Braunschweig to the Bundesliga: But will Edwini-Bonsu be back? By Steven Sandor Posted on April 27, 2013 2 0 611 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Eintracht Braunschweig is going to the playground that’s ruled by the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. With a 1-0 win over FC Ingolstadt Friday, Braunschweig — home to Edmonton’s Randy Edwini-Bonsu — guaranteed it could do no worse than second in the Bundesliga 2. standings. That means Braunschweig will move up to the Bundesliga in 2013-14. But will Edwini-Bonsu go up with them? He is a free agent at the end of the season. Edwini-Bonsu, who was part of the Vancouver Whitecaps before making the move to Germany was called up for Canada’s most recent friendlies, playing in March losses to Japan and Belarus. But the forward hasn’t seen a lot of playing time in Germany this season. Braunschweig has played 31 times, and Edwini-Bonsu has appeared in just eight games, with no starts. Randy Edwini-Bonsu Edwini-Bonsu’s total minutes on the pitch through those eight appearances… 124. According to the league’s official stats, he’s had one attempt at goal all season long. Of course, now that the team is moving up, new players will be brought in and, as always, management will decide which of the players from Bundesliga 2. will be up for the voyage up a division. Canadian soccer followers have got almost used to stories of our players being part of squads that earn promotion, then are released, sold or loaned before getting the chance to play in the top divisions.
