VfB sporting director Fabian Wohlgemuth: “We’ve been following Leonidas Stergiou’s development for a long time. He’s already gained valuable experience in the Swiss Super League and with Switzerland’s U21 side. We offer Leonidas a warm welcome to VfB and are looking forward to the future together.”
Leonidas Stergiou: “It feels unbelievably good and it’s wonderful to be able to sign a contract at a club like VfB Stuttgart. I’m very pleased that it worked out.

I’m looking forward to getting to know everything as soon as possible.”
