Mike Hanke Completes Gladbach Move

Hanke Signs For Gladbach.

Hannover’s super-sub, Mike Hanke, has completed a transfer to relegation-threatened Gladbach, and will join the club as they resume training throughout the winter break.

Hanke has been in encouraging form this season, with three goals in seven short substitute appearances. Despite his goals, Hanke was not getting the kind of game time his form warrants, so a move, even to Gladbach, was going to be in his best interests. Hanke spoke to the press about his stint at Wolfsburg, and how that experience will help him succeed at Gladbach:

“I’ve previously battled against relegation when I was under contract with Wolfsburg. I know what’s needed in this situation. I’ve never dropped before and I’m planning to keep it that way.”

Gladbach fans will hope Hanke can boost the side and lift them to safety, although at the moment that’s looking a bridge too far. Still, with half of the season left, anything is possible. Hanke will be a welcome addition at Gladbach, and he will definitely bolster his new side’s attacking options.

  1. I think this is going to be a very busy winter transfer market. With so many top teams hanging out at the bottom of the table I don’t think they have a choice but to make changes.

    And Bayern has to jump in as well too. Just adding Robben back in to the mix will not cover their problems in the back.

    Further, will Mainz, Freiburg, and Hannover make moves to add players to maintain their table positions? Those teams are usually sellers (Hannover already has!) so it will be interesting to see if they are willing to make some gambles with their finances.

    So I think this will be one of the more interesting winter periods in quite some time.

  2. I completely agree, I think it’s going to get very hectic. Should make for a crazy second half to the season. I’d love to see Hannover some of the Bundesliga’s surprise packages, especially Hannover and Mainz, keep up their form and grab a European spot at the expense of the league’s unexpected stragglers, Wolfsburg and Hamburg. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Stuttgart as well.

  3. Definately, it’s going to be a great transfer. We have starting to being an underdog for every league team this year, which must be forgeten in the second half of the season. It’s obvious that we are capable of striker force in our squad, but there are problems all around them. Idrissou and Bobadilla suffers from discipilnary issues, while De Camargo and Matmour scarce the experience. Taking into consideration of what I really mean, Hanke will be a real asset. Now getting one strong and fit defender, who has a Bundesliga experience, will get us back on track. happy holidays and Long life 4 G’ladbach.
