The Dane victim of fatigue after the commitments with his national team Expiring the contract will be left on the sidelines even when he recovers
Is there or isn’t there? The question about the presence of Jens Stryger Larsen in the squad list that will be issued by Udinese today before the departure for Turin is legitimate, considering what happened a few hours after the match won against Sassuolo, the last one before the break in championship. On that occasion, in fact, the Dane ended up in the stands for what Luca Gotti later defined as “a managerial choice of the company”. At stake is that signature under the contract renewal that Larsen has always refused to sign up to now, a definitive stance reaffirmed right before the match against Sassuolo and which has precipitated things.
There are, of course, no official statements or club notes: excluding a registered player from the matches only because he has a contract expiring at the end of the season and so from February 1st he could reach an agreement with another team in view of the next season could also lead to a request for release from the player. Certainly at the level of guidelines, Udinese has let Luca Gotti know that he wants to evaluate alternatives to Stryger Larsen from now to the end of the season, to understand if actually – just to mention names and surnames – Destiny Udogie is already a holder now. in spite of those 19 years that he will only turn next Sunday, and if the other class of 2002, Brandon Soppy is really the future of the right wing for the post Nahuel Molina.
Yeah, but will Larsen be left at home today by virtue of this “advice” to the coach? Not only. The Dane has returned from his commitments with his national team, dealing with muscle fatigue. Also for this reason, after having remained on the field for all 90 minutes of the derby with the Far Oer, in the match won by Denmark 3-1, Larsen was not even on the bench with his number 17 in the away match with Scotland, in the match. last (useless) commitment of the World Cup qualifiers promoted by the Scandinavians.
It was precisely on this aspect that Udinese had tried to leverage by proposing the renewal of the contract to Larsen who, with seven months in the stands, risks relegation in the hierarchies of Denmark in view of Qatar 2022. A “key” that did not change the plans for the player and his agents, Hasan Cetinkaya and Ali Dursun who make up HCM Sports Management, an agency in strong growth, capable of eroding – in part – even the power of Mino Raiola in Northern Europe, starting from Holland, where he controls elements of the caliber by Frenkie De Jong, Donny Van de Beek, while the highlight of the moment is another future free parameter, that Denis Zakaria of Borussia Mönchengladbach who last week gave Italy a displeasure with his Switzerland. –
