Frankfurt also snaps bargain onguene

A little self-lobe sounds through if Markus Kröse says, it speaks “for Eintracht Frankfurt, such a player for us to have won”. But the sports board may not be wrong: with Jerome Onguené (24), Eintracht could succeed a small transfer coup.

The central defender comes to the new season with the experience of 13 Champions League games and (so far) four championship titles of RB Salzburg – free transfer. The SGE, which had been in the sake of attention for some time, paid out the Cameroonian national player with a contract until summer 2027.

OnGuené did not start at VFB yet

“It is certainly special that we gain a player who can already show numerous missions in the Champions League in his young age,” says Kösche. After Faride Alidou (20, HSV) OnGuené is already the second bargain, which the Frankfurter is not even 48 hours. He should give the defensive “further substance” and “more flexibility” hopes to croses.

In January 2017, the VfB Stuttgart, then second division, ONGuené, then 19 years old, had committed to the FC Sochaux, but only two times used in the second team. He was awarded to Salzburg at the end of the season, which finally committed him for a year later.

In Salzburg OnGuené would have liked to play more often

So far, Onguené comes to 111 mandatory games for the Austrian subscription master. With Cameroon (ten international matches) he became third parties at this year’s Africa Cup.

“In a few weeks, an exciting and successful time in my career goes to an end,” Quote the Salzburg on Friday. “Even though I did not play so much as I would like, I could not only learn a lot at FC Red Bull Salzburg as a footballer, but also as a person very much – I am very grateful.”

BVB | Ansgar Knauf: Thats why I left Borussia Dortmund – Frankfurt

In winter, Ansgar Knauf left BVB and headed for the Dortmunder Bundesliga competitor Eintracht Frankfurt. At the Hesse, the 20-year-old is hoping for a high level. Why he was hindrous in the Treusie at Borussia, the left outside has betrayed in an interview.

Only five times Ansgar Knauf was allowed to winter break for the BVB in the Bundesliga Ran – always as a joker and never more than 45 minutes. Both sides were therefore consistent to promote a loan business. Eintracht Frankfurt became noisy and grabbed for one and a half years.

For Knauf, who had been one of the shooting stars in Dortmund last spring, it is clear that the coach change was not crucial to Marco Rose for his disappointing round to Marco Rose for his disappointing first round.

“That was certainly not at the coach,” Knauf asked in the interview with the “Frankfurter Rundschau” clear and supplemented: “The BVB has a top-cast squad with top players. It is always difficult to come in this large, wide squad on a lot of playing time But the most important thing is: you have to accept any situation, do not lame or think for a long time when you play instead of Bundesliga in the third league. “

Conversion at BVB for Knauf not always easy

Even in the preseason, Knauf was suspended between the U23 of Borussia and the professional team. The then Regional League team is now well successfully in the 3rd league.

The 20-year-old now said that the 20-year-old said: “The U23 was also my team, we had a very good troupe, wanted to rise, which in the last game after a very long season with many English weeks then has succeeded, Also this success was very special for me and the team something very special, more: a milest1. “

At the same time he would have to grant that it is “already a changeover, just to play Bundesliga and Champions League and then Regionalliga,” says Knauf, who stated soberly, “You have to adapt.”

In general, the first experiences in the race ensemble of the Westphalia have been something very special for him, the attacker revealed. “At first you are excited, it’s hard to classify, but it’s already a horny time and just beautiful, because that’s what you have always dreamed of as a child,” Knauf granted insight into his emotional world.

Knauf sees BVB and Eintracht Frankfurt at eye level

A little surprisingly, Knauf’s assessment came to the performance of the Frankfurt Eintracht, which actually sees the winter newcomer at eye level with the BVB.

“I would not say that Eintracht is the weaker team. In the game, both teams differ, it is great from the level, that does not take much. That’s what you have seen in the return round, the German U21 national player emphasized.
