Football – Freiburg im Breisgau – Schlotterbeck: Maybe it’s “one shelf higher” – sport

Freiburg (AP) – Soccer professional Nico Schlotterbeck from Bundesliga club SC Freiburg has more or less ruled out a move abroad after this season. “It’s still a dream for me that I play in the Bundesliga. And that’s why I don’t have the desire to go abroad,” said the central defender to the TV channel “Sky” https://www.sueddeutsche. de/sport/.”It doesn’t matter whether it’s England, Spain or Italy – I want to stay in Germany if it’s possible.”

The 22-year-old explained that he would like to play for one of the best clubs in this country. This currently also includes fifth-placed Freiburg. But maybe it’s “one more shelf higher”. There are “simply bigger clubs in Germany and everyone has the goal of getting the best out of it”. Record champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are said to be thinking about Schlotterbeck, who has a contract in Freiburg until June 30, 2023.

A week ago, however, Schlotterbeck indicated in the “Stuttgarter Zeitung” and the “Stuttgarter Nachrichten” that he might continue to play for the Breisgauer. “It’s very possible that there’s nowhere to go and I’ll stay in Freiburg,” he said.
