"Sebastian is a quality player and one whose skills continue to develop,“ said Alexander Rosen, director of football at the club. At the end of the first half of the season, there were clear signs that Rudy had improved. “We are really happy to be able to continue working together.”
It's also an ideal solution for Rudy: “I've always said that I wanted to stay in Hoffenheim. I like the path that the club are on. It's fun to be a part of this team and I've noticed that people look to me.”
Rudy has been a Hoffenheim player since 2010. He has made 94 appearances in the Bundesliga, as well as seven in the German Cup. The midfielder has also made 21 appearances for Germany's U21 team (scoring five goals), and was once called up to the first team.
