Hello, Steven. The first week of pre-season is almost over. How do you feel?
Steven Zuber: I am happy to be back to begin training more than anything else. I think I’ve started well and feel good.
Your 2015/16 season was ended by a head injury in training. Can you explain what happened?
Zuber: I don’t really know exactly. I what happened on video afterwards. It’s all in the past for me.
You were taken to the hospital very soon after…
Zuber: I spent two nights in hospital and was happy that I was able to go back home. I obviously felt much better there.
You went to Italy and France during your recovery. It looked like a successful trip from your Instagram account.
Zuber: Definitely. Me and my wife visited some friends. It was important for me to clear my head after last season. I was often injured. My wife was extremelyimportant during those periods – she was always by my side. She knows me well and was able to help. It was really nice.
When were you able to play sport again?
Zuber: That was two or three weeks after the injury. I came back and began to work intensely on getting fit ahead of the new season.
You returned to first team training last Sunday. Was it a special moment?
Zuber: It was confirmation for me above all. It showed me that I was back. That was the most important thing.
What is your personal aim for pre-season?
Zuber: I want to continue to develop but obviously my health definitely comes first. It comes above all else.
