The alternating theater around Florian Grillitsch never ends.
According to information from “Sport1”, the ÖFB team player was in negotiations with Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion, but ended up getting a basket.
Grillitsch had already traveled to England with his family and advisors to negotiate the terms of the contract. Coach Graham Potter was a great sympathizer of the Austrian’s style of play and mentality. After the conversation, Brighton ended the negotiations due to character question marks.
Next club loses interest
The wild transfer summer continues. After talks with det AC Fiorentina, West Ham United and Galatasaray Istanbul, the next transfer poker fails. According to reports, father Michael Grillitsch caused the problems several times during the negotiations.
Grillitsch then took responsibility himself: “Certain things have recently been extremely unfortunate. Of course, I take responsibility for that myself, and I have drawn the appropriate conclusions from that,” says the Lower Austrian, who therefore only recently returned to his former advisor Thomas Böhm .
The 26-year-old has been without a club since the beginning of July after not extending his expiring contract with Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim.
