'Middendorp? You’d Have To Ask My Brother…'

Werder Bremen’s Sebastian Langkamp explained that his brother played under Kaizer Chiefs’ Ernst Middendorp in Germany, saying ‘it’s cool’ to have a German coach in South Africa.
 
 
Middendorp has had a solid start to life at Chiefs during his second spell at the club, winning three games in a row ahead of the weekend’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns, and tomorrow will have a chance to get back to winning ways when they come up against Bidvest Wits.
 
Langkamp, who was in attendance for the clash at FNB Stadium, told the media that he was surprised to hear that the Glamour Boys had his brother’s former Arminia Bielefeld coach in charge, explaining that he was a success during his time in Germany. 
 
The 30-year-old defender told the media, “I was really surprised when I heard it, because he was a coach at Bielefeld for my brother when he played there. It’s his second time here (at Chiefs), and he’s really famous here.
 
“He was successful in the past, so it’s cool to have a German trainer here. Also, he was successful with Bielefeld in the German league. I was surprised, I don’t know him personally, so you’d have to ask my brother I guess.”
 
Bremen are in South Africa on a midseason training camp, and their sporting director, Frank Baumann, thinks Middendorp can turn around the Amakhosi’s fortunes.
 
He said, “Yeah, I think I played against him and he was a coach at Bielefeld. We know that he is a very big name here and has worked with many clubs. Kaizer Chiefs are a really big club here, this season is maybe not so good but I think he develop with his attitude. He’s a good guy, a good coach, and I wish him all the best.”
