanderers training on Tuesday with ex-Liverpool and German international Dietmar Hamann dropping in to watch the squad go through their paces.

Hamann, who is in Australia on holiday, was invited down by his former Reds and Germany teammate – and current Wanderers boss – Markus Babbel.

The pair played together at Liverpool between 2000 and 2004, helping the Reds win the treble (FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup) in 2001.

Hamann, one of the best defensive midfielders in the world during his heyday, watched the session before catching up with Babbel, who is preparing for his first competitive match in charge of the Wanderers against Hellenic AC in the FFA Cup next Tuesday night.
