Marco Grull is one of the few players who did not come through an academy. Instead he fought his way up from the third division all the way to professional football. He says it did him good: "At 14, I trained with adults in the first team. I think it makes you grow up a bit faster mentally, thinking about things differently. In the regional league, I then played with former professionals; you just learn different things than in an academy." Apart from his football, he worked in a sports shop and needed to ask for time off for away games. His breakthrough came at Ried and has been on Ralf Rangnick's radar since his move to Rapid in 2021. Grüll is a nimble, fast, and skillful winger, distinguished especially by his fearlessness: "I am afraid of nothing," he says. Was embroiled in controversy this year after being filmed singing a homophobic chants after a derby victory against Wiener Austria. He and the other players were dropped from the national team. “It was a huge error, I am very sorry,” he said. Is joining Werder Bremen this summer.
