Karlsruhe (dpa/lsw) - Sporting director Oliver Kreuzer has extended his contract with Karlsruher SC, which expires at the end of the season, until June 30, 2025. In addition, he would like to reduce the squad of the second division soccer team in the current transfer period.
The current professional team of KSC wants to rebuild Kreuzer until the end of the change period. "Our squad currently has 31 players. We would therefore like to give up one or two more players," said the 56-year-old of the German Press Agency. "Luca Bolay, Felix Irorere and Kilian Jakob are among the candidates who come into consideration. If another player comes to us who, in his opinion, has too little playing time, we are certainly willing to talk. If all the players are fit, we are we're a bit overstaffed in central defence."
Due to numerous injury-related absences, KSC had stepped up their defense in the course of the summer and brought in Florian Ballas from Erzgebirge Aue and Stephan Ambrosius from Hamburger SV, among others. As soon as the injured Christoph Kobald and Daniel O'Shaughnessy are ready for action again, the battle for places in defense escalates again. "According to the current status, no more additions are planned," Kreuzer continued.
