Episode 2: Pernille Harder – Your coach today is Pernille Harder, captain of reigning Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg and the league’s top scorer with an incredible tally of 22 goals in 15 matches. Pernille has led Wolfsburg to resounding success winning the league and cup double for three successive seasons. The team has now resumed training, and Pernille provides us with exclusive insight into the logistics involved and the moral dilemma of returning to action since the sports shutdown was put into effect due to the Covid-19 sports shutdown. Captain of both a club and a national team, Pernille scored a goal which would make Messi smile in the final of the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro. In this episode, you will also learn how a touch of Messi confidence was passed on from Pernille's inspiring grandfather. Off the pitch, Pernille Harder brings as much pleasure as she does on it, signing up to Juan Mata’s common goal charity by donating a percentage of her salary to good causes.
