A midfielder (centre) who has previously plied his trade with Bundesliga giants Hamburger SV, the signing of this 25 year old half-German Hong Konger is without doubt a major one for his new club. With Kitchee having missed out on the title last season whilst also set to join the group stages of the AFC Champions League this year, his top level experience will be vital in their campaign ahead.

 HISTORY

Founded in 1931, Kitchee enjoyed a successful spell in the late 1940’s, winning the old First Division in the 1947-48 season and once again two years later. After their third title in 1964, the club slipped into relative obscurity until shortly after the turn of the century, when they finished as runners-up in the 2003-04 season following their return to the top flight. Since then, the club has gone from strength to strength, with the club winning 4 out of the last 5 championships, making them the third most successful side behind South China and Seiko in Hong Kong’s footballing history. They have also performed well since first entering into Asian continental competitions, and in 2015 they reached the semi-finals of the AFC Cup before eventually succumbing to Iraqi side Erbil in a closely fought 3-2 loss. With the likes of play-makers Fernando, Lam Zhi Gin and Sandro in their squad, they are a club that expect nothing but success in all competitions.
