In his three years at VfB, Gonzalo Castro has had some quick ups and downs. The descent was followed directly by the climb and ninth place after the return. Nevertheless, Sven Mislinat did not wish to extend the season with the veteran. The 34-year-old was very disappointed that there had been no offer. The sporting director justified that the club relied on the “development potential of our best talents”. But that potential seems to be stagnating and on top of that there is a lot of bad luck with the injuries, so the Swabians are stuck in the relegation battle again.

There would have to be a lot of coincidences,” Castro said, crossing his fingers for his ex-club and giving hope: “You’ve got a good The team haven’t performed as well as they should at the moment either, but I’m hopeful it will happen.”

In the Castro episode (see here or on Youtube) the ex-Stuttgart also analyzes what is currently lacking in VfB, which should give fans hope in the near future and what is “very, very dangerous” in Stuttgart at the moment.
