Rensing walks out on Fortuna

Former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Michael Rensing walked out on new club Fortuna Dusseldorf only hours before their opening game of the 2. Bundesliga season.

Rensing joined Dusseldorf following the expiry of his Leverkusen contract.

Rensing, 29, had completed a switch from Bayer Leverkusen to relegated Fortuna Dusseldorf on July 1 as he looked to establish himself as first-choice goalkeeper.

But on Monday, Fortuna coach Mike Buskens revealed that 20-year-old Fabian Giefer — who had earlier been linked with Schalke — was his preferred No. 1. 

The Rheinische Post reported that, prior to their relegation, Dusseldorf had offered Rensing assurances over first-team football. In May, he told Express: “I want to play. I signed when Fortuna were still in the top flight, and hoped they would save themselves. Now I will help them to rise again.”

Several German papers report that Rensing made a hasty exit from the club’s training facilities after a row, and Fortuna youngster Robin Heller took his position on the bench as Dusseldorf beat Energie Cottbus 1-0.

Rensing was once hailed as one of Germany’s biggest goalkeeping talents. In 2008, he succeeded Germany legend Oliver Kahn at Bayern, but was benched by then coach Jurgen Klinsmann later in the season. He won back his place under Louis van Gaal, but soon found himself replaced by veteran goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt.

Bayern decided not to renew his contract and he left in the summer of 2010 before eventually finding new employment with Cologne that December. After Cologne were relegated last, they sought to offload him as a result of his high wages and began playing youngster Timo Horn instead.

In August 2012, Rensing joined Leverkusen on a one-year deal as back-up for Bernd Leno, making two appearances over the course of last season before opting to move to Dusseldorf.

His next move is uncertain, with Augsburg — touted as a potential alternative destination — having told Die Welt they do not need his services.
