Union, VfB, Gladbach: Leweling awakens interest

Stefan Leitl stood before the kick -off and after his official farewell in front of the fan curve, speaking choirs with his name echoed him. More than his upcoming farewell weighs what Leitl has done in Fürth in three and a half years. Sports director Rachid Azzouzi hugged him intimately, and the team also got verbal pats from the fans after the final whistle.

Above all, “football god” Dickson Abiama, whose fairytale promotion from the district league to the Bundesliga player is representative of the SpVgg: a lot achieved, did a lot, but the Bundesliga was then a number too big. This also became clear in the last home game against a BVB, which was visible in the energy -saving mode and yet won relatively easily with 3: 1.

Leitl successor is still a long time coming

Once the cloverleaf can play in the Bundesliga concert, at FC Augsburg next Saturday (3:30 p.m., live! At Union Berlin) the last attempt is about the first away win. In the background, the plans for the 2nd division are running. The leading successor is still a long time coming despite many conversations.

In addition to Maximilian Bauer (Augsburg), Paul Seguin (Union Berlin), Marius Funk (FC Ingolstadt) and Abdourahmane Barry (destination unknown), the club also said goodbye to Nick Viergever on Saturday, who did not accept the Fürther offer and whom it returned to the Dutch homeland pulls. Sascha Burchert and Havard Nielsen, whose contracts expire, have not been passed (yet), their future is open.

Leweling could bring three to four million euros

Jamie Leweling, one of the positive stories of this season with five goals and two assists, is likely to continue playing in the Bundesliga. Union Berlin is interested in the U-21 international, and VfB Stuttgart and Borussia Mönchengladbach are said to have stretched out their feelers. Leweling wants to remain first -class, the Fürther want to generate a transfer and will therefore sell it. The price should be between three and four million euros.
