Pop icon Robbie Williams has been invited to train with Bundesliga club Hannover 96 after outing himself as a fan of the club in a video blog posted following a concert in the city.
Williams recently played a concert to 45,000 fans in the HDI Arena, the 96ers’ home ground, including - of course - his classic “Let Me Entertain You”.
“Hannover was possibly up there with Dublin as the best audiences on the tour,” Williams said in his video blog. “They have become my favourite place in Germany, so much so that I want to start supporting their football team! Hannover, God bless you, you were absolutely incredible.”
Watch: Robbie's new club have made a great start to life back in the Bundesliga, including beating Schalke on Matchday 2!
Hannover originally responded on their website, saying: “You’re always welcome, Robbie!”
The promoted club have since gone a step further, however, with coach Andre Breitenreiter using his press conference before the Matchday Four fixture with Hamburg to invite the pop star to training.
“We’ve got a space going up front. Robbie Williams can definitely pop by and join in a training session with the boys,” said Breitenreiter on Thursday. “Let’s see what he can do.”
