For a few weeks now, SWR Sport has been presenting goals, game and interview scenes on its YouTube channel – but also curiosities from four of our southwest clubs. Désirée Krause is responsible for 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
When we asked Désirée Krause last week if she would like a podcast – the answer was a spontaneous “yes” – we actually assumed that the 1. FC Kaiserslautern series would continue. But then the Red Devils suffered their first defeat at home in front of over 20,000 fans on the Betzenberg – against the penultimate Würzburger Kickers.
“There was a lack of effectiveness at FCK”
“It went so well, I’m also very affected,” says Désirée (Desi) Krause, who had to deal with a defeat for the first time in the seventh episode of the “Dein FCK” format she presented. “There was a lack of effectiveness at FCK, and not at Würzburg,” Desi sums up last Sunday’s 90 minutes. But she doesn’t see the situation as dramatic. On the one hand, the boys from coach Marco Antwerp did not play badly, with the exception of exploiting opportunities, on the other hand, things are still very close in the league. The distance upwards is just as small as that downwards.
To the SWR about the handball Bundesliga
Desi Krause has been part of the SWR sports editorial team for almost exactly three years. Born and raised in Mainz, football played a major role at a young age, but Desi gained his first journalistic experience with the handball players: “I worked for the handball Bundesliga for five years, was on the road in clubs and was also allowed to play in European and Driving world championships. I really enjoyed doing that. ” Almost logical that the ARD, after switching to SWR, draws on the experiences of Desi Krause and uses them for radio at the major handball tournaments. But she still lacks one major event in her now quite substantial collection: “I’ve always wanted to go to the Summer Olympics. Actually, I was really close. I already had my ticket for Tokyo 2020, then the games were postponed for a year due to the corona and the team downsized. But I am firmly targeting Paris 2024 “.
“Dein FCK”, Netcast, Sport in Rhineland-Palatinate
Before the next summer games, however, the “normal” tasks are now first of all. Of course, “Dein FCK” will continue to exist, a format that not only gives the creators, but also the users a lot of pleasure, if you can believe the reactions.
But behind the few minutes on YouTube there is a lot of work week after week: “Normally it’s two days, the game day with the observation of the game and the sounding out of the interviews and reactions and then the day after the production. Here are a few more people behind it, from the editor to the media designer to the colleagues in the editing department. A lot of men and women power is put into it, so it’s all the better that this format is so well received. ”
New tasks are waiting
The numbers for Desis part-time job in Cologne at WDR have also developed surprisingly positively. Since the beginning of the season, the radio reporters have broadcast all international and Champions League games of the German clubs as well as all Bundesliga and second league games live and in full, individually and in conference, on the ARD Sportschau app.
The whole thing is called Netcast and Desi Krause is part of the three-person team of moderators. An ambitious task, especially on a Saturday with games from 1:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. From the end of November there will even be another opportunity to see Désirée Krause next to her “Dein FCK”. She moves up to the SWR Sport team of moderators for the program “Sport in Rheinland Pfalz”. “I’m a little nervous about that, but I’m really looking forward to it.”
Derby at 1. FC Saarbrücken
Finally, we wanted to know from Desi whether a new, positive series would start at the derby of 1. FC Kaiserslautern at 1. FC Saarbrücken (Sa, live from 2 p.m. on SWR television and on the SWR Sport YouTube channel): “The coach can play derbies, has not lost any. I think FCK will win the game on Saturday”.
We talk about what moves the red devils. There are players, including the coach, people from the club, former Red Devils and of course Betze fans. Your 1. FC Kaiserslautern very close, very personal, very surprising – with Stefan Kersthold and Sebastian Zobel. Inside FCK, new every week.
