SC Freiburg is a team that is yet to win their first major silverware in both Germany and Europe. Their most significant domestic achievement is winning the 2. Bundesliga on four occasions, with the most recent one being in 2016. The coach of the team is Christian Streich, who has had the position since 2009, making a rather impressive by the club's standards run. Streich has managed to keep Freiburg in the Bundesliga throughout that time, only dropping a division once in 2015. He redeemed himself with instant promotion the following campaign. The Breisgau-Brasilianer, as they are commonly referred to, is currently looking to strengthen its line-up and solidify their position in the Bundesliga.
Freiburg Transfers over the years plus gossip
Joachim Löw from Eintracht Freiburg for an unknown amount in 1978 – Löw, the legendary German National Team manager, once played for the Bundesliga side. He was picked up from a local team that's no longer active. Playing as an attacking midfielder, he bounced between several clubs and had three separate stints with SC Freiburg, with which he has had his best form.
Papiss Cissé from Metz for €1.62 Million in 2009 – The controversial striker was at his prime during his time at SC Freiburg. He netted 39 goals in 67 matches for the team in his three-year-long stay and was honored for being the most efficient striker in the league. Cissé's performances were enough to earn him a move to the Premier League with Newcastle. The Magpies paid over €10 Million for the Senegalese, a lot more than the Bundesliga side spent for him three years earlier.
Roman Bürki from Grasshoppers for €1.8 Million in 2014 – Bürki’s only season at Freiburg was quite unfortunate for the squad as they got demoted at the end of the campaign with just a point lacking. The Swiss played in every single one of the league matches and had some decent performances despite the demotion. It was enough for Bundesliga colossus Borussia Dortmund to spot something in him as they hurried to buy him the following year.
Çağlar Söyüncü from Altinordu for €7.93 Million in 2016 – Freiburg did an excellent job scouting this talent in Turkey's second tier of football. Söyüncü was plying his trade under Altinordu before Christian Streich pushed for his signature. You probably didn't even see that in the transfer news. The second division side has never such a sum in a transfer fee, so they sure were glad. The Turkish International made 50 league appearances in his two years with Freiburg before being bought by Leicester City for €21.10 Million. Under the Foxes, he has been regarded as one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
Robin Koch from FC Kaiserslautern for €4 Million in 2017 – Robin Koch was just another transfer that turned out to be a substantial financial boost for the Bundesliga side. The defender played in 82 matches and even scored four goals during his 3-year spell with the Breisgau-Brasilianer. He picked up the interest of recently promoted to the Premier League side Leeds, who bought him in order to strengthen their defensive play for the season ahead. Freiburg again tripled their investment as Leeds paid €13 Million to acquire Koch
