Few could have imagined that in this form. Neither those responsible for Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt, nor the player himself. Ansgar Knauff is in the final of the Europa League today and can win the title there against Glasgow Rangers.
It is precisely those Glasgow Rangers that are Eintracht Frankfurt’s final opponents, against whom Borussia Dortmund was eliminated in the first knockout round of the Europa League with a total of 6 goals conceded in just two parties.
Ansgar Knauff, who was only loaned out to Eintracht by BVB during the winter break, wants to do better today. There he was so convincing that he is considered one of the guarantors for the famous performances of the Hessians in the Europa League, which ultimately lead to the final in Seville.
Even away from the big FC Barcelona, the actual Borusse Ansgar Knauff won with his unity and eliminated the Catalans. Knauff also knew how to convince in these two duels.
In principle, his development at BVB will of course be viewed positively. But the question also arises as to whether this could not have helped Borussia this season, as Eintracht Frankfurt is currently doing.
Knauff played in the Seville final today
comes that the successful appearances in the jersey of Eintracht Frankfurt could possibly persuade Ansgar Knauff not to want to return to Borussia Dortmund. Knauff has been loaned to Eintracht until the summer of 2023 anyway. But if he continues to play as brilliantly as he did last time, he could flirt with it, preferring to go into details in a club where he has already earned a great reputation.
Especially since Eintracht wins the Europa League – the chances tonight are probably 50:50 – an enormous rain of money beckons not only for the title in the EL, but also through the associated qualification for the Champions League. Then it would certainly be easier for Eintracht to finance a transfer and a good salary for Ansgar Knauff.
But first of all the final has to be played today – and Knauf has to confirm his strong performances in the coming season.
