Zoltan Stieber joins 1. FC Kaiserslautern
The 27 year old Hungarian agreed terms on a three year deal before training with his new team mates for the first time on Monday (15.08.16). HSV.de wish “Stibi“ the best of luck at his new club.
Zoltan Stieber has left HSV and dropped down a division. The Hungarian international winger has signed a three year contract at second division side 1. FC Kaiserlautern. The deal was concluded on Friday (12.08.16). He trained for the fist time at his new club on Monday: “Despite often facing adversity, Zoltan kept going and was a model pro. We wish him every success at his new club”, HSV club boss Dietmar Beiersdorfer told us.
Stieber joined the Rothosen from SpVgg Greuther Fürth (with whom he lost out to HSV in a relegation two legged play off thriller) during the summer of 2014 and made 29 Bundesliga appearances for the club, scoring three times in all. He never managed to become a first team regular in Hamburg and agree to join Nürnberg on loan during the last winter break. His positive attitude made him an important part of the squad. His claim to fame in Hamburg was undoubtedly his assist leading to the winning goal in the relegation play off game against Karlsruher SC after coming on as a substitute. Nicolai Müller rounded off good work by the Hungarian. The whole club wish Stibi the best of luck at his new club.
