Gabriel Clemens: I hear it all the time. But that’s just not my music.

Clemens: In the end, you’re right – especially with regard to the audience. But I think it is perfectly in order. I was even sometimes spectators, and I celebrated. We, players, are now but very professional, working with coaches and sports psychologists. Apart from that, it is of course perfectly fine that people do there is Party.
Marijanovic: For the audience, it is a Party, but for the players. Who thinks the should be a couple of months with me and “Gaga” on-the-go and the many hours on Board spend. Then you realize that it is not always fun.

You, Mr. Clemens, to have reached in may, a final on the PDC Tour, and only just against Gary Anderson lost. Martin Schindler has played several semi-finals. What is for the Germans at the world Cup?
Marijanovic: It used to be said, it would still take years for a German to the top. But if you look at the results, everything is in there. I wouldn’t be surprised if Max Martin or “Gaga” in the quarter-finals. Also, a German in the semi-finals would be no big surprise.
MIRROR ONLINE: also, you Can be this Surprise?
Marijanovic: Rather not, but I’ll do my Best.
Clemens: Robbie should not take out of it. I trust him a lot.

MIRROR ONLINE: time for vacation?
Marijanovic: not This year.
MIRROR ONLINE: What do you do more with Darts or the day job?

Clemens: , After taxes and other costs, I’ve earned Darts about as much as I earn in my profession full-time. I could live with this year, so of Darts.
MIRROR ONLINE: What would have to happen in order for you to give up your Job?
Marijanovic: is A super result at the world Cup maybe. If I knew the money will be enough for a couple of years. Or is it someone who believes in me, and me for two years funded. But it is difficult, “Gaga” and I come from the southern part of Germany. Since much is outside of the normal profession as a reverie.
Clemens: I am 35, standing in the middle of your professional life. The Elevator is not easy. This risk is not in my nature. If I was early 20’s, I would try just two, three years.
MIRROR ONLINE: you Have a Manager?
Clemens: I got my girlfriend, who does all the work for me. As a full-time professional, a Manager might make sense, if you then play Exhibitions.
