Disciplinary woes plague rising star Paris Brunner after U17 World Championship triumph

Posted : 10 January 2024

Germany's U17 World Championship hero, Paris Brunner, is causing concern among club leaders as disciplinary issues continue to overshadow his success. Despite being named the tournament's "Player of the Tournament" and celebrated as "one of the most promising footballers in the world," Brunner's behavior has been a cause for worry.


Dortmund had suspended him indefinitely for disciplinary violations in October, but he was reinstated just before the U17 World Cup, with hopes that the experience would lead to improved conduct. However, recent events have cast doubt on that prospect.


Brunner's latest transgression occurred during Borussia Dortmund's training camp in Marbella, Spain, ahead of the Bundesliga's return from the winter break. He and another youth player, Cole Campbell, escaped from their hotel room in the middle of the night, prompting their expulsion from the squad upon their return. This incident follows a pattern of erratic behavior, raising questions about Brunner's maturity and commitment.


German media reports indicate that negotiations for a professional contract with Dortmund are underway for Brunner, despite the club's evident concerns about his character. The club seems hesitant to sever ties, recognizing his talent, but there is an expectation for Brunner to demonstrate significant improvement in his behavior.


The German Bundesliga provides ample opportunities for young talents, and Dortmund is keen for Brunner to capitalize on this platform. Coach Edin Terzic has reportedly engaged in a stern conversation with Brunner, emphasizing the need for a change in behavior to secure a promising future at the club.


Bild, a German publication, reflects the general sentiment, questioning Brunner's choices and expressing the difficulty in understanding why a player of his caliber struggles to comport himself appropriately. The consensus is that Brunner's actions are jeopardizing his standing within the club, and he is urged to rectify his behavior to capitalize on the opportunities presented in the Bundesliga.
