Third division team 1860 Munich has terminated the contract with its former captain Sascha Mölders, which expired at the end of the season, after “constructive talks” with immediate effect. The German champions from 1966 announced this on Sunday.
In advance, “all misunderstandings have been cleared up,” said a statement by the Lions. In the end, “both parties agreed” that the separation was “the best solution”.
“I will always keep my fingers crossed for the team and hope that the club can achieve its goals,” said Mölders. Managing director Günther Gorenzel said that Mölders had done “great things” for sixty and thanked him.
The 36-year-old striker was recently taken out of the squad “until further notice” by the club around coach Michael Köllner. Mölders said he was “shocked”.
He played for 1860 since January 2016. In 18 league games that season, he scored five goals. In total, he was successful 79 times in 204 games for Munich.
