There are romantic reasons for Singer's move to weingarts

Norbert hofmann has an almost infallible eye for young talent, for football players with prospects. Seen in this light, it is at least very close to elevation to the nobility when the former bundesliga professional from bayer uerdingen and coach of DJK weingarts makes intensive efforts to find a player who is not only dazzled by the perfect environment for a village club and the sports home, which is always kept in top condition.

From this point of view, andre singer from dormitz could actually be proud, because he is a member of the up-and-coming hofmann team, which is working intensively on its promotion in the district league 2. However, andre singer came to weingarts before hofmann, because at that time jens zweck – now SV gobweinstein – was still the coach of the "maigischer". The reason was, as it is so often the case, with the keyword "cherchez la femme" connected. Because andre singers girlfriend is in weingarts at home.
