JOHNNY ERTL: MY FIRST...

25 May 2014

CLUB
I joined SV Feldkirchen when I was 11 and I was a midfielder back then as well.

MATCH AS A FAN
It was Sturm Graz against Innsbruck. I’ve always been a Sturm Graz fan and thankfully we won the match 2-1, so it was a good day for me.

PROFESSIONAL GAME
That was with Sturm Graz in a match against Austria Vienna, but unfortunately we lost 3-0.

FOOTBALL KIT
The first one I had was the Sweden kit, but I’m not really sure why I got it. They did have a fantastic spell in the World Cup in 1994, so it was probably because of that.

SINGLE
I’m afraid to say that I can’t remember what the first song I bought was.

FILM AT THE CINEMA
I’m not sure if it was the first, but I remember going to watch Braveheart. I was really impressed by it and it’s still at the top of my list.

CAR
A VW Vento. It was a pretty old car, but it served a purpose. I’m not really into cars as much as some people are, so it was perfect for me.

MEMORY OF WANTING TO BE A FOOTBALLER
I knew from a very early age. I played in the garden with my brother all the time after school. There wasn’t really anything else I ever wanted to do.
