Holstein Kiel: Alexander Mühling leaves the club in the summer: "Mr.  111" says Goodbye

Alexander Mühling to Leave Holstein Kiel After 7 Years

“It was by far the longest, most formative and most beautiful station of my career so far!” Alexander Mühling (30) leaves Holstein Kiel at the end of the season. His contract expires in the summer.

Mühling is one of the safest penalty shooters in the 2nd division. In the six years since Kiel’s promotion, he has sunk 20 out of 23 penalties. Sometimes tough, sometimes cheeky. Bosses and fans could almost always rely on his strong nerves from the point.

The offensive man (came from Sandhausen in 2016) is also the professional with the most games and goals in the club’s second division history with 176 appearances and 38 goals.

Twice Mühling narrowly missed the first promotion to the Bundesliga with Holstein in the relegation. When captain Hauke ​​Wahl was out for a long time last season due to glandular fever, his deputy led the team onto the pitch.

“Alexander has done a great job for Holstein Kiel over the past seven years and has contributed to the sporting success of our club with his good performances,” says sporting director Uwe Stöver.

Mühling: “I was able to witness many special moments, such as promotion to the second division in 2017, the relegation games against VfL Wolfsburg in 2018 (1 :3, 0:1, ed.) and 1. FC Köln 2021 (1:0, 1:5, ed.) as well as the unique DFB Cup season 2020/21, for which I am very grateful am. I have always felt very comfortable not only in the club, but also with my family here in the region.”

This season, appearances have become rarer. Eight times in the starting XI, nine times as a substitute, five times he was left out. Mühling: “After many years in Kiel, however, I now have the desire to change again and look for a new challenge.”
