Pongracic sued the VFL Wolfsburg

As if the VFL Wolfsburg had not worried this season… Now another problem has been added. With a player who is currently not paid by the Lower Saxony. Until the end of the season Marin Pongracic is awarded to Borussia Dortmund, yet he employs the VFL more than desired. The WAZ reports that the Kroat has sued the club at which he is under contract until 2024 has sued. It is about success premiums that, according to Pongracics view, were not paid as contractually agreed. To a total of 250,000 euros. This case will be negotiated at the beginning of March in front of the Labor Court Braunschweig.

It is the next chapter in the file Pongracic, which the VFL created in January 2020. At that time, Managing Director Jörg Schmadtke and sports director Marcel Schäfer obliged the central defender of RB Salzburg. For nine million euros, as the player has been propelled by themselves. An investment that pays off only for a short time as Pongracic after the Corona interruption two years ago. Subsequently, however, the differences, mostly triggered by disciplinaryness of the footballer.

hardened fronts

That the disagreement regarding the premiums does not clearly clarify between the parties, shows how hardening the fronts have long been. What a real problem is. First and foremost for the club, which must pay the 24-year-olds until summer 2024. But also for the player whose athletic future is in the stars.

Pongracic – with a large part of your own attachment below

The hope that Borussia Dortmund draws the purchase option for the Croatian international (two missions) and transfers nine million euros to the VfL in the summer, has long been smashed. This sum will hardly be flowing from another club to the VFL account. But even in Wolfsburg, in the face of all incidents in recent times, it is difficult to imagine that Pongracic can play a sporty role. Especially since he is at a large part of his own attachment below and have long been even prosperous in the team.

Sporty, the defense man from the VfL leadership at the view of its potential for a long time as the strongest domestic defender in the squad was assessed, but again repetitions have made the croats born in Landshut but quickly to the problem. “We talked very intensively with him. The topic Focus is a point where we would have liked that he hecks him more,” said sport director Schäfer last November. Since the Dortmunder loan player had straight in an online stream over the VFL. “I was written off in Wolfsburg,” said Pongracic, “they had no… more on me.” That should not have changed much…
