BVB management has confirmed that Moroccan defender Achraf Hakimi will no longer be on the squad next season.
It’s Michael Zorc, Borussia’s sporting director, who brought up the case of lateral gloss. After long hoping to keep him, he recognized that there was no chance of a new loan being made with the Merengue. “There have been developments this week. The price is much higher now. And there is a point where we have to say: we don’t want this and we can’t do it,” he said.
