Gladbach’s Matthias Ginter would like to speak with Max Eberl

“It’s amazing what he did for me”
Borussia’s Ginter wants to talk to Eberl

Matthias Ginter does not let his cards look at, but denies that a switch from Borussia Mönchengladbach to FC Bayern has already been decided. The central defender also commented on Max Eberl, as disagreements had arisen shortly before Eberl’s resignation.

Matthias Ginter is about to make a decision. His contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach is about to expire, and it has been clear for some months that he no longer has a future on the Lower Rhine. The national player has had similar time to think about what change goal he is pursuing for the transfer window this summer. Ginter apparently does not want to rule anything out and is at least outwardly flexible.

“Whether it is at home or abroad, it is open at the moment. There are different possibilities, and I myself am curious which one it will be in the end, “says Ginter, who meets Israel in a test match with the German national team on Saturday night, in an interview with” Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland “. For tactical reasons alone and in times of unpredictable transfer market, it makes perfect sense for the central defender not to close doors.

Most recently, the 28-year-old spent the long weekend and Monday without training for Gladbach after the 2-0 victory in VfL Bochum to get on the plane with his agent Dirk Pietroschinsky and his wife Christina. The route was not known, and yet it is clear that Ginter is currently dealing intensively with his shift. The free burger makes no secret of the fact that he has already exchanged views with national coach Hansi Flick about a switch.

A transfer to FC Bayern Munich, who should see Ginter as a possible replacement for Niklas Süle, has not yet been decided. “I do not know where the rumors come from that a move to Bayern Munich is safe. I have not made a decision about my future yet. It will probably take a few more weeks,” said Ginter. The 2014 world champion refused a deal , but not the basic contact with the record holder.

Ginter describes his time in Gladbach as “unique”. Asked about the unrest in Borussia in the last few months, he said: “I did not feel that kind of bustle. These many construction sites, also outside the sporting side, certainly did not help the track to improve.” This included the departure of Max Eberl, who in December last year informed Ginter and his consulting firm that he was planning without Ginter from the summer, but had not previously commented on a contract offer he had received. Ginter did not want anything against a future meeting with Eberl, which could lead to a discussion.

“I would definitely like that. He fought for me in Freiburg and then got me from BVB. It was sensational what he did for me, for us, in the first few years, he always sat in front of the team, “said Ginter, hoping Borussia would leave the club as Denis Zakaria in the winter to charge a transfer fee. In hindsight, Ginter does not blame himself. “Of course I asked myself this question, and I’m a self-critical type. But honestly, when I look back, I do not know what I could have done differently.”

At Borussia, he has played 175 competitive matches so far, his market value is currently estimated at 24 million euros, making him the most valuable player in Gladbach. “Everything went really well for a long time,” Ginter said. “We had a great team, a great coach, great fans, a great environment. I have always emphasized that and could therefore clearly imagine staying in Gladbach. Unfortunately, things have changed since last summer,” Ginter added. After five years, Gladbach and he will separate this summer.
