Hannes Wolf has reflected on his difficult 2019/20 season, which saw the midfielder make just five appearances for the club after his move from RB Salzburg last summer.

The Austrian midfielder, who has joined Borussia Mönchengladbach on loan for the upcoming season, told Sport Bild:

"I broke my ankle at the under-21 European Championship in the summer and needed time to get fully fit. It was hard for me to make my way into a team that worked well and played an outstanding first half of the season.

"And if things don't work out for you at RB, the club have the financial possibilities to bring in another player for your position," the midfielder added, probably referring to Dani Olmo, who made the switch to Red Bull Arena from Dinamo Zagreb towards the end of January.

According to Kicker, Gladbach will be obliged to tie the 21-year-old down to a permanent deal if he makes 15 competitive appearances in the upcoming season.
