“I was surprised by everything” Augsburg professional complains about “rubbish” reports

Before the season, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw is handing over the captain’s armband at FC Augsburg and is said to be leaving the Bundesliga club after this season. The Dutchman was in the starting line-up for the first time in the win against Mainz. Then he vents his anger.

Jeffrey Gouweleeuw was emotionally upset after his strong starting eleven comeback in the FC Augsburg team. The 32-year-old Dutchman was extremely happy about FCA’s first win of the season in the Bundesliga and his valuable contribution to the 2-1 win against bottom-placed FSV Mainz 05: “At the end of the day, when it gets stressful, I’ll be back needed.” But mixed with the joy was also some anger about how he had been treated over the past few months.

The former captain, who has been wearing the FCA jersey since 2016, complained that there were “just rubbish” reports about him. “A lot was said and a lot was written, including a lot that just wasn’t right. It all surprised me a bit,” said Gouweleeuw. But the moment will soon come when “I’ll come with my story,” he announced. “A lot has happened recently, but that’s football, that’s life. I think you have to show character.”

The long-time defense chief gave up his captaincy in the summer. “That was my own decision,” he said on Saturday evening in the Augsburg stadium. In addition, his contract, which expires at the end of the season, will not be extended in the wake of Augsburg’s upheaval. The central defender missed the start of the season after an operation on his foot. Now he is fit again and is suddenly back on the pitch. He is needed after conceding too many goals at the start of the season. “I always believed in it,” he said.

Especially when he was outnumbered after the red card for Arne Engels, Gouweleeuw organized and stabilized the previously so porous FCA defense in the second half. There was immediate special praise from coach Enrico Maaßen: “You have to say about Jeff’s performance: Chapeau! He was rock solid.” And on our own behalf you will also hear from Gouweleeuw.
