Lothar Matthaus vows to return to action if he gets a million Facebook likes
Germany legend Lothar Matthaus has said he will resume his playing career – at the age of 52 – if he gets one million likes on his Facebook page.
The 150-cap international has seen his budding managerial career grind to a halt in recent seasons, so is now considering playing once again.
He posted a photo in which he was holding a piece of paper reading: “For one million likes, I go back to playing.”
Given that he’s currently sat on 72,000 likes, a comeback is still quite a distant prospect at the moment.
