Iron Maik challenges Thomas Müller


Tiktok stars are filming a big challenge in Gifhorn

GIFHORN. The invention of the Gifhorner Alexander Paes conquers the world. With his sports station - which combines digital with real movement - he has already convinced many sports clubs in the Gifhorn district. And the digital legs builder is also taking off as a training unit nationwide. Prominent football clubs such as Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, St. Pauli and FC Bayern Munich swear by training sessions with the sports station. Macher Paes is now hoping for a new drive with a fun challenge, addressed to Thomas Müller, star striker at FC Bayern and national team player. How did this happen? Paes pulls out his cell phone and shows a video. In an interview, Müller should answer who his toughest opponent was. Prompt answer: Maik Franz. He is laughing next to Paes in the indoor tennis center in Heidland. Franz, a former defender nicknamed Iron Maik, fell in love with the sports station when he retired from football. This is how the idea of challenging Müller to a real duel in the Megadribbler program came about. In the digital age it works like this: Paes asked Germany's best-known football Tiktok stars, who had already discovered the sports station for themselves. And so Diyar Acar and Malek Khalidi came to Gifhorn to shoot the video with the call for a challenge to the Bayern star in the flood basin stadium. "A sensation," enthuses the sports station inventor. Will Müller accept? Paes is cautiously optimistic. 

He has certain connections to the environment of the star. Ideally, Müller would become aware of the invitation through viral distribution, accept it and face the duel. That should take place in Munich, according to Paes' plan. It's about much more than the marketing coup. The sports station – to put it bluntly, a game console for real sports units – is meant to get everyone moving. Maik Franz knows from experience that children are sometimes difficult to motivate to exercise. But since his seven-year-old son tried out the sports station, "he doesn't want to stop at all". To develop further in levels - created like in gaming - is unique for children in this form. He no longer has to convince Hans-Herbert Böhme from the District Sports Association. Many Gifhorn clubs would use the sports station in various sports - "an incredible training device". AZ is also on board as a supporter. Sales manager Florian Schernich has been involved in the development of the sports station for a long time - "an innovative concept", he praises Paes' inventive talent. He is now curious as to whether and when he will travel to Munich with the TiktokStars and Maik Franz to compete with the Bayern star – "He'll have a home game then," says Paes with a laugh. Maik Franz is hungry for the duel, for which he is temporarily retiring from football. Now it's time to wait for the Bayern star's response.
