Former Stuttgart captain Matthieu Delpierre insisted that Australian goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak should become the club’s first choice rather than Przemyslaw Tyton.
The 26-year-old shot-stopper decided to end his five-year stint with Borussia Dortmund and signed a three-year contract with Stuttgart in June.
Langerak reportedly will miss the first match of 2015/16 Bundesliga league season against Koln after suffering a setback when he injured a muscle in his upper leg in July, which made the Polish keeper Tyton set to start in goal.
“I think it’s a good time (in his career) to play and I think in Stuttgart they want him as a number one, that’s why I think it was a good move and a good time to do it,” Delpierre told Omnisport.
“I saw a few games from him and he was pretty good. He’s a good goalkeeper definitely. Hopefully he can come back quickly and take (the gloves) but I think he’s a good signing for Stuttgart.”
Langerak left Dortmund with just 19 league appearances, as he was generally placed as a back-up for German international Roman Weidenfeller.
