Goalkeeper and American Jake Lazarus becomes 09er

With the 20-year-old American Jacob “Jake” Raymond Lazarus, SG Wattenscheid 09 can present an international new addition to the goalkeeping position. Jake is now part of coach Christian Britscho’s league squad and has been training with the team for several months. He will receive jersey number 13.

As a participant in the Mallorca training camp ” Train in Spain ” of the International Soccer Academy (ISA), the Californian goalkeeper was trained under professional conditions by Holger Gehrke (formerly Bundesliga professional at FC Schalke 04 and MSV Duisburg and goalkeeping coach of the Hungarian national team) and Eddie Loewen (formerly a professional at FC Remscheid and Arminia Bielefeld) and is now looking forward to the new challenge at SG 09.
