Roman Bürki will leave Borussia Dortmund after the end of the current season.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper, who is not part of coach Marco Rose’s plans this season, has terminated his contract, which runs until June 2023. Starting this summer, he will join St. Louis City SC in Major League Soccer (MLS).
“It was an honor for me to have played for this great club for a total of seven years. I will always remember not only the cup victories in 2017 and 2021, but all the good and difficult times that we experienced together,” he said Schweizer quoted in a club broadcast.
“Once a Borusse, always a Borusse!”
“My thanks go first and foremost to my great teammates, but also to those responsible at BVB, my coaches, the entire team behind the team and last but not least the incredible fans. Once a Borussia, always a Borusse,” Bürki continued.
“I’ve spent a lot of time privately in the USA in recent years, I’m a big fan of US sports and I’m really happy to be able to help develop something in St. Louis, at a club that’s being built up,” adds Bürki, who played 232 competitive games for BVB, added.
His future employer, who only two weeks ago announced the commitment of ex-LASK loanee Joao Klauss, will join the MLS as the 28th franchise from the coming season.
