#8 Benny Lauth Teil 1: So war das damals mit Ian Ayre

Radis Erben - der Löwen-Podcast

Benny Lauth ist einer von Radis Erben beim TSV 1860. Der einstige Publikumsliebling stand unserem Podcast über 90 Minuten inklusive Nachspielzeit zur Verfügung - heute kommt der erste von drei Teilen, in dem der 38-Jährige neben den Auswirkungen der Corona-Krise auf den Fußball u.a. über seine Fast-Rückkehr zu den Löwen unter Ian Ayre spricht. Er sollte dem Engländer in der Geschäftsführung assistieren. "Die Position wäre sehr spannend gewesen - wie von Marcel Schäfer in Wolfsburg. Doch dann war Ian Ayre auch schon wieder weg..." Der TSV 1860 stieg 2017 in die Regionalliga ab und damit war auch das Angebot an Lauth hinfällig. Seitdem hat er nichts mehr von den Löwen gehört.
