“I’m really looking forward to the new challenge,” said Melissa Kössler, who signed a contract in Hoffenheim until summer 2025. “The TSG and the team’s style of play suit me very well,” the 22-year-old calls the motives for her change, “the possibilities and conditions to develop and take the next steps are optimal.”
With TSG, she wants to “continue to play for the first three table positions in the future”. It is not enough for Hoffenheim this season, also because Kössler played a crucial role in the duel for a Champions League place in Kraichgau on the last match day. She met for Potsdam at TSG for the meantime. Turbine won 2-1 at the end and in the table two points more than the Hoffenheim women in the table two points before the end.
It was the tenth goal of Kössler, which can be found in the top ten in the list of scorers in the women’s Bundesliga. TSG trainer Gabor Gallai is looking forward to “a variably usable offensive player”. Kössler, who will be number 25 in the future, is “with her style of play a constant troublemaker on the opposing defensive, and she also convinces with an extremely good goal”.
So far, Kössler played 51 games in the Bundesliga and scored 14 goals.
