The twin brothers Gian-Luca and Davide-Jerome Itter were once considered to be the great young talents of the VfL Wolfsburg . But because of injuries, both of them have not yet made their breakthrough in the professional field.

Nowadays, footballers are particularly sought after at the beginning of their careers - this was also the case for Gian-Luca and Davide-Jerome Itter. Both learned to play football at FC Cleeberg, together they moved to Eintracht Frankfurt in 2011 and to VfL Wolfsburg in 2015, which provided the twins with professional contracts in January 2017.

  UFC 258 results: Kelvin Gastelum grinds out win over Ian Heinisch, snaps losing streak It wasn't pretty, but it was gritty, and that was good enough to get back in the win column Saturday night. The former interim middleweight title challenger went back to basics and earned himself a main-card victory over at UFC 258.

The judges’ scores at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas were  30-27, 30-27, and 29028, as Gastelum (17-6 MMA, 11-6 UFC) snapped a three-fight losing streak.

"We have the best conditions here to develop further and to start our professional career," said Gian-Luca, who was awarded the Fritz Walter Gold Medal in 2016, after the contract extension - but nothing came of it, either if the left-back received seven professional appearances; his brother was never allowed to play for the wolves in the Bundesliga .

In summer 2019 the twins went their separate ways for the first time. While Davide stayed in Wolfsburg and is still playing for the second team, Gian-Luca moved to SC Freiburg, who signed him for 2.5 million euros. However, both injured themselves during the preparation: Davide suffered a torn ankle ligament, and after his recovery the ligament tore again. Meanwhile, Gian-Luca was thrown back by bone edema and was deported to the Breisgau's second team in September, before he took his place on the bench in the Bundesliga in November and made his debut in the 3-1 win over Union Berlin on matchday 25 .

  UFC 258 reactions: Winning and losing fighters on social media Since the early days when the sport was anything but a mainstream endeavor the MMA industry has thrived and survived through various websites, forums, and, perhaps most importantly, social-media platforms. Fighters interact with fans, each other and many more through the…Fighters interact with fans, each other and many more through the likes of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, which helps outsiders get a deeper look into the minds of the athletes.

In the past few years, numerous talents have developed in idyllic Freiburg and dared to take the next leap, including Luca Waldschmidt. He and Gian-Luca still know each other from the youth division of Frankfurter Eintracht, and they spent a year together at the sports club; In the summer of 2020, however, Waldschmidt moved to the Portuguese top club Benfica for 15 million euros.

What's next for the twins?

Itter, on the other hand, does not get into step this season either, and could not record any use for the SCF. From September to November he commuted between the substitutes' bench and the second team until a muscle injury threw him off track again. In January it was awarded to Greuther Fürth, he cured his injury with the clover leaves, moved into the squad for the first time in February and celebrated his premiere in the 2-0 defeat in the DFB Cup round of 16 against Werder Bremen.

The loan is dated to the end of the season, after which it goes back to the Black Forest. What happens then is just as unclear as Davide's future. His contract expires in the summer, but he cannot prove his qualities because the regional league has been suspended due to the measures taken against the corona pandemic. He previously played seven games in which he provided six assists.

At the age of 22, the duo is still at the beginning of their careers. However, it is not possible to predict whether and when the breakthrough will occur. The previous career sounded promising, but it shouldn't pay off. Groundbreaking decisions could be imminent in the summer.
