Hamburg / Munich (dpa) – Second division football team Hamburger SV has confirmed the commitment of FC Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
“Moin HSV fans. Now I’m flying for you,” said the 32-year-old in a video HSV published on Twitter. Ulreich receives a three-year contract with the Hanze. “HSV will have an internationally experienced goalkeeper who can take a leading role,” Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidžić said in a statement.
According to the Hamburger, Ulreich successfully completed his medical examination on Saturday. “After the departure of Julian Pollersbeck, it was clear that we would get another goalkeeper in the team. We are very happy that we have succeeded in this with Sven Ulreich,” said HSV sports director Jonas Boldt, according to an announcement from HSV. .
Ulreich was a substitute behind national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer at FC Bayern. Bayern coach Hansi Flick regretted his departure: “He wanted to play, so he made the switch to HSV. HSV is a top club, he has clear goals, they want to be promoted,” said the Munich coach on Saturday.
The change was already clear: “We had been exchanging for several weeks,” Ulreich quotes in HSV’s announcement. “After the conversations with Jonas Boldt and Michael Mutzel, I had a very good feeling and really wanted to do it.”
