HSV Hamburg returns to their squad danish left-winger Casper Mortensen! The 32-year-old leaves the current Champions League winner FC Barcelona to return to his former club. Due to knee injuries, Dane could not play as much as he wanted for the Catalonian giant. Mortensen is not a new face in Hamburg, he already played there from 2015 to 2016, but after the insolvency and the forced relegation, Mortensen moved to TSV Hannover-Burgdorf, where he was also the Bundesliga top scorer. In 2018, he then joined FC Barcelona.
HSV has already signed six new players – Mortensen, Johannes Bitter, line player Manuel Späth (FC Porto), right winger Frederik Bo Andersen (GOG Gudme/Denmark) as well as the back players Nicolai Theilinger (Frisch Auf Göppingen) and Asat Waljullin (Eulen Ludwigshafen).
