Hertha BSC made their first new signing for the 2023/24 season on Tuesday, securing the services of Florian Niederlechner. The 32-year-old striker will join the Blue-Whites from FC Augsburg in the summer and has signed a contract until 2025. “We are pleased that we have been able to bring Florian Niederlechner to Hertha BSC. In him, we are getting an experienced attacker who brings a goal threat, as well as a good mentality and physicality. He has regularly proven all of this in the Bundesliga in the last few years,” said Fredi Bobic, emphasising the attacker’s abilities.
65 direct goal involvements in the Bundesliga
Niederlechner has up until now made 181 Bundesliga appearances for 1. FSV Mainz 05, SC Freiburg and FC Augsburg. In this time, he has been directly involved in 65 goals, scoring 44 times and getting a further 21 assists. He has also scored four times and made seven assists in 19 DFB-Pokal appearances, numbers that the Ebersberg-born forward would like to build on during his time in Berlin.
