The German soccer team for the Olympic Games in Tokyo will have to cope with the next cancellation. U21 European champion Ismail Jakobs is moving from Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln to French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco and is therefore not flying to Tokyo.
The German Football Association (DFB) announced on Monday evening. Niklas Dorsch and Josha Vagnoman had previously canceled the games.
“The German team, which now consists of 18 players, met on Monday in Frankfurt am Main to set off for Japan on Tuesday evening,” said a DFB announcement. Originally 22 players could have been nominated for the Olympic tournament.
Jakobs (21) will meet ex-Bayern coach Niko Kovac, national player Kevin Volland and Bayern Munich’s goalkeeper on loan from Alexander Nübel in the principality. With the Monegasque, third in the table last season, the winger receives a contract until 2026.
According to media reports, the transfer fee for the Rhinelander will amount to up to eight million euros. In total, the left-footed player played 43 times for FC in the Bundesliga. The home-grown contract would have expired on June 30, 2024.
