We are happy to announce the signing of 21 year-old left back Leon Klassen on a long term deal. Klassen, a current Russian youth international, joins us from Austrian side WSG Tirol, where he has been playing for half a season.
Born and brought up in Germany, Klassen spent his formative years in the FC Köln youth system before joining 1860 München in 2017. Having established himself as a key part of the 1860 side, Leon earned a move to the Austrian Bundesliga. In his 17 league appearances for Tirol, he notched up six assists, and established himself as one of the best full-backs in the league.
Capable of playing up and down the left flank, Klassen is undoubtedly a player that will add value to our already talented squad. His form has also been noticed by the Russian national setup, who handed him his U21 debut earlier this year.
Once again, we welcome Leon to the club, and wish him the very best!
