Following a five hour meeting on Wednesday, members of Eintracht Frankfurt’s supervisory board have rejected a request from Fredi Bobic for the early termination of his contract.
“The supervisory board has pointed out to Fredi Bobic that his contact as a member of the board of Management still runs until June 30, 2023 without any possibility of a termination or exit clause,” said a press release. “Fredi Bobic has confirmed this and stated that he will behave in accordance with his contract and honour it.”
According to Kicker, Bobic could still leave Eintracht Frankfurt this summer with Hertha Berlin his likely destination. But, Hertha would have to pay a compensation fee of around €5 million and should the Bundesliga side push for Bobic, Eintracht would look to find a solution.
Speaking to German broadcaster ARD last week, Bobic stated that he wanted to leave Eintracht Frankfurt last summer and that the Bundesliga club were prepared for Bobic to want to leave in 2021.
