Ejuke Set To Undergo Medical At Hertha Berlin

Chidera Ejuke has arrived Berlin, German capital, to undergo the obligatory medical before joining Hertha Berlin on loan from CSKA Moscow, according to Kicker.

Ejuke’s delayed arrival was due to the player awaiting his visa from the German embassy in Moscow.

Upon completion of the medical, Ejuke will then travel to Hertha’s training camp in Burton-upon-Trent, where he will meet his new teammates.

The 24-year-old made use of the new FIFA regulations that allow players in Russia and Ukraine to suspend their contracts.

The former Heerenveen star made 55 appearances for the Russian giants and scored 10 goals.

Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin appointed Sandro Schwarz as head coach last month but have been relatively quiet in the transfer window.

Filip Uremović and Jonjoe Kenny arrived on free transfers whilst Ivan Šunjić has joined the Bundesliga club on loan from Birmingham City.

    Even Hertha Berlin is not good enough for a player of Ejuke’s calibre. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AC Milan should be queuing up for his signature. Nigerian players like low mentality too much.

      Enough of this big talks from you and money post, it’s just too unrealistic because the said players need more than just dribbling abilities to get up there. I can’t stop laughing but let’s cool the hype if this said players are good then they should take in the impact goals assists and performances at their present clubsides.

        Nigerians don’t understand European football. Europeans play football like an army formation. In fact, this is the root of most ball team sports. You would hear an English man claiming that the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. What he means is that the tactical skills of advancing forward with the ball formed the basis of his military tactics at the platoon level.

        Tactically, this means in team sports that a team advances as a group towards the opposition’s goal half. The speed at which they advance is determined by their passing game i.e. how quickly they pass the ball forward when they gain possession.

        In this tactical scheme, a player who dribbles a lot to entertain is like a soldier who slows the advance of an army unit to show off his fighting prowess. This is not to say that they dislike dribbling, but dribbling must advance the movement of the ball into the opposition’s half and not slow it down. It must also take out opposition players from defensive positions behind the ball.

        Ejuke has the skills but doesn’t understand the tactical game. He will very often slow the pace of an attack by holding onto the ball too long or by seeking to dribble 2 or 3 players drawn to mark him by the threat of his skill when a simple pass to a teammate would take these players out of their defensive formation while maintaining the pace of attack.

        This is the difference between him and Messi. Messi only dribbles to progress the ball into the opposition’s half and is ever ready to play a pass that takes players out of their defensive role.

        Kevin de Bruyne’s only skill is his ability to weave the ball using his passing skill in such a way it takes players out of their defensive formation. He does this by passing the ball forward between two opposition players to a teammate in an advanced position (weaving the ball) this takes them out of any assigned defensive role.

        I wish Ejuke all the best at his new club, but to rise to a higher level of performance he requires better, tactical awareness, decision making and all round football intelligence.

      Keep deceiving yourself. Look at the club you are mentioning for Ejuke, is just laughable. Is it for him to go and play for the U23 TEAMS or what? Because he will even find making 2nd team difficult. Hertha Berlin is Okay, from there he will develop and be presented to the big guns. You need more than dribbling to play in those clubs!!!!!

    MY PROBLEM with EJUKE is HE is not a TEAM PLAYER yet!

    HE is too SELFISH.

    HE can DRIBBLE pass EVERYBODY, forgetting to PASS and then before you know it it’s up for a GOAL KICK…

    So yes HERTHA BERLIN is a GOOD MOVE for HIM.

    Let HIM go there and DEVELOP HIMSELF
