Thomas Konrad On 13 July 2014, Konrad appeared as a trialist for Dundee in their pre-season fixture against Manchester City doing enough to impress manager Paul Hartley who expressed a desire to offer the player a contract Konrad and his compatriot Luka Tankulić subsequently signed two-year contracts with Dundee in July 2014. Konrad left Dens Park at the end of the 2015–16 season. 1 We seen yourself and Luka line up as trialists in the man city game when did you first hear of Dundee's interest? It was one day before the training camp in Hungary. My agent called me, and told me there is a chance to go on a trial at a Scottish Premiership Club. I accepted it, and met Luka at the airport for the first time. I think we did well... and straight after the Man City Game, John Nelms and Paul Hartley told us they want to sign us asap. 2 What was it about Dundee that made you want to sign? First of all, I liked how the club treated us when we were over from Germany the first time. They took care of everything for us and everyone was really nice. Added to this, the team was class. We had a few really, really good players and I enjoyed playing at Dens when we played Man City. It was a really easy decision for me to sign the contract. 3 You had over 60 apps for the club which was most memorable for you? Yes, 69 games in 2 years is not too bad. I am really happy with that. There were some very special games, which I probably won't forget. Of course, the 3-1 vs United at the 8th of April 2015 was one of the most memorable games. First win for Dundee after a decade without a win against United. The atmosphere at Dens, unbelievable You felt on the pitch that this was something special. Also the 2-2 at Tannadice, when Big Jazza scored the equalizer in the last minute of the game. I am still getting goosebumps, when I watch these videos. Great memories. And the 1-0 victory over St. Johnstone. I made my first goal for Dundee and kept a clean sheet. Not a bad day 4 You played most of your career in Germany did it take you long to adjust to the Scottish game? Not really, I enjoyed playing that style of football from day one. 5 For you as a player what was it like to also play in team with Hemming and Stewart? Of course, you could see that they are special players. Especially Greg. I really enjoyed playing with these guys, because it was tough every training and I think I improved as a defender through that. I tried my best every day to defend them two in training, but I also had to be very careful not to hurt them. They scored all the goals every Saturday that was a bit of a dilemma. 6 What was it like to play alongside Darren O'Dea? Yeah, Darren... He was not the fastest player I've ever played with to be honest But what a guy he is. Great guy, great leader, a perfect captain and a fantastic defender. And he is really funny as well. I think we had a really good partnership. 7 Other than Luka who were you closest to.in you time at Dens? Scott Bain, Jules, Nick Ross and Kevin Holt. 8 Who had been your best manager and captain to work under? Best manager was probably Josef Zinnbauer. He was my Coach when I played for the 2nd team at Karlsruher SC. I don't think I lost a game with him in charge. Best Captain, hm I don't know. That's hard to say. 9 Do still keep in contact with any of the boys from your time at Dens? Yeah, I am still in contact with Nick Ross. Funniest guy in Dundee haha. 10 You currently play for Fc Vaudz how is your season going at present? To be honest, hard relegation battle. But I think the team is good enough to stay in the League. We played FC Basel (1-1) last week, and we deserved to win that game. If we keep that standard, we will stay in the league. I am really happy here, it's closer to Germany and I think the move to Switzerland was the perfect next step in my career.
