Mainz striker criticized by the coach

    Jonathan Burkardt (21) probably just spoke of the scenario of another contract extension. About the idea of ​​staying at Mainz 05 after 2024. Not of a possible exit this summer. However, the young professional was immediately shown that the striker’s statements in the “Kicker” interview can also be read at least between the lines as emerging thoughts of a change. Also from an apparently scratched coach Bo Svensson.

    “I spoke to him about the fact that he should word it differently in the future,” Svensson said (quoted via “picture‘) and left it at that. After all, Mainz has all the trumps in their hands. “But the fact is,” emphasized the coach on the subject of Burkardt, “that he still has two years of contract – and we are absolutely planning with him because he will also be a key player for the coming season!”

    When asked about his “future decision”, the player emphasized that it was also based on the “sporting perspective next season”. After that, where he is “best kept”. That could “of course also be very, very good in Mainz.” Burkardt said: “I have a contract in Mainz and I just haven’t even thought about the next season yet. I will do that in the next few weeks.” For this, Burkardt, who the magazine believes is “leaving a back door open”, wants to get together with his advisor Thomas Kroth (Agency Pro Profil) in good time. The views of family members are also important.

    Svensson an “aspect” for Burkardt – Will the Mainzer jump on the World Cup train?

    Coach Svensson does not seem to have been clear enough whether Burkardt means the next season or the development of the coming season with the 05ers with “future decision”, although Burkardt also raised his coach to an “aspect that speaks for Mainz” – one Coach who “knows me, knows how to use me. Bo Svensson uses me centrally on offense. Before that I played a lot on the outside or even a couple of times on the right back. And I also notice in my day-to-day work that he knows me inside out, so he knows exactly what I can still do to improve further.”

    The U21 European champion has already come into the focus of national coach Hansi Flick, but unlike his teammate Anton Stach (23), it was not enough for a nomination recently. That’s why the most valuable German non-national player is cautious about his chances of jumping on the World Cup train.

    “That depends on how I start the next season,” said Burkardt, who most recently led the U21s as captain. “It’s all about my own performance anyway. I don’t think about how I can get to the World Cup or whether it might have been more difficult at a World Cup in the summer, that’s not in my head.”
