Harry Koch, father of ex-Leeds defender Robin Koch, reveals why his son left the club.
The 26-year old left Elland Road to join Eintracht Frankfurt on a loan deal for the 2023/24 season. The deal was reported to have a €500k loan fee.
Harry Koch had this to say on why Robin left this summer:
“Of course, as a father and mother, you are happy that you only have to drive an hour to the game and your son is closer again. We were also happy to come to him in Leeds. It’s just a bit further to get there. It’s nice to have him back.”
“The three years in Leeds helped him a lot, he matured in England. Dealing with the cleverness and toughness there is a big challenge. England is the best league in the world. You play against world-class strikers every week. He proved himself there and he can be proud of that.”
