Trio for a better lion future? How TSV 1860 plans with Richter, Frey and Guttau


Highlights: TSV 1860 München have signed Marlon Frey, David Richter and Julian Guttau. The trio are the only new signings at the club this summer. Günther Gorenzel has left the club to join Klagenfurt. The Lions have signed a goalkeeper, a central midfielder and a left winger. The transfer trio can hardly replace the 13 departures, but the Lions' bid in the summer of 2023 is: save, join forces - and hope for a sporting miracle.

As it stands, Marlon Frey, David Richter and Julian Guttau remain the only new signings to TSV 1860. We introduce the three lions.

Munich – Three in one fell swoop – the expected farewell transfer triple of outgoing 1860 sporting director Günther Gorenzel. Before the Austrian moves to Klagenfurt, he quickly put together a squad for the coming season. Of course, the transfer trio can hardly replace the 13 departures, but the Lions' bid in the summer of 2023 is: save, join forces - and hope for a (sporting) miracle.

Unlike last year, the newcomers came in a package: a goalkeeper, a central midfielder and a left winger. Offenbach's Regionalliga keeper David Richter (24) is expected to put pressure on Marco Hiller, who has been set since 2017. At MSV Duisburg, the Lions tracked down defensive clearer Marlon Frey (27). Finally, up front, Julian Guttau (23) from SC Freiburg II is expected to provide flank runs. The left winger is intended as a replacement for Joseph Boyamba. Our newspaper introduces the three newcomers – and explains what coach Maurizio Jacobacci is planning with what are probably the only transfers this summer.

Julian Guttau: Versatile on the left wing

The 23-year-old Guttau was a perennial favourite with last season's surprise team. The Halle native was on the pitch in 35 of 38 games, scoring two goals himself and setting up five more. Guttau also played in both games against 1860, especially in Freiburg's 2-0 win in the first leg. The frequent player can play any position on the left side.

In the future, he will feed the nine-man Fynn Lakenmacher, who is set as Bear's successor, with usable passes. "I had a very good conversation with coach Maurizio Jacobacci," Guttau was quoted as saying. His philosophy of football is congruent with his ideas on the pitch: "In addition, 1860 Munich is a huge club. That's why I didn't have to think long after Günther Gorenzel's request."

Marlon Frey is to replace Marius Wörl and close the centre with Tim Rieder

After Meris Skenderovic, the Lions will have a second player who brings Europa League experience to the table. Born in Düsseldorf, he trained at Leverkusen (2004 to 2017) and made his professional debut in a Werkself jersey before landing at MSV Duisburg via Kaiserslautern, Eindhoven (Jong-PSV) and Sandhausen, where he completed his league potpourri from 2021. His CV includes nine first-division, 35 second-division and 87 third-division appearances, as well as 31 games in Holland's second division plus the aforementioned trial appearances in the European Cup (Leverkusen's round of 2016 duels with Villarreal in March <>).

"Marlon brings a lot of skills that we need in the transition game from offense to defense," enthuses the outgoing Gorenzel. Frey emphasizes that he was impressed by the charisma of the lions and the atmosphere at Giesing's heights as a guest: "Although I had a few options at home and abroad, the idea that Maurizio Jacobacci and Günther Gorenzel showed me simply convinced me." In 1860, Frey was to close the centre alongside Tim Rieder – as a replacement for Marius Wörl, who had been lost to Hannover 96.

"He's a goalkeeper who plays along, exudes calm and security, and his mentality suits the Lions well."
