According to the German media "Rhine Post" news, Dortmund's old general and currently playing for the German C team Udingen 05 Gross Kreuz (Grand Cross) was suddenly terminated by the team.
According to the report, Grand Cross received the team’s notice of termination on Thursday. The official reason for Udingen’s aggressive move is still unclear. When asked about this, the German C club did not want to comment. Cross also has not issued a response statement.
According to reports, there is a wage dispute between Grand Cross and Udingen. The club and Grand Cross agents previously agreed to cut their monthly salary of 51,000 Euros by 14,000 Euros starting in July 2019. Due to the epidemic, the club cut the player's salary by 30% after obtaining the approval of the team committee, but was rejected by the Grand Cross.
It is reported that Udingen subsequently stopped paying Grand Cross wages. The judge made it clear that this was illegal and asked both parties to reach an agreement, but this has not yet been achieved. On Thursday, without giving any reason, Grand Cross was terminated by Udingen.
The 32-year-old Grand Cross helped Dortmund win two consecutive Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012. He was also a member of the 2014 World Cup champion.
