Next Match: at home to Mainz, January 25
Stuttgart defender Moritz Leitner has not ruled out representing Austria rather than Germany when he has to decide on his national team future. The 21-year-old has a German and an Austrian parent and admits he may soon be faced with a decision over his true allegiance. "I was born and raised in Germany, but I did actually play a game for the Austrian under-17s," he told Sport Bild magazine. "I wouldn't like to say I have made my definitive decision, but I am playing for Germany's under-21s at present and I'm very happy there."
