On January 22, the M மோnchengladbach Union in Borussia Dortmund welcomes Marvin Friedrich of Berlin to his former club: the 26-year-old central defender will immediately switch from Ion to Foles, signing him until 2026. On Tuesday, Portugal made the pledge that had already begun.
Frederick, who has been out of action since the summer of working for the Union, is set to close the long gap left by national player Matthias Ginder on the back of the Gladbach for the new season. “We are very pleased to have succeeded in bringing to Borussia a central defender who has made a great track in Berlin over the past few years and has grown into one of the best German defenders in the league,” said Sports Director Max Eberl.
“The last few years have been indescribable and will never be forgotten,” Friedrich was quoted as saying in a statement from the Berliners who regretted their vice – captain’s departure: “Marvin Friedrich’s departure is certainly a great loss. Says Oliver Ruhnert, Managing Director. Now both sides have to move on to the new path. Ruhnert: “We and our team are ready for that.”
The union have already signed a new central defender at Dominic Hendz (Freiburg), but may skip another one in January: he is in a loan dispute with summer newcomer Rick von Tronglen, who has yet to play a competitive game for the union.
Friedrich moved from FC Augsburg to Berlin four years ago, having previously had professional experience at FC Schalke 04. Last season, Cassell was one of the Bundesliga’s best defenders (34 appearances, five goals, two assists, and a kicker average of 3.03). In 2021/22 he has played in 13 games so far (no scorer, kicker grade average 3.38). He will finish 14th in the Gladbach jersey. Already on Saturday (6.30pm, live! On kicker) he will be available to his new coach Adi Hooter.
