Kruse is not an issue at Gladbach

    Borussia Mönchengladbach’s sporting director Roland Virkus has announced a decision to extend goalkeeper Yann Sommer’s contract. “Yann has an offer. We also spoke well, it has to be said. There’s a decision after the World Cup,” Virkus said on the podcast.With thought“. The working paper of Sommer, who is currently taking part in the World Cup in Qatar with the Swiss national team, expires next summer.

    “I can’t say in which direction this is going,” Virkus said, adding, “It’s really like I’m saying fifty-fifty. Why? Not because the club doesn’t want to give Yann any prospects. Yann knows very well that he is a very important component of our management structure. But you also have personal goals. Maybe you want to play at another club after all. Maybe you want to get another championship somewhere. He has to weigh all of that.”

    With a market value of 5 million euros, Sommer is the most valuable goalkeeper in the Bundesliga with a contract ending in 2023. As with the Swiss, the contracts of top striker Marcus Thuram and left-back Ramy Bensebaini will expire next summer. According to Virkus, it is still unclear whether one of the two or even both top performers will leave Borussia this winter and bring the club a fee. The 55-year-old explained that there are still no offers for either of the professionals. Overall, the “foals” could lose players with a total value of over 75 million euros. For comparison: The current squad is worth 225.2 million euros.

    Kruse’s return campaign “currently doesn’t play a role” in Gladbach’s considerations

    The former Gladbacher Max Kruse, whose contract with VfL Wolfsburg was terminated on Monday, is currently not an issue at Borussia. “Max is a good player, no question about it, but he is currently not playing a role in our considerations,” said Virkus.

    The 34-year-old former international was sorted out by coach Niko Kovac in early September and has not played a game for the “Wolves” since then. The VfL officials accused him of a lack of professionalism and a bad influence on the rest of the team. From 2013 to 2015, Kruse played 77 times for the “foals” and was directly involved in 47 goals during this time.
