Mönchengladbach (dpa) – Former national footballer Patrick Herrmann wants to end his professional career with Borussia Mönchengladbach and stay connected with the club beyond.
When asked what he would like for the negotiations before his contract expires in 2022, the 29-year-old told the “Rheinische Post”, “I would like it to be a contract for life.”
Herrmann moved in 2008 at the age of 17 from the youth team of 1. FC Saarbrücken to Borussia. “So it will be my 13th season and my eleventh as a professional. That’s really cool,” said the attacking player. “If I had the choice, I would not leave Borussia and stay with the club after my active career. Everyone knows how comfortable I feel here. We are doing very well privately in the city, we are also just building a house in the city. I want to settle here. “
After his professional career, “he could imagine working as a youth coach, for example. Or in marketing and sponsoring,” said Herrmann. The fact that he is not part of the six-member team council is no problem for him: “I’m more the type who creates a good atmosphere and not the one who can negotiate different things for the team. That’s not my thing, I’m too nice for that not strong enough. “
