Rohr also confirmed that the 20-year-old goalkeeper is has a future with the team.

“He played for Austria U20, he can switch. But there’s a problem with obtaining him a passport in Austria

“He won’t be playing in the games. But he’s interested in switching. He asked to check out the atmosphere in camp. He’s only 20, has a good future” he said.
