There is shocking news emerging from Germany with Bundesliga club TTC Zugbrücke Grenzau cancelling Kou Lei’s contract with immediate effect.

The Ukrainian player told the German club that he required sick leave and was unavailable for selection for Grenzau’s fixture against Post SV Mühlhausen on Sunday 10th December.

However, according to a press release from Grenzau Chairman Jörg Schlichter, Kou Lei contested a separate tournament abroad without permission from the club.

“This was neither discussed with us nor tolerated by us. We found out about it by accident and have terminated it as a consequence of this behavior without notice…

… We have always met Kou Lei in recent weeks in view of his personal wishes and feelings, to signal to him how important we are to good cooperation. Now, however, a point has been reached where it was our duty to act.” – Jörg Schlichter (TTC Zugbrücke Grenzau Chairman).
