Santiago Ascacibar has officially joined Hertha from Bundesliga 2 side Stuttgart.
The Argentina man has joined Jurgen Klinsmann’s Hertha where he will be wearing the number 18 shirt. Ascacibar received first cap for Argentina in 2018 under current coach Lionel Scaloni.
Still only 22 years old, speaking with Hertha’s website, here’s what Ascacibar had to say:
“I’m happy that the transfer has been completed in the winter break.
“After holding talks with Michael Preetz and Jürgen Klinsmann, I believe I can continue to develop as a player here and that we can achieve a lot together. I’m really looking forward to that and can hardly wait to get to know my new teammates. We’ll do everything we can to keep climbing up the table in the second half of the season.”
Sporting director Michael Preetz said this about the defensive midfielder:
“Santiago can operate in a number of roles in central midfield. At 22 he’s a young midfielder with the potential to develop further. He’s very strong in the tackle. We’re delighted to have recruited another very talented player into our squad.”
