Marwin Hitz will leave Borussia Dortmund in summer. The BVB goalkeeper officially announced this before the last game of the season against Hertha BSC.
“Even if I didn’t like it easily, I decided to accept a new challenge,” Hitz confirmed his upcoming farewell to Instagram. The Swiss turns back to BVB after a total of four years.
“I am very grateful for the time, the experiences, the success and above all the games in front of you fans in Signal Iduna Park. Thanks to every borussia for the support in good and bad times,” added the 34-year-old.
The BVB has now responded to the post office. “Thank you, Marwin,” commented the district club under the contribution.
The fact that Hitz is leaving the black and yellow is not surprising, after all, the veteran had indirectly announced the end of his BVB period a few weeks ago after the Bundesliga top game against FC Bayern (1: 3). “The Last classic,” Hitz wrote under a photo at the time that showed him during the game against the record champions.
Hitz and Bürki leave BVB together
It is currently still unclear where the keeper will go. At the beginning of May, “Transfermarkt.de” reported that FC Basel is interested in an obligation. Hitz was previously associated with his ex-club FC Augsburg.
The BVB has to reorganize itself in the goalkeeper position. Gregor Kobel will also be between the posts in Westphalia in the coming season, but a gap is gaped behind it – after all, Roman Bürki also says goodbye.
The former number one joins the new St. Louis City MLS club. Bürki had lost a regular post in Hitz last season. Now the goalkeeper duo leaves the Dortmund Borussia together.
