Thanks to the support of 3C-Carbon Group AG, TSV Landsberg was able to land a transfer coup of the first order. After the main sponsor had released additional financial resources in a considerable amount, the Bayernliga club signed cult striker Sascha Mölders for the coming season. He will be a player-coach in the 2022/23 season.
"Sascha Mölders has already signed with us for the 2022/23 season," says Basti Gilg, head of football department at the Bayernliga club. "Together with our sporting director Jürgen Meissner, we have been in talks for quite some time and are of course delighted that it has now worked out."
The concept Mölders presented "fits us super", Meissner said. "It should bring us forward significantly in one fell swoop, and not just in attack. And for every football fan in the region, it's a great thing to be able to see such a top-class player in Landsberg. We were in constant contact. TSV can now look forward to a very strong coaching team with Mike Hutterer and Sascha Mölders."
Mölders himself says about the change: "It was clear that Großaspach is only a stopover for me and that I want to be close to home and regional again. With TSV Landsberg, the perfect opportunity has arisen." However, the striker is not only switching to TSV because of the close proximity to his home in Mering. "Landsberg has a concept that I like. Something is to be created here in the long term, and I would like to play my part. I think that with my many years of experience, also from higher leagues, I can definitely help, even with my 37 years."
The signing was ultimately made possible by TSV's main sponsor, 3C-Carbon Group AG. "We see the excellent networking and solid work of the sporting management at our sponsoring partner," said 3C boss Karsten Jerschke. "In order to take TSV Landsberg further on its chosen path and certainly to significantly strengthen the team with Sascha Mölders once again, we have gladly agreed to help with a considerable additional sum."
Head of department Gilg appreciates this: "We know very well what we have in our long-standing partner 3C-Carbon. The type and extent of the support that we have once again received quickly and unbureaucratically is anything but a matter of course. We are grateful for this and very confident that we will be able to give something back accordingly with attractive and successful games."
The qualities of centre-forward Sascha Mölders should be well known to every football fan. Born in Essen, Mölders made his mark in the history books as the scorer of FC Augsburg's first goal in the Bundesliga. After 103 Bundesliga games, in which he scored 18 goals and provided 3 assists, he moved to TSV 1860 Munich, where he also became a "cult striker" and fan favourite in six years thanks to his outstanding fighting commitment. Mölders played 528 games (222 goals, 67 assists) in his long career in all leagues. He is currently with Großaspach in the Regionalliga Südwest and has already scored 5 goals in 9 appearances there.
Mölders, who has already held various positions as a coach in the youth and senior teams (including at his home in Mering) alongside his professional career since 2014, is expected to bring along his long-time companion Martin Weiderer as a co-coach, who will coach from the sidelines during matches.
The signing of the illustrious name was made in close consultation with Mike Hutterer, who is to remain the responsible player-coach. Mölders is already in regular contact with him and has already introduced himself to the team in the dressing room. He has also taken the time to pay a first visit to the headquarters of the 3C-Carbon Group AG in Landsberg.
