With the catch-up game gThe SC Siegelbach starts our FrauenElv on Saturday at 19.00:XNUMX p.m. at home in Göttelborn back to the Regionalliga Südwest. After intensive and long preparation, a player is particularly keen on the kick-off: we're talking about midfielder Lara Martin, who has fought back after a long injury break in recent months.
It was in September 2018 at the away game in Namborn that Martin contracted a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament. "I had to start from scratch afterwards because I had no experience with such serious injuries," said the 20-year-old looking back today. In addition to the knee, the rehabilitation also worked on body stability and injury prevention. "Today I can say that after that I was as fit as I have never been in my whole life," says Martin, who was able to play her first 2019-minute game again exactly ten months after her operation in August 90. With the FrauenElv she currently occupies second place in the table and would love to annoy the first place in the table 1. FFC Niederkirchen again in the second half of the season. "We had some really strong, but sometimes also mixed games and want to bring more consistency to our game as the season progresses," the multiple international player is confident of the upcoming start. Her trainer Kai Klankert assigns a very important role to his player: “Lara worked very hard in rehab and not only reached her previous level after her return. She has increased again in the past weeks and months and is a central figure in our team. ”It seems that the midfielder could have gained more confidence in herself and her body through her injury. Her team also sees her as a "leader" and acts as the deputy captain. Communication and enthusiasm are important to her: "I always want to get my people involved and always try to motivate them."
In addition to football, Martin is completing a dual degree in business administration with a major in industry and also works for URSAPHARM GmbH. She tries to spend the little free time that she has in addition to studying, training and playing games with her family. "During my injury, I simply felt that there is nothing more important than people who are there for you - loyalty and cohesion are therefore extremely important to me," says Martin. The coming opponent from Siegelbach is well known to her - sometimes it is also the players with whom she played in the selection. At 4-2 in the first leg, the 1,60 m whirlwind scored its first goal after the injury - a possible repetition on Saturday would be a great wish. When Lara Martin talks about football, you can hear her ambition directly: “I am a very bad loser and always aim to win - but I also bring a lot of jokes to the pitch - as the saying goes: small in the body , great in spirit.
