Nine players will leave the sharks in summer. The club logged in on Thursday in a press release. Among the departures are the longtime regulars Marcel Müller, Lucas Dumont and Colin Ugbekile, who played for the KEC for six years.
With Justin Pogge and Tomas Pöpperle, both entertainment of the past season must also go. The further departures are Marcel Barinka, Quinton Howden, Philipp Maurer and Carl Neill.
First new entries in the next few weeks
The club officers had extended many contracts in the last weeks and months, with some players they are currently still in conversations. First new additions will be announced in the next few weeks, including three talents from one’s own shark youth with funding licenses.
