Ginter given pro deal

Matthias Ginter has been rewarded for his goal in Freiburg's 1-0 win over Augsburg at the weekend by being given a full-time professional contract with the club.

Ginter, 18, was promoted from the youth team and starred as Freiburg moved off the foot of the table last Saturday.

He was one of several players drafted into the first team by their new coach Christian Scheich, who himself was promoted from the role of youth team coach to first team coach this winter after Marcus Sorg was dismissed.

Ginter, Oliver Sorg, Immanuel Hohn and Alexander Schwolow have all been fitted out with their first professional contracts.

"We are delighted to be able to bring players from our youth team into the Bundesliga once again,'' said the club's director of sport Dirk Dufner on his club's website.

"This is a success for Freiburg's youth philosophy. Overall, we have 10 players in our squad who have come through our own youth training system.''
