After the last home game against FC Oberneuland (4-0), “Lammi” left his future open and said when asked: “We are in talks.” After that, things happened very quickly.

“The team has developed over the last six months and has become a unit. It’s fun to work with the boys and the coaching staff. I can go on like the second half of the season went,” he said to the LN.

Lambach is in his third season with Phönix Lübeck

The 30-year-old moved to the Hanseatic city in July 2020 via the stations SC Langenhagen, BSV Rehden, TuS Celle FC, VFC Plauen, VfB Auerbach, BFC Dynamo and HSC Hannover and is thus starting his third season with the Eagles, for which he played 38 games. He scored his only goal so far in the Phoenix outfit on March 5th in a 4-1 win against former club Rehden. The veteran (225 regional league appearances) shines with other qualities, is an iron-hard and strong sprint clearer or the epitome of the rustic defensive game like Guido Buchwald and Dieter Eilts once did.

The great role model is Gennaro Gattuso

His role model is former Italy international Gennaro “Rino” Gattuso. With risky tackles and countless private duels, he proves that he goes to the limits of what is permitted for his team, if not even beyond. “Björn is a long-distance runner, very unpleasant for the opponents. We value him for his uncompromising way of playing football,” says sporting director Frank Salomon about the contract extension. “He shows that not only in the games, but also in training. He’s a huge asset. It quickly became clear that he wanted to stay here. You can tell he’s having fun with us.”

Fitness, character and versatility

The family feels right at home in Bad Schwartau. The son Erik, who was born in March, also keeps the fitness freak busy. “I’m happy to have him in the team,” said coach Oliver Zapel recently about the universal player. “He’s a recognized regular, popular with the team and fitting into the club’s climate. He’s got incredible fitness and character. He’s like a HB male, a player with a very special attitude. I haven’t had a training session yet experienced where he only gives 99 percent. Such players are very rare.”
