After the serious injury to goalkeeper Nikolai Rehnen, who had to undergo meniscus surgery, SV Sandhausen have strengthened their team with the recently club-less goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald (31).
Sandhausen has reacted to the loss of goalkeeper Rehnen as announced. The ex-Frankfurt and Bremen keeper Wiedwald has signed a contract at the Hardtwald until the end of the season.
“After the injury to Nikolai Rehnen, it was important for us to sign a goalkeeper from the German-speaking region who has experience in the 2nd Bundesliga and in the relegation battle,” Mikayil Kabaca, the SVS sporting director, is quoted as saying on the club’s website.
Wiedwald: “I have already experienced some relegation battles “
“I’m happy to be here and want to help achieve the goal of staying in the league. I’ve already experienced a few relegation battles and want to contribute my experience,” said Wiedwald, who played 73 Bundesliga games for Frankfurt and Bremen. His CV also includes 62 second division games for Duisburg.
Wiedwald’s last stop was FC Emmen in the Dutch Eredivisie, and the keeper has been without a club since the summer of 2021.
