Nico Schulz makes his BVB comeback: Will he soon be part of the U23 squad?
Nico Schulz has made his comeback for BVB. He played from the start in a friendly for the U23s. He could soon be part of the third division squad.
Nico Schulz made his comeback for BVB. In a friendly for the U23s, the 29-year-old started from the start. Now he could soon even be a permanent part of Borussia's third division squad.
Nico Schulz played his last competitive game for the on May 7th BVB. On matchday 33 of the previous season, Schulz came on as a substitute in the 3-1 away win against Greuther Fürth. It was his 61st appearance for Black and Yellow. No more should be added.
Already at the beginning of the summer preparation, coaches made Edin Terzic Schulz realized that he was no longer planning with him. The 29-year-old has been completely left out ever since. However, the hoped-for departure of the left-back did not materialize. Instead, his well-paid contract in Dortmund continues - it is valid until 2024.
Schulz soon permanently in the U23 squad?
On Thursday afternoon, however, Borussia surprised. Schulz stood in test match the U23 against the Dutch first division team Go Ahead Eagles Deventer (2:3) on the pitch from the start. As the Ruhr news write, a "decisive conversation" with Edin Terzic is said to have preceded the assignment with the third division team.
It is now even possible that Schulz will be a permanent member of the U23 squad after the international break. So he should gain match practice in the 3rd division and could recommend himself for a possible change in winter. A conversation between Schulz and sports director Sebastian Kehl should be held in the near future.
The measure could make sense for both sides. Because despite all the financial compensation, it is not particularly satisfying for the ex-national player to waste the entire season in the stands. With appearances in league three he can at least keep fit. In the best case, this opens the door for a winter deal a little more.
