Anel Hadzic is moving to FC Wacker Innsbruck. The 2014 World Cup participant was last without a club and received a contract in Innsbruck until the end of the season, including an option for another year.
“After my last stations in Turkey and Hungary, it was my wish to return to Austria. With FC Wacker Innsbruck I was able to find the ideal club for this. As an opponent, it was never easy to play in Innsbruck – so I’m all the more looking forward to being able to play in front of the fans as a great player in this great stadium. I’m hot to finally be able to play soccer again and I want to use my experience to go ahead on and off the pitch!
“Anel ( Hadzic’s note) has already gained a lot of experience with over 200 games in the Austrian Bundesliga and appearances in the Bosnian national team. With this experience, he should take on a leadership role in the team and especially help our young players. He can play in his regular position in defensive midfield as well as in central defense and will give us more stability on the defensive. ”
