FIfa coins- Klaassen shoots Werder Bremen to victory at unofficial debut
Davy Klaassen convincingly made his debut for Werder Bremen on Friday. The 25-year-old midfielder played in the practice match with Arminia Bielefeld for the only goal of the game (1-0).
Klaassen shot up close five minutes before the break after a nice assist from Martin Harnik. The former Ajax player was changed after an hour and did not score in the remainder of the game.
The basis for Klaassen was remarkable, because his transfer from Everton to Werder Bremen was officially completed on Friday. The sixteen-time international of the Orange did not participate in any training.
"The expectations will be high in the upcoming matches now that I have scored directly in my first game", Klaassen joked afterwards. "Not everything went perfectly, but it's good to be here, I'm looking forward to the next race."
According to German media, Everton received 13.5 to 15 million euros for Klaassen, which is the most expensive purchase in the history of Werder Bremen.
The born Hilversummer can make its official debut on August 18 when Werder plays in the DFB Pokal against Regionalliga club Wormatia.
A week later the Bundesliga starts for Werder with a home match against Hannover 96.
