Borussia extend Wendt's contract by a year
Borussia have extended Oscar Wendt's contract until June 2021.

The Foals have extended left-back Oscar Wendt’s contract, which expires in the summer, by a year until June 2021.

“We’re delighted that an agreement has been reached with Oscar Wendt to extend his contract, and that he will be a Gladbach player for another year,” said Borussia’s sporting director Max Eberl. Head coach Marco Rose added: “Oscar is a Borussia Mönchengladbach veteran now, and has already done a lot for the club. He has great experience now and a fantastic left foot. He has adapted really well to our style of play and is a smart player. He’s played very well this season as a wing-back when we’ve played with three at the back, and the position suits him. So it’s only logical that we’ve extended our contract with a good footballer and a really great guy.”

The 34-year-old Swede has played at Gladbach since 2011. In his first season with the Foals, Wendt made 14 Bundesliga appearances, as well as playing in two DFB-Pokal games, scoring once. Since then, the left-back has appeared in 272 competitive games for the club and scored 17 goals. Those games are divided into 218 Bundesliga appearances, 21 DFB-Pokal appearances and 33 European appearances in a Gladbach shirt, which means that the Swede has featured for Gladbach more often than any other non-German player. In the 2019/20 season so far, the former Sweden international has played in 21 of the 29 Bundesliga games (2 goals), four Europa League matches, and two DFB-Pokal games.
