And he has revealed that his stunning wife Norina would help him through pre-season training by putting on his heart rate monitor during fitness tests.

Kiessling told Bild: "I never did 100 per cent of the exercises in the preparation periods, not once.

"You get a heart rate monitor on which all runs are saved.

"As my wife is very athletic, she did some racing with the wristband according to my specs.

"She did it so well that nobody noticed."

That is not to say that six-cap Germany international Kiessling was a slouch in his playing days.

He claims he was "always in the lead" when he got back on the training pitch ahead of a new season.

Kiessling retired at the end of last season and is now working under Rudi Voller as assistant sporting director at Leverkusen.

The club's supporters put on a massive mosaic of his face with the word "DANKE" in massive lettering when he retired in May, such was his standing at the Bundesliga club.
