HB Køge henter kinesisk landsholdsspiller

Scroll for English version

HB Køge er glade for at kunne annoncere tilgangen af den kinesiske midtbanespiller Yujie Zhao. Zhao kommer til klubben på en to-årig aftale fra universitetsholdet Florida State Seminoles.

“Vores folk i USA har kigget på Yujie gennem en længere periode, og vi har også fået nogle gode referencer på hende fra flere af hendes tidligere trænere. Derfor tør vi også godt sige, at Yujie kommer til at forstærke os. Hun er teknisk stærk, målfarlig og pokkers svær at tage bolden fra. Så vi tror, hun kan hjælpe os med at tage det næste skridt og blive et endnu stærkere hold – også på den internationale scene,” siger Cheftræner Søren Randa-Boldt om tilgangen.

Yujie har repræsenteret flere af de kinesiske ungdomslandshold og fik sin debut på det kinesiske A-landshold tilbage i 2018. Hun var senest samlet med sin holdkammerater fra landsholdet i starten af august måned på en træningslejr i Californien.

Yujie Zhao er født og opvokset i Shanghai. Hun flyttede til Florida i 2018 for at studere på Florida State University, hvis universitetshold hun altså har repræsenteret de seneste fire år. Holdet har i den periode vundet NCAA – de amerikanske collegemesterskaber – to gange.

Nu glæder Yujie sig til at komme til Danmark, tilslutte sig HB Køge og jagte nye titler.

“Det har altid været en af mine store drømme, at spille professionelt i Europa. Det bliver en ære at optræde for HB Køge, en klub fyldt med passion og kreativitet. Jeg glæder mig til at blive en del af holdet og skrive historie med klubben,” siger Yujie Zhao.

HB Køge og Yujie Zhao afventer fortsat formel godkendelse af den ansøgte arbejdstilladelse inden overgangen endeligt gennemføres.

Two-time Danish Champions HB Køge is happy to announce the signing of Chinese midfielder Yujie Zhao.
Zhao joins the club on a two-year deal from Florida State Seminoles.

“Our people in the States have kept an eye on Yujie for a longer period of time and we have received some brilliant recommendations of her from her former coaches. Because of that, we dare to say that Yujie will strengthen us. She is strong technically, she has an eye for goal and she yes really difficult to take the ball away from. So she can help us taking the next step and become an even better team – including on the international scene,” HB Køge Head Coach Søren Randa-Boldt says.

Yujie represented the national youth teams of China on multiple occasions before making her debut for the China senior national team in 2018. Most recently she was with the team for a training camp in California in the beginning of august.

Yujie Zhao is born and raised in Shanghai. She moved to Florida in 2018 to study at Florida State University whose university football team she has represented for the past four years. During the period the team has won the NCAA twice.

Now Yujie is looking forward to going to Denmark to join Capelli Sport-owned HB Køge and aim to win new titles.

“It has always been one of my biggest dreams to play professionally in Europe. It will be an honour to represent HB Køge, a club full of passion and creativity. I can’t wait to be part of the team and to make history with the club,” Yujie Zhao says.

HB Køge and Yujie Zhao are still awaiting formal approval of her work permit application before the transfer can be finally completed.
