Rafael Santos Borré was the great figure of the Eintracht Frankfurt of the Bundesliga in the 2021/22 season, the Colombian scored 12 goals and seven assists in 44 games between the different competitions that the club managed to compete, including the Europa League, where they managed to be champions.

For the second half of the year, Las Águilas qualified for the next edition of the Champions League and will play the European Super Cup against Real Madrid.

In order to maintain its leading role, Eintracht Frankfurt has been reinforced with the arrival of two great figures from international football.

Midfielder Mario Götze, champion with Germany in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, arrives at the German club from PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch soccer league.

The second reinforcement is the Argentine Lucas Alario, an old friend of Borré during his time at River Plate, who comes from Bayer 04 Leverkusen. They will dispute the UEFA Champions League after being champions of the Europa League.

Lucas Alario is very experienced and proved to be an absolute team player at Leverkusen. In recent years he has repeatedly demonstrated his scoring strengths and knows the Bundesliga very well. With Lucas attacking on this front line, we look well equipped for the challenges of the new season.”, stated sports director Markus Krösche.
