Away from January, Jeremiah St. Juste could return to the Mainz team on Friday against Wolfsburg. The guarantee was given by coach Bo Svensson, who also granted Sporting the 25-year-old central defender he was looking for to leave at the end of the season.
“To think that St. Juste and Niakhaté will stay next season is very optimistic. One can still happen, two don’t believe. Everyone sees the quality they have, they are at the peak of their football maturity and a year after their contract expires they will be very desirable. Here we are. I value them a lot, not only as players, but also as people, they are real leaders, and if they leave, I’m very grateful for the time they spent here, ”he explained.
A graduate of Heerenveen, Jeremiah St. Juste arrived in Mainz in 2019 after a spell in Feyenoord. He has 69 matches and three goals in the German club.
