Home-grown star Anne Matthes goes back to Dresden

Recently quite many players did leave DRESDNER SC to move to Europe’s Volleyball “Mecca”, Italy. Christiane Fürst started this exodus back in 2007 to be followed by Heike Beier, Corina Ssuschke and Anne Matthes.
However, club President Jörg Dittrich and head coach Alex Waibl were extremely excited to announce that Matthes is actually coming back to Dresden for the 2011/2012 season.
After spending a couple of years in Italy’s second division with teams from Forlì and Matera, Anne Matthes has signed a one-year contract with the club that will be debuting this year in Europe’s most elitist competition, the CEV Volleyball Champions League.
“We have always been in touch with Anne since she moved out from our club and everything just came together” explains Waibl. “As we got informed that Stephanie Kestner will be out until next January and Nicole Schröber is also not going to be fit before the start of the season, we were in a way forced to go for an emergency plan. We got green light from the administration of our club and Anne was additionally motivated by the opportunity to play the Champions League”.
Coach Waibl is certainly happy with this transfer and Matthes could also not hide her joy as she got to the premises of DRESDNER SC to sign her contract. “It’s great to be back. This time I was not focused on the financial side of the transfer. DRESDNER SC has got the whole package, and this is something that no other clubs can offer at the moment. I know the team and the background; the human side plays a very important role in this comeback. I am really looking forward to working with coach Waibl and I think I can improve further here”.
Matthes does not regret the time she spent in Italy, as there she has been learning a lot and turned into a more mature player. However, not everything is that good there: “The club in Matera has got financial problems and they still owe me some money”.
“I am excited about the upcoming weeks, with many games and the always packed Margon Arena” she says. As for the Champions League, “we want to show what we can do, and hopefully we can have our chances with one or two teams included in our Pool” she states.
“It is good that one of our stars is coming back, this is a big deal also for the image of our club” adds President Dittrich. “Our fans are excited about Anne’s comeback which was finalized through a couple of sponsors that have accepted to support our team”
