Martin Stranzl was active for Borussia Mönchengladbach between 2011 and 2016. Former manager Max Eberl (48) brought the experienced defender from Moscow to the Lower Rhine.
Overall, Stranzl completed 144 competitive games (ten goals, one assist) for Borussia Mönchengladbach. He is one of the most important leaders on the field and in the foal cabin.
After the end of his career, he initially succeeded as an assistant coach for Borussia’s U19s before Stranzl then moved to his Austrian home of Güssing (Burgenland) with his family.
Stranzl, who has completed his UEFA A license as a football coach, is said to have had an offer for a coaching job at the moment.
In addition, there is speculation in Austria about a return from Stranzl to the pay channel “Sky” as a TV expert.
