New Eintracht Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner has selected Sebastian Rode as his captain for the 2021/22 season.


The 30-year-old central midfielder takes over the responsibility from Japanese veteran Makoto Hasebe.

"As a true Hessian with his great experience and personality, Sebastian Rode is the ideal captain for our team and a strong representative of Eintracht Frankfurt," explained Glasner.

"This also applies to his deputies Makoto Hasebe and Martin Hinteregger. Together with Kevin Trapp in goal, we have a fantastic axis."
