Hasan Salihamidzic announces separation from Fiete Arp

Three years after moving from Hamburger SV to FC Bayern, Fiete Arp is finally moving on to Holstein Kiel in the 2nd Bundesliga. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic comments on the unfortunate engagement of the former top talent in Munich.

Fiete Arp is finally moving from FC Bayern to Holstein Kiel. Both clubs confirmed this on Friday.

The striker has signed a contract with the North Germans until 2025. In Kiel, where the 22-year-old played 26 games in the 2nd Bundesliga and in the DFB Cup on loan last season (three goals, two assists), the attacker should get started now. He hadn’t managed to do that in Munich before.

Separation from Bayern “the best” for Fiete Arp

“Fiete Arp came to FC Bayern as one of the greatest German offensive talents. He made his first Bundesliga appearances for Hamburger SV and played a very good U17 World Cup for Germany,” said Hasan Salihamidzic and added: “Sometimes things come true Unfortunately not expectations.”

The German record champions “discussed our options in detail” with Arp, the sporting director continued, “and in the end we were both convinced that it would be best if Fiete embarked on a new path.”

Fiete Arp “very grateful” for moving to Kiel

In Kiel they are looking forward to the centre-forward, who was born nearby in Bad Segeberg.

Arp “settled in well last season. He faced the challenges of the team and the league professionally and indicated his potential,” said Uwe Stöver, Kiel’s former sports manager. “We are convinced that he will bring us a lot of joy here and will continue to grow in his development.”

The former HSV jewel himself said that the decision for Holstein was not difficult for him.

“The talks with those responsible at the club and with the coaching staff have encouraged me that this step is the right one at this point,” said Arp. “I’m very grateful that everyone made this possible and I’m looking forward to a really great season.”
