Gladbach for ginter in criticism

Managing Director Ulf Baranowsky From the Association of Contracting Footballers (VDV), Bundesligaist Borussia Mönchengladbach criticized for dealing with nationalist Matthias Ginter.

In practice, unfortunately, it relatively often likes that players from economic interests of clubs and player agents are pressurized. They are thus used to play ball in a game that they can hardly influence themselves, Baranowsky said the Bundesligaist Borussias show.

It belongs to the business model of numerous clubs, to buy players as cheap as possible to sell them later. However, this must not cause players to prolong contracts at their clubs at an early stage, says their clubs before the end of the contract, says Baranowsky.

Ginter will not extend its expiring contract in Mönchengladbach, he can leave the five-time German champion in the summer free transfer. Gladbach wants to give the 28-year-old still in January to collect still a transfer fee. In the League, trainer Adi Hütter renounced against Bayer Leverkusen (1: 2) on Ginter. At the cup of second division Hannover 96 (0: 3), Ginter was back.

It is not fair to criticize an employee that he fulfills his employment contract. It is completely legitimate if a player wants to stay with his club until the end of the contract. Until that day, he has a claim to participate in the game and Training operation of the professional team, said Baranowsky.
