Another big change at the end of the season!
96 finally wants continuity in the future – and this summer they are turning everything inside out again. The new coach (Stefan Leitl) and four new ones (Phil Neumann, Fabian Kunze, Max Besuschkow, Enzo Leopold) have already been determined. Coach Christoph Dabrowski, assistant Garip Capin and eight players leave the Reds.
This is how the XXL farewell on Sunday works!
Admission to the arena is from 1.30 p.m. There are still plenty of tickets, 96 expects 19,000 spectators (including 750 from Ukraine). Children can look forward to a colorful family program (soccer court, football darts, goal wall, wheel of fortune and bouncy castle). After the game there’s happy hour up north.
After the game, in addition to Dabrowski and Capin, eight professionals are also said goodbye. Linton Maina (moves to Cologne), Captain Marcel Franke (Karlsruhe), Niklas Hult, Philipp Ochs, Marlon Sünermann, Marc Lamti, Mike Frantz and Dominik Kaiser. The ex-captain wants to decide in the summer whether to end his career or look for a new club.
The borrowed Maxi Beier (Hoffenheim) and Mark Diemers (Feyenoord) should not receive any flowers. Beier should definitely continue to be loaned out. “It is well known that we would like to keep him,” says sporting director Marcus Mann. The future of Diemers is “still open”.
