I had an incredibly great time at VfB, have played in the youth here, then I turned pro and recently been the captain. I have always said that I am a VfBler and that I will remain."[66]

However, his World Cup debut was a much dissapointment, as Tasci struggled to touch a ball in his 125 seconds on the pitch, which the club's sporting director Jochen Schneider quoted: "But for Serdar Tascithe World Cup from a purely personal point of view was certainly not satisfactory."[83]
