Spell in Germany
The 32-year-old had been released after one season by RC Strasbourg, who finished second in Ligue 2 behind his new club last term, but was quickly snapped up by Metz coach Francis De Taddeo. "I feel like I did 12 years ago," said Strasser, who started his career with Metz in 1993/94. "I'm happy to be back." Strasser, who has won 79 international caps, left the Lorraine club in summer 1999 and subsequently spent three years at 1. FC Kaiserslautern and four at VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he captained the side.
