Julian Schieber is leaving Borussia Dortmund to join fellow Bundesliga club Hertha BSC with immediate effect. The 25-year-old striker said: “I would like to thank the coaching staff, my great BVB teammates and the outstanding fans, who have always supported me.”
Schieber, who made 35 appearances in the Bundesliga (3 goals), 13 in the UEFA Champions League (1 goal) and eight in the DFB Cup (2 goals) for BVB, completed his medical in Berlin on Thursday. Both clubs agreed not to disclose the details of the transfer.
“I would like to thank the coaching staff, my great BVB teammates and the outstanding fans, who have always supported me, for two great years. I've learned a thing or two from Jürgen Klopp, practiced every day at the highest level and played in a Champions League final. These are things that will stay with me. We are parting on amicable terms, and that makes me very happy,” said Schieber.
BVB sporting director Michael Zorc said: “We would like to thank Julian for the eventful time we had together and wish him all the best for his future career.”
