De Jong vows to fight for place

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Luuk de Jong has vowed to fight on despite falling down the pecking order in recent weeks, the Netherlands Under-21 international said.

De Jong, who signed for Gladbach in a €12 million transfer from Dutch side Twente in the summer, has only been used as a substitute in Gladbach's last two matches - a 1-0 home win over Augsburg and a 3-1 defeat at Wolfsburg. In the latter of those two games, De Jong was only used as the second-choice substitute as the Foals unsuccessfully tried to come back from 2-1 down as coach Lucien Favre brought Swedish striker Branimir Hrgota of the bench first.

"The coach has decided that way," De Jong told Express. "I hope, I can be part of the team again soon and help on the pitch.

"Of course you are disappointed when you are not playing. I need to show I want to play in training every day. There have been other strikers who did not have the perfect first year in Bundesliga. I scored important goals and I need to keep on working."

De Jong has so far made 21 appearances in his first season in Germany. He scored six goals, three either side of the winter break.

Borussia Monchengladbach, meanwhile, announced a record profit and turnover during the club's annual meeting on Monday. With a turnover of €122 million, Gladbach broke the €100 million mark for the first time in the club's history.

"When we started at Gladbach in 1999 the turnover was €18 million," Gladbach CEO Stephan Schippers said, putting the recent developments mainly down to sporting success. "That is the driving force."

Last season, the club had returned to European competition after a 16-year absence. Despite losing their Champions League qualification matches against Dinamo Kiev have been able to earn money in Europe. The club had also sold star players Marco Reus and Dante to the two German powerhouses, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich respectively.

The club also announced a club-record net profit of €15.24 million.

"Those figures and increases make us proud, but they are not the work of a single person. We have achieved it together," Schippers said.
