Sven Ulreich signs for HSV
FC Bayern have agreed to allow Sven Ulreich to move to Bundesliga 2 club Hamburger SV with immediate effect. The goalkeeper has been with the German record champions since arriving from VfB Stuttgart in summer 2015. He's celebrated five German league titles, three DFB Cup successes, four DFL-Supercups as well as the recent triumphs in the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup. In total, the 32-year-old made 70 appearances between the posts for Bayern.
„"I would like to thank Sven for his professional attitude and his service to FC Bayern, and wish him all the best for his new challenge.””
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic: "Sven is a great team player, which he's proven in his five years at FC Bayern. When Manuel Neuer was injured in 2017, Sven filled in for him very well. HSV are getting a goalkeeper with international experience who can take on a leadership role. I would like to thank Sven for his professional attitude and his service to FC Bayern, and wish him all the best for his new challenge."
„“I wish to thank FC Bayern and the fans for five wonderful and successful years."”
Head coach Hansi Flick: "Sven is a consummate professional and has helped our team a lot. As back-up goalkeeper, he's given 100 per cent in every training session and delivered a top performance whenever he's been called upon in matches. Sven wants to play more regularly, which is why he wants to make this move. Hamburger SV are a top club with clear ambitions. We wish Sven every success – and hope to see each other again in the Bundesliga next season. He was very well-liked in our squad, we'll miss him as a person and a colleague."
Sven Ulreich: "I wish to thank FC Bayern and the fans for five wonderful and successful years. I've learned an incredible amount here and always felt at home. The togetherness in this team is simply phenomenal. I'm now looking forward to a new challenge at HSV and I want to do my bit in getting the club back into the Bundesliga – where I'll look forward to a reunion with FC Bayern."
