Hasan Salihamidzic (35), Chris (33) and Thomas Hitzlsperger (30) will no longer be with VfL Wolfsburg in the coming season. In discussions with VfL’s head-coach and general manager Felix Magath, the three players mutually agreed to end their time at the club. Chris and Salihamidzic both have contracts which expire on June 30th and will not be extended. With Thomas Hitzlsperger, whose contract was valid until 2014 agreed to a termination of his contract: “We mutually agreed to go our separate ways. Chris and Brazzo both wanted to re-orientate,” explained Felix Magath.
 
In the case of Thomas Hitzlsperger, Felix Magath granted the player’s wish: “It’s very unfortunate that, since he has been here, Thomas has gone from one injury to the next and was therefore unable to really help us last season. I have come to know and respect him as an exceptional sportsman and as a person both on and off the pitch,” said Magath. A string of injuries have led to Hitzlsperger only sporadically training with the team in recent months. Right now he is recovering from a tear to his outer knee cartridge. “After doing a lot of soul-searching, I came to the conclusion that my complete recovery must take top priority. Right now I can’t say if I can play a part in helping fulfil the high sporting demands set out by VfL Wolfsburg next season. Terminating the contract is the fairest option for all parties. I would like to heartily thank Felix Magath for the fate he has had in me,” remarked Hitzlsperger.
