“This is such an embarrassing story that I hesitate to tell it! It started with a tweet. I only had a few thousand followers at the time, because I was still on loan at Werder Bremen.
"So I tweeted something about a match or whatever, and this pretty girl favourited it.
“I was single at the time, and my friend noticed it. So he said, ‘She looks like a nice girl, no? You should send her a message.’
“So he grabbed my phone and started tapping out a message. He showed me the phone and said, 'Come on, can I hit send?'
“But thankfully, he sent the message for me, and she responded. We got to know each other over text for a few months. It's a lot easier for me once I get to know someone, so after that, I was good.”
