Sofian Chahed Claims Plenty Of Suitors Despite Being Released By Hertha Berlin

Chahed is ready and eager to experience life at another club for the first time in his career...
Sofian Chahed has been keen to let it be known that he has plenty of options at his disposal after Hertha Berlin opted against renewing his contract.

The 26-year-old defender accused coach Lucien Favre and now former general manager Dieter Hoeness of duping him by assuring him he has a new deal coming, only to leave him standing without one after ten years of exclusive service to the capital club.

Now, he will have to contemplate about playing for another club for the first time in his professional career, but the Berlin native insists he is ready for a new adventure.

"I am not afraid regarding my future," Chahed told BILD.

"There are already talks with clubs in the Bundlesliga, Spain and even England.

"Though I am now having to look back on ten great years at Hertha, I feel I have grown as a professional.

"There is always a second coming in life though. So who knows, one day I might be back - but only if (manager) Lucien Favre is not there!"
