The next Berlin youngster from our academy has made the jump to the first team. Ensar Ankasal signed a long-term contract that keeps him at the club until 2025. “Dynamic, a threat in front of goal, versatile: Ensar brings us a lot of quality and has already proved his quality in the U23s. We’re excited that he would like to make that next step at Hertha BSC,” expressed Fredi Bobic. Pablo Thiam is another excited party. “It is always a recognition of our collaboration when a young talent receives a professional contract. We’re looking forward to what Ensar will do and to seeing him develop further,” said the head coach of the academy.
12 goal contributions in 32 appearances
Aksakal is clearly excited about the task ahead: “To sign my first professional contract here at Hertha, is a really special feeling. I am very proud and thankful and will work hard in order to work my way into the Bundesliga team,” emphasised the 21-year-old. The left winger moved from 1. FC Union to the Blue-Whites in 2020. In 32 games for the U23s he has scored six times and also got a number of assists. The Berlin local has got five goal contributions (three goals, two assists) in his eight appearances this season. Hopefully there are more goal contributions and special moments in our shirt ahead!
