VIDEO: Arminia Bielefeld assistant coach Carsten Rump deliver epic team talk

Bundesliga 2 side DSC Arminia Bielefeld went into their penultimate match of the season against Eintracht Braunschweig on Sunday needing a win to avoid relegation.

Bielefeld pulled a huge upset as they romped to a 6-0 win over Braunschweig, who are at the verge of gaining promotion to the Bundesliga.

The atmosphere at the SchücoArena in Bielefeld was electrifying as I was able to experience myself, while assistant coach Carsten Rump’s immense motivational team talk before kick-off pushed the home side to a win which can be described as epic.

The team talk went viral on Monday all over Germany and it is one of these special football videos which will give you goose bumps.

Transcript of the team talk
„OK boys! Listen up! 25,000 are out there and are waiting for you all to explode. 25,000! They are praying to God that you push yourself, you light it up! Boys, but there is a more important point. When you go home you can turn this off with the help of your wives, your kids, your girlfriends. Everything! At home, you can turn off everything that happens here! And they are always there for you. Always! Everyday at home! But today they are in the stands and pray to God that you light it up! That’s why Katrin is here and recording this so that we can send it to your wives right before the game. And now you need to promise me that you will give it your all for your family! Throughout the 90 minutes. For your family! For your kids! You’ll go out there and work hard from the beginning until the end. We will win this game, can you promise me that?“ – „YEEEEEEEEAH!“
