Hertha Berlin head coach praises new signing Chidera Ejuke

Nigerian winger Chidera Ejuke is already turning heads at his new club, Hertha Berlin having impressed head coach Sandro Schwarz.

The head coach spoke highly of Ejuke along with the other additions to the Hertha Berlin squad, impressed with how positively they have started.

The Super Eagles star only just joined Hertha Berlin on loan from CSKA Moscow and is yet to even start a game for the Bundesliga side, making two substitute appearances which were enough to impress his new head coach.

Sandro Schwarz commented on Ejuke’s progression in just under a month since arriving at Hertha Berlin, “Chidi improves every training session”.

The German manager also offered his opinion on Ejuke’s gameplay, Ejuke is a one-on-one player. He has a good pace and a good move towards the goal”.

Schwarz’s recognition of Ejuke’s strengths and how they come into play for Hertha Berlin is a good omen for the Nigerian who will be looking to exploit the opportunities coming his way.

As earlier stated, Ejuke has played twice off the bench for Hertha Berlin so far as Schwarz continues to ease him into the team.

The 24-year-old played 47 minutes in the German Cup defeat to Eintracht Braunschweig and 34 minutes in the Bundesliga opener.

The league debit came in a 3-1 defeat in the derby away at Union Berlin but Ejuke gave a good account of himself in limited time.
