MEANWHILE, IN GERMANY: The weirdest pre-season ‘training’ ever!! - The Werder Bremen Pony race
The likes of Marko Marin, Tim Wiese, Markus Rosenberg and Clemens Fritz were some of the lucky few to take part. Claudio Pizarro returned late from Peru so missed out participating in said race but did get there in time to watch his team mates look rather silly.
A crazy race, in which some of the ponies had trouble keeping to a straight line, ended with keeper Tim Wiese as the winner over 600 metres.
