Anja Mittag ended her career in 2020 and played her last professional match with Rasenballsport Leipzig. Now the world champion from 2007 is back on the field – albeit in the amateur class.
Former international player Anya Mitag is back on the field more than a year and a half after her official farewell. According to a report by RB Live, the 36-year-old will play for regional league team SV Eintracht Leipzig-Süd.
The idea of playing a little more came to me only last September, October, said Maytag, who told Eintracht herself.
In the summer of 2020, the 2007 world champion ended her career. She’s been midday in training at her club since last fall. But the national player 158 times is still banned from appearing.
In addition to her duties for Eintracht Leipzig-Süd, Maytag will continue to serve as assistant coach for the second division team, Rasenballsport Leipzig. She played her last match as a professional with the RB team in May 2020.
