Werner before the election: renewal or goodbye

Signature or farewell: The converted national football player Timo Werner will not play another season at the BundesLigista RB Leipzig without prior contract renewal.

“We must logically know how to proceed no later than the end of the season. Because, of course, an association like us cannot afford to go with Timo Werner to a final year of the contract,”Managing Director Oliver Mintzlaff explained in a conversation with the”kicker.” All parties would have “the same understanding”.

Werner at RB Leipzig “well cancelled”

Werner’s contract runs up to 30. June 2020, after that, the goalie would be relieved. The 22-year-old has been associated with top clubs such as the Bayern Munich Record Master. Mintzlaff still hopes to remain Werners.

“It makes sense for such a player to be overthrown by clubs that have a very different sporting perspective and quite different financial possibilities than we do. But as long as we continue to develop as an association, and there the Champions League participation would of course be very helpful, I think Werner is still well off with us,”said the Managing Director:”If Timo does not now strive for the highest possible salary, Then it would be a good investment for him in his sporting future.”

Mintzlaff about new entrances and Forsberg comeback

The testimony of the players Nordi Mukiele (21), Marcelo Saracchi (20) and Matheus Cunha (19) committed in the summer falls out after the round, Mintzlaff conceded. Although the club would have calculated a certain period of acclimatisation, but “of course we would all have liked things to have gone a little faster,” said the manager.

Mintzlaff has hope for the return of gamemaker Emil Forsberg.” Emil is making good progress on the latest medical findings. We are optimistic that he will be able to train with the team in January,”said the RB leader about Sweden, who contested his last game for the Saxons at the beginning of October.
