Waldemar Sobota and Johannes Flum have left FC St. Pauli after the club elected not to extend the contracts of the two midfielders, which expired at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Waldemar Sobota, 33, joined St. Pauli from Belgian top-division side Club Brugge in January 2015, initially on loan, before the Boys in Brown signed the attacking midfielder on a permanent deal in April 2016. Sobota went on to make 148 competitive appearances (15 goals, 15 assists) for the Boys in Brown. No other foreign player has played more times for the club than the Pole.
Johannes Flum, 32, arrived at the Millerntor from Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt in January 2017. He scored five goals and made another three in his 80 competitive appearances for the club.
Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "I'd like to thank Waldi and Flumi for their efforts on behalf of the club. After conducting an analysis of the squad with Timo Schultz, we've decided to go in a different direction in the corresponding positions and against an extension of the expired contracts. I'd like to wish both players all the best for their future careers."
