    Borussia Mönchengladbach rule out a winter transfer of their goalkeeper Yann Sommer to FC Bayern Munich. This was announced by sports director Roland Virkus.

    Accordingly, the Bundesliga club is said to have rejected a change from the Swiss, who was last associated with the German record champions. “We will not give up Yann Sommer. That’s what we told Bayern,” sporting director Roland Virkus told the “Rheinische Post” on Saturday.

    On Saturday, Gladbach won 2-0 (1-0) in the first test match of the winter preparations against third division side VfB Oldenburg without their regular goalkeeper Sommer. Coach Daniel Farke had already made a clear statement on this topic in advance. Regarding the change speculation, the coach replied that he “has no intention of giving him up. He is one of the top goalkeepers in Europe”.

    As announced, Farke did without Sommer when his team won. “Yann prefers to train for several weeks in preparation before playing again.” It is planned that he “will be used in the last two friendlies.” Instead, Tobias Sippel and Jan Olschowsky each played a half in goal for the Swiss.
