A transfer of the 35-time national player to VfL, threatened with relegation, was about to be completed last summer, but Olympiakos are said to have put a stop to it, not least with a high transfer fee. The “WAZ“ had already reported last week that the Greeks had rethinked the sporting record mentioned at the beginning and that the player was allowed to leave the club in winter. It’s “no secret that we still want to do something in central midfield,” said coach Thomas Letsch. The right foot is still a hot candidate in the Ruhr area as a supplement or backup for Captain Anthony Losilla, as Greek media are now reporting.

It seems clear: In Olympiakos’ squad, which currently consists of 40 professionals and is by far the largest in the Super League, Kunde currently has little or no sporting perspective.

The reigning Greek champions signed 19 new players in the summer (see overview), including Pep Biel, James Rodríguez, In-beom Hwang and Diadié Samassékou in midfield. VfL confirmed talks with customers about a change to date in a report by “table footballaccording to not. According to this, the club management is still convinced of the qualities of the Cameroonian, whose services cost Mainz 7.5 million euros in 2018. From the point of view of the club from the Ruhr area, a loan deal is preferred.
