Winning shot through team coach

Oliver Kahn and MAN congratulate champions BVB

A new MAN video clip sees the stars of German soccer team Borussia Dortmund (BVB) successfully complete a unique move: shooting the ball through the MAN team coach at the Westfalen stadium. The BVB players hit the winning shot under the watchful eye of a special soccer expert — goalkeeper legend Oliver Kahn stands in the stadium’s famous south stand and congratulates BVB on MAN’s behalf on winning the championship. “The team has an excellent season behind it. MAN is proud to be a BVB partner and with this clever clip congratulates them on winning the German championship,” said Frank H. Lutz, CFO of MAN SE.

MAN kann: BVB Jungs zeigen den Meisterschuss

Borussia Dortmund travels MAN. Following the successful “Brückenschuss” YouTube clip that was watched by over three million people in just a few days, the BVB players are using the MAN team coach for unique and skillful shots once again.

BVB star Sven Bender is sitting behind the wheel of the MAN Lion’s Coach and maneuvers it directly onto the pitch in the stadium together with his colleagues. Marcel Schmelzer takes a well-aimed shot at the ball, hurling it through the front door of the team coach, where Sven Bender, Jakub “Kuba” B┼éaszczykowski and Shinji Kagawa expertly play it through the coach. Kagawa powers the ball through the back door of the coach into the goal. BVB goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller just misses it and it hits the back of the net — the winning shot is a success. The highlight of the clip is the surprise appearance by goalkeeping giant Oliver Kahn, who congratulates BVB on its outstanding performance for the season and the championship title with a witty comment.
