It’s a very special game for him!
In Düsseldorf, of all places, Luka Krajnc (27) returns to the 96 starting eleven. The defender made 24 games (2 goals) for Fortuna last season.
Whistle alarm for Krajnc!
“He will certainly not be welcomed with open arms,” suspects sports director Marcus Mann (37). And hopes that the whistles of the Fortuna fans will motivate him: “It used to spur me on, I liked it.”

Krajnc was loaned from Frosinone (Italy) in 2020/21. The Dusseldorf wanted to sign him firmly in the summer, but 96 sports director Marcus Mann (37) won the race against Fortuna’s sports director Klaus Allofs (64).
Krajnc: “Hannover just tried harder, pushed the transfer more.”
At 96, Krajnc finally wants to take off with a delay. In his debut in Darmstadt (0: 4) as a substitute, he scored an own goal. First of all, he was in the starting line-up – at 3-0 in Kiel for Marcel Franke, who fell ill overnight.
Because Julian Börner (30 / torn muscle) is absent for three weeks, he can start again on his sixth 96 appearance.
Trainer Jan Zimmermann: “He makes a calm and stable impression. He already solved this very confidently in Kiel. I am firmly convinced that he will seamlessly build on it. “
