Kostic: I’ve kept my word

When you think of Eintracht Frankfurt’s stars, the first name in your head will probably be Filip Kostic, and for good reason too. The Serbian international has been directly involved in 75 goals in 135 appearances for Eintracht since signing in 2018 (first on loan and then permanently), scoring 28 times and adding a further 47 assists across all competitions.

Last season alone Kostic was directly involved in 18 goals in the Bundesliga, scoring four and recording 14 assists, with only Andre Silva involved in more goals for Eintracht. Silva left in the summer for RB Leipzig and Kostic’s performances didn’t go unnoticed either as there was a point when the Serbian looked set to leave.

Kostic was heavily linked with a move to Lazio and even went on strike in order to try and force a deal, much to the obvious unhappiness of the Eintracht fans. But any potential deal fell through in the final stages of the summer transfer window, with some reports claiming the move failed due to a typo which meant Lazio sent an email to the wrong address (missing a K in Frankfurt).

So Kostic remained and while his manager and teammates forgave him, he would have do work for the forgiveness of the fans. Well, the Serbian has been at his best in the early stages of the new Bundesliga campaign, scoring twice and recording three assists in six matches.

All five of those goal involvements have come in the past four games and Kostic was integral to Eintracht’s 2-1 win over Bayern Munich before the international break, setting up Martin Hinteregger for the equaliser and then scoring the winner.

And Kostic believes he has now lived up to the promise he made to fans after his failed move to Lazio.

“I promised the fans that I would come back even stronger and more motivated, regardless of everything, and I’ve kept my word,” Kostic told Bild.

“I don’t want to look back at what happened in the past. We are looking ahead,” added Kostic and went on to thank head coach Oliver Glasner.

“The coach is very committed to his work and a great professional. We talked, he showed understanding for the situation I was in, and I thank him for that.”
