Metzelder to leave Dortmund at end of season

Metzelder to leave Dortmund at end of season

Germany central defender Christoph Metzelder will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.
Metzelder did not accept Dortmund's offer for a contract extension and the club has now withdrawn it, allowing Metzelder to become a free agent at the end of the season.
"We gave Christoph enough time to consider our very good offer. We had open and fair talks but now we have to think about personnel for the next season," sports director Michael Zorc said Monday.
The 26-year-old Metzelder already has two World Cup tournaments behind him but his career has been interrupted by frequent injuries.
