Erwin Hoffer: from Rapid Vienna to SSC Napoli

The Rapid Vienna striker and member of the Austrian national football team, Erwin Hoffer, leaves Austria and goes to the Italian club SSC Napoli. Althought the transfer fee is a secret, football experts think that Hoffer is the most expensive Austrian football player in all time. Italian medias write about 5 million Euro.

The 22-year-old Lower Austrian signed a contract for five years. Napoli coach Roberto Donadoni was very impressed about Hoffers performances in the past times. That’s why he wanted to have him in his team at all costs.

Erwin Hoffer: “I am very happy that the move to a foreign club worked. Napoli is a very famous destination.” But Hoffer also declared that he is sad leaving Rapid Vienna. “It was a matter close to my heart to play for this club”, he said. Hoffer promised that he wants to return to Rapid one day.

The 22-year-old has 11 caps and played for Rapid since June 2006. His previous teams were 1.SC Haidhof, FC Tribuswinkel, Badener AC, and Admira Wacker Mödling. In 2008 he celebrated the Austrian championship with Rapid. In 2007 he made the fourth place with Austria in the U-20 world cup. And one year before he was a member of the Austrian U-19 team, who made the third rank in the U-19 Euro.
