Kevin Danso does not see his future at FC Augsburg. Now he has rejected the next peace offer from the Fuggerstadt residents and called in sick.
Last week, Danso was kicked out of the FCA training camp. The Austrian had previously informed those responsible that he no longer wanted to train or play for the club. “As a coach you are also surprised by something like that. That is of course a blow,” admitted head coach Markus Weinzierl.
But in the Fugger city, it seems that hope for a peaceful settlement has not yet completely given up. “A conversation with Kevin is planned for the next few days. It has to be seen whether there is a common sporting future,” said manager Stefan Reuter in an interview with kicker, “Or whether we can find a sensible solution with another club. If that doesn’t work, the only way is to remind the player of his duties.”
However, a danso comeback at the FCA does not seem particularly promising. After leaving the Fuggerstadt training camp, the club “organized a training session in Augsburg” on Saturday so that the defender could keep fit. “But Kevin called in sick,” said Reuter, who was “incredibly disappointed” with the player.
“It is a bad habit that contracts are binding for clubs, but if a player has a different idea, he is no longer interested in his contract,” were the clear words of the 54-year-old.
Danso is apparently speculating with a switch to RC Lens, which, according to Reuter, has so far only made an offer that is not in line with the market. “Incidentally, an offer from Lens has only been sent to us by an advisor. Nobody from the club itself has yet contacted us,” the manager continued.
