Sebastian Rode commented for the first time on a possible end of his career in the coming summer. At the press conference before the Europa League game against Royal Antwerp (Thursday, 9 p.m.), the 31-year-old reported about his ongoing knee problems: “The situation annoys me most of all. I would like to be more on the pitch, but unfortunately that is not possible. I talk to the trainer about how we manage all of this and how we can manage it in the long term. It is of course annoying for everyone else in the club. “
Recently, media reports circulated that Rode could not fulfill his contract, which runs until 2024. “When you read an article like this, it’s never nice, but it doesn’t bother me either. I try to be in top shape again as soon as possible, everything else will be seen – nobody needs to worry about me “adds the unity captain.
