Riether leaves Fulham for Freiburg

Fulham have confirmed via their official club website that defender Sascha Riether has left Craven Cottage.

The 31-year-old returns to his native Germany, signing for SC Freiburg after spending two years in west London, in which he made a total of 72 Fulham appearances in all competitions.


Reither originally joined Fulham on a season-long loan deal from 1. FC Köln in 2012, but after a successful year, the Cottagers decided to take up the option to make the switch permanent in the summer of 2013.


However, Fulham’s relegation at the end of a disappointing 2013/14 season prompted Riether to move on rather than stay to play in the second tier.


This move marks a real homecoming for Riether, as he also started his career with Freiburg, making 139 Bundesliga appearances in five years with the Baden-Württemberg club. But he insisted that the return to where his career began is not just for old times’ sake.


"I had a wonderful time in London but now I'm looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga again. I'm not just coming back to Freiburg for nostalgic reasons. I've also come back because I've seen Freiburg develop extremely well in recent seasons,” the official Bundesliga website reported him as saying. “I want to do whatever I can to help the team, the coaching staff and the coach Christian Streich to ensure our Bundesliga status as quickly as possible next season."


Between his stints with Freirburg and 1. FC Köln, Riether also had a distinguished four-year spell with VfL Wolfsburg. He also has two full caps for the German national team.
