The identifying figures Lars Stindl and Tony Jantschke remain loyal to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Sports director Max Eberl showed that he could agree on a further collaboration with the duo.
Borussia Mönchengladbach has extended the contracts with captain Lars Stindl and defensive all-rounder Tony Jantschke each for two years until the summer of 2023. “We are very pleased to have Lars with Borussia for two more years. He is the best player, leader and head of our team ”, sports director Max Eberl said on Friday.
The 32-year-old Stindl had only prevented Borussia from being defeated on Tuesday with his three goals at 3: 3 at Eintracht Frankfurt. The ex-national player is Gladbach’s most successful goalscorer so far this season with seven goals. “I have already asked if he had renegotiated the last time after his goals. But it was all in the towel,” Gladbach coach Marco Rose said jokingly.
Stindl and Jantschke’s previous contracts would have expired in the summer. An agreement has also been reached with 30-year-old Jantschke about continuing his career at Borussia after his active career. “Borussia has long since become my second home and I am proud to have been playing for this club for over 14 years,” said Jantschke, who moved to the Lower Rhine in 2006 at the age of 16. This makes him the longest serving Borussian from the current team.
Conversations with Elvedi, Ginter and Zakaria
“Both are important players for Borussia. They are important to us as types and determine the atmosphere in the team,” said Rose.
Eberl also confirmed he was talking to Nico Elvedi, Matthias Ginter and Denis Zakaria. The contracts of all three internationally sought-after service providers expire in 2022. “These are tasks we have to do. But nothing will happen between Christmas and New Year,” said Eberl.
