Super Eagles Star Chidera Ejuke Joins Hertha Berlin on Loan
The super Eagles star suspended his contract with CSKA Moscow for the 2022–23 season, having taken advantage of the FIFA ruling relating to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Fans who are asking why the player left the top side who is supposed to be playing the Champions League to join a side that is not playing the Champions League, he is doing that because of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking on the Super Eagles player’s move the coach said the player will help his side. Ejuka who is just 24-year-old said he cannot wait to get started for the Hertha Berlin. He said: “I’m looking forward to playing for Hertha, to the Bundesliga and this special challenge. I want to do my bit in helping the club achieve its goals.”
Hertha Berlin coach Bobic, who was a member of the German side that won the 1996 European Championship and current Hertha Berlin Sporting Director, said on the club’s website saying: “Chidera has proved himself in several European leagues already, and brings good skills alongside speed and versatility. We’re sure that he’ll improve our game with his abilities.”
