Berlin – Maurice Covic is Hertha through and through, just like his father Ante. The winger joined the club from SC Gatow back in 2011 and has since risen up the ranks, before finally signing his first professional contract with the Blue Whites. Now Covic, who has predominantly featured for the U23s side, has joined Ascoli Calcio on loan to gather the match practice he needs in order to continue his development.
The 21-year-old is still yet to appear in the Bundesliga so far this season. However, the two-footed attacker is a key part of the U23 side and has made nine appearances so far this season, with one goal and two assists. Now he has the chance to make the next step in his career as he hopes to impress during his time in the Italian second division.
