Before going on to add: “We have a very broad squad in terms of quality. So we will give up high performers again if it makes financial sense and we can absorb it in a sporting way.
“When I think of [Timo] Werner, [Matheus] Cunha, [Naby] Keïta or [Diego] Demme, we have already redeemed a lot and still developed further in terms of sport.
“Overall we have invested a lot in our team, no question about it. But look: the current squad had a market value of less than 250 million [euros] when each player debuted. And if we now take the current market value, we are around 550 million.
“This plus of over 300 million has to be taken into account when talking about investments. We create value with our way.”
