The latest FIFA World Cup finished two weeks ago. In fact, for many, it was the most remarkable they can remember. Remember Spain drawing with Cristiano, Belgium surprising Brazil, or the unexpected forerunner? For sure, these are just a few of the games not to forget.
Apparently, this was the case for former German football star Lothar Matthäus, too. According to the sports icon, it was the best World Cup in 40 years. From hindsight, the LeoVegas sports ambassador gave away some thoughts on the event. Both, on the sport itself, and the betting industry.
Best World Cup
Matthäus was the leader of the West German team who won the World Cup in 1990. As LeoVegas sports ambassador, he spent all five weeks of the event in Russia. He used most of his time giving away betting tips to sports fans. And judging by his comments, he did enjoy his time there.
Indeed, the first thing he highlighted was the hospitality of the locals. “Russians are warm and lovely people. We had good games. With great atmosphere on the sold-out stadiums,” he remembered. Simultaneously, he also mentioned the country felt safe. In addition, the local people were easy to connect with. “It was the best World Cup in 40 years,” he confirmed.
Importance of team work
But Matthäus also reflected on the latest event from his position at LeoVegas. But also, on the importance of everyone knowing its part in the Leo Vegas team at the event!
To sustain his claim, the former player pointed out the team spirit of cup winners France. At the same time, he compared it with the good feelings at the LeoVegas team working in Russia. “We walk together, like the French. We all know what we have to do. To make our brand better and more famous,” concluded Matthäus.
