Serial master Red Bull Salzburg and Zlatko Junuzovic will be separate ways from summer. As the Mozartstädter announced on Thursday, the expiring contract of the 34-year-old midfielder will not be extended. “Of course I regret this decision, because I like being here in Salzburg and a great, successful time,” shows Junuzovic disappointed. “But it’s the way it is, and I’m not just looking forward to my years at the FC Red Bull Salzburg, I also look positively in the future.” Wherever his way he is lost after the end of the season, he did not know yet.
Junuzovic had come to Salzburg at Werder Bremen in the summer of 2018 after a total of six and a half years and has denied 113 mandatory games for the “bulls”. In the current season, however, it is only five times used by a lengthy heel injury – but after his recovery usually no longer in the squad of coach Matthias Jisionle.
“For us, this was anything but simple decision. But we have discussed internally and in detail and are ultimately convinced that we will no longer extend the contract. We have notified this decision early on for the reasons of fairness, To give him enough time to re-orient himself, “said Salzburg’s sport director Christoph Friend. “‘Sladdi’ has never been able to hang in the last for him difficult months and done everything to get his injury under control. I hope he will soon be the old one and we will find a perfect conclusion together with him and can celebrate two more titles. “
