Rúrik has prolonged his contract with Sandhausen


The future for Rúrik

Roughly translated

It is uncertain where Rúrik Gíslason will play next season, but his deal with Sandhausen in the German B-league is running out.

Rúrik signed with Sandhausen during the season when he joined the club in January. Rúrik came to Sandhausen from Nurnberg as he was in the cold. Sandhausen wants to hold Rúrik but is uncertain whether he will stay there.

“This is untouched. I have a contract offer from them and will check my case after the World Cup, “said Rúrik at Football.com today.

Rúrik scored three goals in fifteen games with Sandhausen, who finished 11th in the German B-league.

“This was what I needed. I had a coach who had great faith in me. It was a good feeling to be in the starting line-up, although you have been traveling with the national team. It was respectful to me and that’s what I needed at this point, “said Rúrik who tested Sandhausen’s new position after the longest finishing touches.

“After a long time at the Nurnberg class, it’s amazing what one can appreciate the time you get. I was playing as a winger, striker and backman in a four-line line. I was playing various positions and had fun at all. ”
