Verena and Julian were childhood sweethearts. They married in 2018 in an intimate ceremony in Bavaria

Everything was going well until the pair decided to part ways after 15 years of togetherness. Hence, the pair split in 2022.

In February 2022, Julian revealed in an interview that Verena struggles to sleep at night because of his nocturnal habit of shouting out the names of Bayern Munich players. 

“My wife once told me that. Sometimes it wakes her up in the night,” he told the magazine via Bild.

The reason behind their split

The reason behind their split is believed to be his relationship with 30-year-old sports reporter Lena Wurzenberger

Soon after their split, Julian and Lena were spotted sharing a passionate kiss and embracing each other on the yacht off the coast in Ibiza in 2022

It is believed that Lena met Julian via her job as a journalist. 

They publicly appeared together in November 2022 on the Esquire Townhouse red carpet in Munich

They were further spotted enjoying a romantic vacation in New York in December of the same year. 

Lena, who worked for Germany's biggest newspaper, "Bild," resigned from her job in March 2023.

She is the mother of two

Verena is the mother of two kids, a son and a daughter, whom she shares with Julian. They welcomed their son Maximilian in 2015 and a daughter in 2020

Julian had always praised Verena for her incredible support. 

While receiving the DFB Coach of the Year in 2016, he credited Verena for having his back so much that he could fully concentrate on his job. 

He also expressed he could take his hat off to being a wonderful mother to their adorable child whom she mostly raises as a single parent.


She is 35 years old.

Julian had to pay a high cost because of his relationship with the reporter

Julian had to pay a high cost because of his relationship with the reporter.

Despite his 71.4 % rate at Bayern Munich, he was sacked from his post in March 2023.

When the sacking was announced, he was on a skiing holiday in Australia with the reporter. 

Former Bayern Munich Ace Markus Babbel claimed that his relationship with the reporter created trust issues at the club. 

In an interview with The Blick, he said he knew his relationship with the Bild reporter was a huge topic of discussion in the dressing room and that it didn't go over well at all that he was with her. 

He also said his girlfriend was a big problem for Bayern, explaining that there was a lack of trust because some players weren't able to communicate what they were thinking anymore, fearing that it would end up in the newspaper.

Julian had to make a lot of decisions early on that made him mature and grown

Julian was just 20 years old when he was forced to end his playing career following his cruciate ligament damage. 

Six months later, he lost his father to suicide. 

Julian, in an interview, revealed his father was an operative for Germany’s federal intelligence service, and since there was no sharing of worries in his job, it became too much for him. 

The hardest part of dealing with the grief was his father not leaving a suicide note. 

There was no explanation, but the way he took his life made it clear that his decision was clear to him, he said.

His responsibilities early on with all the administrative duties made him more mature and grow up quicker in his life. 

The debt of his father was a huge topic in his life. 

He had to make a lot of decisions regarding what he was going to do next, decisions for his family, his mother, and his siblings, which, according to him, was not easy, but it helped him to develop his character and his personality as a young boy. 

It was a hard period of his life, he said.
