Gjasula, who has been wearing a gray helmet since a broken zygomatic bone seven years ago, set a Bundesliga record last season with 17 yellow cards. The HSV managers around sports director Jonas Boldt agreed that after two missed promotions (twice fourth place) the team needed an “aggressive leader” in midfield – and they found it with Gjasula.
The HSV brings the helmet professional for the longed-for dream of ascent!
Gjasula signs with HSV for two years
The defensive midfielder, who played in the 3rd division at Halleschen FC two years ago, is considered a hard-hitting clearer and destroyer before the defense. The new HSV coach Daniel Thioune (previously Osnabrück) is also impressed by the 1.92 meter giant.
Gjasula will come to the Elbe free of charge and, after passing the medical check, will most likely sign a two-year contract.
In addition to HSV rivals Hannover 96 and Fortuna Düsseldorf, first division club Union Berlin was also very interested in the Albanian international (5 A appearances), who ultimately decided to switch to the former Bundesliga Dino.
Good from an HSV point of view: Gjasula knows how to advance, after all he made the leap from the second division to the Bundesliga last year with Paderborn.
