“He had come to Leipzig with high hopes. Hannes Wolf was supposed to revive the midfield at RB, but nothing came of it. He first broke his ankle at the U21 European Championships in the summer of 2019, but following his recovery he could not sustainably recommend himself for the tribal elves. The result: The Austrian played just five Bundesliga games.
Perhaps because of the short operating times, he had ample opportunity to think about the summer planning. Together with his girlfriend Teresa and acquaintances, the 21-year-old is currently staying in Mykonos.
The fact that the band flew by private jet to the Greek dream island is almost standard. But the fact that Wolf ran in the in-restaurant “Nusr-Et” and, according to “Bild”, indulged in a gold steak for around 300 euros, is likely to have consequences.
Former Bayern player Franck Ribéry had fallen out of favour at a Munich training camp because he had decided to use the decadent piece of meat and still published sly photos of the meal. The appearance at star restaurateur Nusret Gökce could have been wolf a warning, but it wasn’t.
RB Leipzig have not yet responded to the faux pas of the €12 million access. But the former coach Ralf Rangnick had already criticized the generation carelessly for a visit to the hairdresser in January. “I would have bet 100,000 euros that our players wouldn’t let a star hairdresser fly in from England to get their hair done in the hotel,” Rangnick said on the sidelines of the celebration of the 120th birthday of the German Football Federation in Leipzig: “I would have lost that 100,000 euros.”
Nine RB players had used the services of star hairdresser Sheldon Edwards before the 0-2 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt and had them flown in specifically for this purpose. Rangnick: “It’s decadent. Then the road to the golden steak is not far.”
