SC Freiburg gets Matthias Ginter from Borussia Mönchengladbach back

The Bundesliga club SC Freiburg has succeeded in looking for a successor to Nico Schlotterbeck. As the Breisgauer announced, national player Matthias Ginter returns to his home club free of charge. The 28-year-old comes from Mönchengladbach in the summer after his end of the contract. As usual, the sports club did not provide any information as usual. Schlotterbeck made his move to Borussia Dortmund public on Monday.

In Freiburg "the overall package" fits perfectly, Ginter explained his step: "I wanted to do something very special in my career, and something more special than the return to the sports club and in my home country does not exist. The development of the whole Association to find the potential of the team as well as the special way of exchange with those responsible for the association in the past few weeks - you can describe all of this in my home country as a stroke of luck today. "

Ginter moved to the Freiburg football school in 2005 at the age of eleven and won the DFB Junior Club Cup with the U19 of the Breisgauer in 2011 and 2012. In 2012 he made his debut with the professionals and completed a total of 81 competitive games until his departure towards Dortmund in 2014.
