A news source claims that Hertha Berlin and Chidera Ejuke of CSKA Moscow have signed an agreement. The 24-year-old will sign a loan agreement with the team without a purchase option.
Sandro Schwarz, the head coach of Hertha Berlin, is familiar with Ejuke from his days as the leader of CSKA’s rival Dynamo Moscow.
Chidera Ejuke, Possible Move
For €11.5 million, Ejuke moved from Heerenveen to CSKA Moscow in 2020. The Nigerian international has subsequently appeared in 65 matches in all competitions, recording 10 goals and six assists. He has acted as Myziane Maolida’s opposition on the wings, where the Frenchman has underwhelmed since joining from Nice last summer.
Schwarz was named head coach of Hertha Berlin on June 2 after the team successfully defended its Bundesliga position against Hamburg.
This summer, Die Alte Dame has already made hiring from the Russian market after acquiring Rubin Kazan’s 25-year-old central defender Filip Uremovi on a free transfer. Jonjoe Kenny, who played for Schalke in 2019–20, has also been acquired by Hertha on a free transfer from Premier League team Everton.
Hertha Berlin Past And History Highlights
Hertha, Berliner Sport-Club, also known as Hertha BSC, Hertha Berlin, Hertha BSC Berlin, or just Hertha, is a German professional football club with its headquarters in the Westend neighborhood of Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf municipality.
The Bundesliga is the top division of German football, where Hertha BSC competes. Hertha BSC was established in 1892, and in Leipzig in 1900, it was a founding member of the German Football Association.
One of its four young men who created the group had undertaken a day trip on the steamship with the blue and white smokestack in 1892, giving the club its original name, BFC Hertha 92. The name Hertha is a spelling variation of the Germanic fertility goddess Nerthus.
In 1930 and 1931, the squad captured the German title. The Olympiastadion has been Hertha’s stadium since 1963. The German name for the club is Die Alte Dame, which means “The Old Lady.” Hertha BSC GmbH & Co. KGaA was established in 2002 to handle the professional, youth, and under-19 teams’ athletic endeavors.
Hertha BSC has played its games in the Olympiastadion in Berlin since 1963. The venue was initially constructed for the 1936 Summer Olympics.
Hertha made plans to construct a new 55,000-seat stadium public on March 30, 2017, with a completion date of 2025, when their lease at the Olympiastadion expires.
The club cited a number of reasons for this choice, one of which being the Berlin team’s exclusivity as the only Bundesliga team without the need for a dedicated football ground. The club admitted in the announcement that now the Olympiastadion was adequate for important international and national competitions but was too big for the typical Hertha home crowd, with only 64% of seats filled, as compared to the Bundesliga median of 92 percent.
Chidera Ejuke Past And History Highlights
Chidera Ejuke, a left winger for both the Nigerian national team and Russian Premier League club CSKA Moscow, was born in Nigeria on January 2, 1998.
Ejuke committed to a three-year deal with Eliteserien team Vlerenga in March 2017. He left Turkey in July 2019 to play for SC Heerenveen, eschewing offers from teams like Besiktas JK and Lazio Roma.
Ejuke from Heerenveen was signed by CSKA Moscow on August 28, 2020, to a four-year deal.
