Young goalkeeper Tim Goller, who has been at the club since he was 13, has signed his first pro deal on his 18th birthday, which will run until 2025. “Tim has shown that he’s one of our most talented youngsters in recent years with his consistent performances. His time with the first team in Florida and his U23s debut against Jena just underlined his excellent progress,” commented Fredi Bobic on Thursday.
Regular for the youth teams, debut for U23s
The Berlin-born goalkeeper has been in the academy since 2017 and was first-choice goalkeeper for the U17s last season. They reached the semi-finals of the German Championship after winning their regional division. After travelling with the first team to Florida for the winter training camp and playing in a friendly for the first time earlier this month, he made his debut for our U23s in the Regionalliga Nordost last Sunday – and kept a clean sheet against FC Carl Zeiss Jena!
