The past few months have certainly not been easy for Marcel Hallstenberg (30). However, he dreams of returning in the RB Leipzig shirt.
Leipzig – Could it always be worse? I tried for weeks RB Leipzig Marcel Halstenberg (30 years old) somehow fought in the team. Instead, the defender must return to the operating table.
Coach Jesse Marsh (47) reported this at the pre-match press conference at SC Freiburg. It’s the next blow to the neck for the 30-year-old, who has likely gone through one of the worst half years of his career.
After Red Bull officials did not find a solution with him for another contract after 2022, “Halst” wanted to move to Borussia Dortmund, the competition in the league.
But the move failed, according to his statements, due to the injury he sustained during the warm-up period before the German national team match against England in the European Championship.

There is a right ankle injury for the first time. Meanwhile, the problem had developed so uncontrollably that the new operation had to be performed on the knee.
“It will likely be two weeks before he can work on his own again,” his coach cautiously speculated. The past few weeks have shown that more of this can come very quickly.
Despite the difficult odds – also regarding the expiration of the contract – there is no sign of defender Halstenberg giving up.
The national player said in an interview with sports bell. There will also be encouragement from the coaches, who can still play an important role at the end of the season.
It remains to be seen if there will actually be enough time for the 30-year-old to present himself for further work with the Saxons. It would definitely be great if the current process still lasted for now.
