Double change for Stina Johannes
Adventure in Japan.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper of SGS Essen is now a player for the Japanese league leaders, INAC Kobe. She signed a contract there until next summer.
She also signed a 3-year contract with Eintracht from Frankfurt at the same time, which is valid from 01.07.2022.
The U17 European champion has been under contract with SGS Essen since 2018 and now wants to take the next step in her development. Due to a back injury, she had to take a long break, but is now fit again and has already played 2 competitive games for the 2nd team of SGS.
Stina on her decision to go to Japan: „For me, the possibility of finding experience and playing practice in a country like Japan was immediately very fascinating. In the end, everything happened very quickly, so close to the end of the transfer period there, and I’m looking forward to the next 3 months in Kobe. Now I’m just waiting for my visa and entry permit and then I’m off.“
Stina on her move to Frankfurt: „Eintracht Frankfurt is an attractive club with huge potential. We have all seen the development over the past few years. Here in Frankfurt, I see the opportunity to develop further in the best possible way and also the chance to play internationally in the next few years. I also worked with goalkeeper coach Marcel Schulz for a year in Essen, I really appreciate him and I’m looking forward to seeing him again. My anticipation is huge to attack here with Eintracht.“
We are very happy for you, Stina!
