Hannes Wolf: “I don’t see myself as a flop.”

Speaking in an interview with Bild, Hannes Wolf (23) is yet to breakthrough at Borussia Mönchengladbach but despite criticism, doesn’t label himself as a flop following his €9.5m transfer from RB Leipzig in 2021.

“Things haven’t gone the way I imagined so far, but I’m a fighter,” said Wolf, who added: “I don’t see myself as a flop. Of course, I know that a lot was paid for me, but I don’t make the price.”

Wolf played just 51 minutes across four games in the Bundesliga this season but missed the last eight through a shoulder injury. Wanting to help the team in the Rückrunde, Wolf added: “I offer myself as much as possible in training. I don’t have any control over what comes out of it at the end, that’s for the trainer to decide.”

During his time at Borussia Mönchengladbach, Wolf has played 55 games across all competitions, scoring four and creating two. The Austria international spent the first six months of 2022 on loan at Championship side Swansea City, scoring two and creating three in 19 games.

Three points off Borussia Dortmund, who occupy the UEFA Europa Conference League spot, Borussia Mönchengladbach host Bayer Leverkusen on January 22.

Roland Virkus and Daniel Farke face a busy couple of months ahead of them in the transfer market with Yann Sommer, Ramy Bensebaini and Marcus Thuram yet to sign new contracts, all of which expire in 2023.
