    BERLIN, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Nicolas Feldhahn's role at Bayern Munich is rather unusual. While many young footballers dream of a career in the first team, the 29-year-old central defender is a sort of guide for talented youngsters in the club's second team. Bayern Munich employed him only for this very special job.

    "Even if you don't know whether you can make it or not, you have to try," Feldhahn said in a recent Xinhua Interview. "Youngsters need assistance, that is my job."

    The following is the full text of the interview.

    Xinhua: Developing young footballers is one of the main tasks of big football clubs. In that regard your job is a very special one. So please tell us: How closely are Bayern Munich's first and second teams linked together?

    Feldhahn: Younger second team players are often part of the senior squads training in order to practice tactical systems and to have enough for 11 against 11 games. So at Bayern Munich young players can often experience what it means to train with world class stars.

    Xinhua: Can you give us an idea as to what makes you the right man to guide youngsters on their way up to the top?

    Feldhahn: I'm what you can call an experienced third division player. I was playing for Osnabrueck in the third division when Bayern Munich's second team and youth coordinator Heiko Vogel rang me up. He told me what my job would be, to guide younger players. It sounded like a dream for me. I was born in the Munich area and my plans were to return anyway in the next years.

    Xinhua: You're the second oldest player in the second team squad and you're one of the leaders. Can you describe what your job is like exactly?

    Feldhahn: The age structure of Bayern Munich's second team is special. Most players are around 20 years old, only three - like me - are in the end of the 20s. We act like a link between coach Heiko Vogel and the younger players in the squad. We have close contact to Heiko Vogel and discuss a lot of things that could help younger players. On the pitch we try to help in different situations and give advice to younger players. On the other hand, we're a normal part of a team trying to be successful. It means we have to be careful with our advice. To give advice is one thing, the way you give it is another.

    Xinhua: That means you talk to these young guys after training too when you and the coach think that could help?

    Feldhahn: Yes, but it's nothing we plan a long time in advance. It is more a spontaneous thing. Meaning: I have a special situation in mind and we talk about it and try to deliver possible solutions.

    Xinhua: Does your job indicate that the pressure for young players is higher at a top club than at other clubs?

    Feldhahn: Young players get the impression of playing for a special club right from the beginning. When you tell people you play for Bayern Munich you get the attention of the people right away. In their minds is the thought of the first team and the millions of euro you can earn.

    Young players often can't avoid having similar thoughts which means they create a special pressure for themselves. But they in the first place have to have other thoughts. You have to take a close look at the possibilities you have at a club like this. You can train on a high level and practice with the stars and see how they do it. You have the possibility to listen to coaches like Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti. So it is up to you to deal with expectations you create for yourself.

    Xinhua: As you said young players get the possibility to work with world class coaches. Do they get the possibility to play as well?

    Feldhahn: We had several young players in our pre-season games such as the one against Manchester City. Like for the others, it was a dream for me to play against a team like that.

    Xinhua: From your experience: How big is the fear for youngsters of not making it?

    Feldhahn: If you compare yourself to other youngsters that have already made it, you create a certain amount of fear. Then you might start to say, why did they make it and I still have to try and wait despite the fact that I work that hard, as hard as the others.

    To try to make it into professional football requires a lot of patience. You have to consider how hard it is to make it and how high the quality at Bayern Munich is. As a young player it is nearly impossible to make it immediately. The gap is too big. So be patient and try and try and try. I know this does not sound like a convincin.
