Gladbach boss Max Eberl has responded to rumors that Florian Neuhaus could join Bayern München in the future.
Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has expressed frustration with speculation linking Florian Neuhaus with a move to Bayern München.
Neuhaus recently refused to rule out a move to the German champions, but also underlined that he's fully focused on Gladbach at the moment.
When asked if he's worried that the 23-year-old midfielder will leave Borussia-Park before his contract expires in 2024, Eberl told Sport1:
"I've been doing this for 12 years now, and our players are always linked to other clubs. The same goes for our coach. This can be tiresome at times. Sometimes I ask myself: What do we want?
"On the one hand, we want a league in which other clubs can become champions. But on the other hand, players are being touted for a move to this club again and again. Why not just say: 'Hey, cool! Something is developing in Gladbach?'. Why shouldn't Florian Neuhaus stay with us? Meanwhile, the reflex is always: 'Good game, good development, where is he going?'
"'Flo' knows what he was with us. He plays at the highest level in the Champions League with Gladbach. Of course I know that our players have the potential to join the biggest clubs at some point. It was no different with [Roman] Neustädter, [Granit] Xhaka or [Mahmoud] Dahoud, for example. But we have always been good at coping with these departures."
Neuhaus has played 11 games for Gladbach this season, racking up two goals and two assists. He made his debut for the German national team in October.
