Signing news: Wanderers secure ex-Bundesliga attacker Muller
Western Sydney Wanderers have found their replacement for the injured Radoslaw Majewski, signing German attacker Nicolai Muller.
Muller joins from German side Eintracht Frankfurt and has vast experience playing in the top two divisions in his homeland.
“We are very excited to have Nicolai join us this season and can’t wait to see him on the park,” Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said.
“Our members and fans should be very excited about this signing, Nicolai has been a top pro in Germany for many years playing in Bundesliga 1 and 2 as well as playing in the Europa League.
“We would like to welcome Nicolai into our Wanderers family and look forward to him helping us reach our goals this season.”
The 32-year-old has also played for German sides FSV Mainz 05, Hannover 96 and Hamburger SV, while he spent last season on loan at Hannover 96 alongside Wanderers midfielder Pirmin Schwegler.
Muller also played twice for the German national team, making his debut against Ecuador in a friendly match in 2013.
He joins the club on an injury-replacement deal for Majewski, who suffered a serious knee injury ahead of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season.
Majewski, who has returned to Poland to do his rehabilitation, is unlikely to feature for the Wanderers this campaign.
Muller has yet to arrive in Australia so is unlikely to be involved in Friday night’s clash with Melbourne Victory at Marvel Stadium.
But he could feature in the club’s Round 3 blockbuster against local rivals Sydney FC, in what will be the first derby at the new Bankwest Stadium.
