Sebastian Langkamp leaves Hertha BSC

Berlin – Hertha BSC and Sebastian Langkamp have parted ways shortly before the end of the transfer window. The defender, having spent his last four and a half years in a Blue-White shirt, has moved from the Spree to the Weser to join the ranks of SV Werde Bremen. During his time there, Sebastian featured 106 times in the Bundesliga for Hertha and is seeking a new challenge in Bremen. “Sebastian has given his all for this club during his time here. He’s been a reliable part of our defence and integral to the team on and off the pitch. We spoke internally and he told us of his desire for a new challenge. Sebastian has played a huge part in this team’s development in recent years. Therefore, he had to grant him his wish for a change of scenery and we hope everything goes well for him in Bremen,” said Hertha BSC’s sporting director, Michael Preetz about the transfer.

The 30-year-old has played a total of 121 competitive games for Hertha and scored one goal for the club. As a regular in the heart of the defence, he has contributed a lot to the club during his time. Langkamp said goodbye to the coaching team, his fellow players, and the rest of the club on Wednesday morning, and said: “I have really enjoyed my time in Berlin. I love the city and the club even more. Now, I have the opportunity for a new challenge; a challenge that was unexpected and came at short notice. I am proud of what I have achieved at the club and how it has developed over the past four and a half years. For that I would like to thank the whole Hertha family, especially the backroom staff and I wish the club all the best in the future.”
