Union Berlin: Levin Öztunali dares to start over

Permanent assignment for newcomer Levin Öztunali (25). At the test matches in Austria, he was the only regular place candidate to play both times.

Against Dynamo Kiev (1: 1), the midfielder from Mainz was in the starting line-up. He acted on the left for 67 minutes in the heat. In the 2-0 win against OGC Nice, he was substituted on after 67 minutes.

If Öztunali has his way, he also wants to play as often as possible in the competitive games – but there are many competitors.

Öztunali: “I played eighth and right winger. In the chain of five also on the right. I’m flexible. We have a lot of games. “

Hopefully there will be numerous games in the Uefa Conference League in addition to the league and the DFB-Pokal …

Incidentally, the 170-time Bundesliga player (for Leverkusen, Bremen and Mainz, 12 goals, 25 assists) doesn’t want to talk about the fact that he is the grandson of HSV legend Uwe Seeler (84): “In the end, it’s about me and Union . “

The fifth and final season in Mainz was difficult (only 17 games). The all-rounder: “It was scored without me. That’s how it goes in football sometimes. “

This is one of the reasons why Öztunali dares to start over at Union.

He says: “The first impression is consistently positive. I’ve already found an apartment near the stadium. ”And further:“ At Union you saw that they go their own way, have a clear plan and play successfully. I would like to do my part. “

Then nothing stands in the way of restarting …
