Kolo Muani absent from training

The striker informed the Eintracht sporting mangement today that he will not take part in the final training session before Thursday’s play-off match against Sofia.

Striker Randal Kolo Muani today informed the Eintracht Frankfurt sporting management that he will not take part in today’s final training session ahead of the UEFA Europa Conference League qualification play-off second leg against PFC Levski Sofia on Thursday (20:30 CEST). He stated his intention to move clubs before the end of the transfer window on Friday night as the reason for his absence.

Eintracht board member for sport Markus Krösche explained: “This isn’t the Randal we’ve got to know and we know his real character. He’s being bombarded at the moment and the result is this reaction, which is wrong, as we’ve made clear to him and his entourage along with all the ramifications. We’ll contest the match against Levski Sofia without him. For us it’s clear: this behaviour has no influence on transfer business. What matters now is the important game against Sofia. That has utmost priority and great significance for the club. Our team have a high level of quality and are fully focused on tomorrow’s game.”
