Goalkeeper Langerak leaves Dortmund for Stuttgart

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak has signed a three-year contract with Bundesliga rival Stuttgart, Goal.com reports.

The Australia international, 26, joined Dortmund from Melbourne Victory in 2010, making his debut in a 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in February of the following year.

Langerak made nine league appearances for the Signal Iduna Park outfit last term and became a regular between the posts in the latter stages of Jurgen Klopp’s stint as coach.

The shot-stopper is the second goalkeeper to arrive at Stuttgart in a matter of days, with Przemyslaw Tyton having joined from PSV last week.

Dortmund, now coached by Thomas Tuchel, brought in Roman Burki from Freiburg earlier this month to compete with Germany goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
