1.FFC Turbine Potsdam say farewell to longtime coach Bernd Schröder
It’s quite an emotional day for 1.FFC Turbine Potsdam as they play their last home game of the season, celebrate their 45th club anniversary and say goodbye to their longtime coach Bernd Schröder who is retiring.
A former goalkeeper, Bernd Schröder took the role as 1.FFC Turbine Potsdam head coach in 1971. Between ’92 and 97′ Schröder became the club’s president before returning to the bench as manager in late 1997.
During his reign, Bernd Schröder earned a huge amount of success including winning UEFA Women’s Cup (2005), German Championship (2004, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012) and the German Cup (2004, 2005 and 2006).
Potsdam are looking to end this season’s final home match today (8 May 2016) on a high against tough opposition VfL Wolfsburg.
At 74 years old, this will be the last season that 1.FFC Turbine Potsdam will be under the guidance of Bernd Schröder.
