Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic wants to leave the club and even refused to train for it last week. So far, however, no suitable offer has been received for the left winger. Obviously, it is highly unlikely that this situation will change by the end of the transfer window.
Lazio Rome is said to have offered almost ten million euros for the Serbs so far, according to the image if this offer was “a bad joke” for the SBU, the Hessians would call at least 15 million euros plus bonuses. A market insider explained that kickerthat there is “no chance” that the Italians push their offer up that far.
The Frankfurters are now assuming a whereabouts. Sports director Markus Krösche, who reprimanded the player for his behavior, wanted to work on Kostic’s reintegration into the team. Before the game against Bielefeld he was with Sky said: “The solution is that he stays with us. There is no price tag. We plan with Filip. He is an important part of our team and he has a contract with us.” In view of the contract, which runs until 2023, they “do not want to be put under pressure”.
If Kostic, who has played 129 times for Eintracht and contributed 26 goals and 48 assists, continues to refuse to play for Eintracht, there would even be sanctions from FIFA and claims for damages from the club. Association attorney Christoph Schickhardt declared at image: “The player has a very high risk. I would advise him to get a good lawyer to discuss the pros and cons with him.”
But it shouldn’t get that far. Coach Oliver Glasner described Kostic’s behavior as “not fantastic” and confirmed Kostic’s request for a change, but “three parties were always involved”. Team mate Martin Hinteregger tried to appease: “Don’t make that big. Filip has been the model professional for the last three years. Everything would be forgotten a day later at the latest. I think everyone is happy when they stay.”
