For the latest episode of the FCPS Fan Owner Podcast (exclusively available to fan owners of FC Pinzgau Saalfelden), Tom Middler spoke to midfielder Niklas Seiler about facing his former club SV Wals-Grünau on Saturday, how his transfer to FCPS came about and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on last season. Here’s what our #5 had to say on…

…facing his former club SV Wals-Grünau:

“Of course I know the players over there, and it’s always a special feeling to face a team that you have played for. I still hang out with a few of them, but when you’re on the playing field there’s no fun and no friendships, it’s just about winning.”

…his transfer to FCPS:

“When I played for Wals-Grünau against Pinzgau, I had a pretty good 45 minutes. The next day, they called my father to ask if I was interested in joining!”

…life in Saalfelden:

“I was in Salzburg for five years and I wanted to move back home. I’m from Piesendorf, about 20 minutes away from here, and I got the chance to move in with my parents again!”

…the impact of the coronavirus pandemic:

“Two or three days before the first play-off match, they told us that there was no more season this year. It was strange, but we’re excited to play now, and I think we’re good to go. ”
