1. FC Saarbrücken dissolves contract with Swede – acquitted of rape allegations

Retroactive to December

At the end of last year, Tobias Schwede was released from 1. FC Saarbrücken. With immediate effect, the full-back is officially out of the squad for promotion aspirants in the 3rd league. The club announced on Tuesday the agreement to dissolve the working paper. The FCS did not explain the conditions associated with this. Sweden’s contract was valid until 2024. The end of the cooperation will take effect retrospectively as of December 31, 2022.

Swede was charged in one case of communal rape, which FCS manager Rüdiger Ziehl confirmed in early December. That’s why the 29-year-old professional was released. He has now been acquitted. “It’s not an easy situation for him,” Ziehl was told at the time by the “Saarbruecker newspaperquoted. “It doesn’t make any sense for us that he continues to train with us.” With the termination of the contract, according to the club announcement, in which Swede was thanked for his commitment in the team, they hope “to enable both sides to make a fresh start”.
