Many well-known faces are largely unnoticed by the German media abroad. Today at well-known faces-Spotlight: A former HSV gem, which drew the FC Chelsea a double pack, an ex-talent of Bayern on goals hunt in Latvia and a former professional of Gladbach and Hertha BSC, which blooms in his homeland.

As a hopeful talent, Vitaly Janelt once moved to the youth of Hamburg SV. The breakthrough today did not make the HSV 23-year-old, but he finally landed the VfL Bochum over RB Leipzig.

There, the defensive midfielder worked up to the professionals. Nevertheless, his commitment to the VfL ended in October 2020. For around 600,000 euros Janelt moved to the then English second division FC Brentford.

With the “bees” he succeeded in the last season of the climb in the Premier League. There, Brentford plays against the descent.

At the weekend Janelt and Co. but a sensational 4: 1 success against Champions League winner FC Chelsea and TeMmanager Thomas Tuchel. The former HSV jewel succeeded in a fulminant double pack.

Impressive double pack of ex-HSV talent

In the 50th minute Janelt first achieved the 1: 1 with a well placed completion of 16 meters and led the turning in a mistake.

After Christian Eriksen had set to 2: 1 for Brentford (54.), it was Janelt again, who achieved 3-1 (60.). Yoane Wissa made the final score shortly before the end (87.).

“You dream of these moments as a child, I still can not believe it,” said Janelt, who had only extended his contract in Brentford until 2026 until the day before. “I will never forget this week.”

Bayern’s offspring budgets before the breakthrough?

Also for Kevin Friesenbichler currently runs as lubricated. The Austrian attacker has so large clubs such as Bayern or Benfica in his VITA, but also kicked at Austria Vienna, Sturm Graz, the Wolfsberger AC and the VfL Osnabrück. The final breakthrough in the professional area remained there but fails.

Since summer 2021, Friesenbichler is under contract at FK RFS in Latvia’s capital Riga – and works there almost to its strong Torquot in Bavaria offspring, when he gives him 46 hits in 74 thesis for the U17, U19 and U23.

Nine times Friesenbichler already met competition in 22 games for his current club, which is currently ranked three in the Latvian league.

Also last weekend in the Away Place against FK Metta (1: 1), the former U21 international in Austria snapped and brought such a point to his team.

Ten gates for Ingolstadt, Gladbach and Hertha BSC

Slightly larger marks as a Friesenbichler left Mathew Leckie in German professional football. For the FC Ingolstadt, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Hertha BSC he scored ten goals in 139 Bundesliga players.

Vitaly Janelt doing the Drogba celebration vs Chelsea?

In Berlin, Leckie came to the siding last summer. In his home Australia at Melbourne City FC, the now 31-year-old dared a new beginning – obviously with success.

After a longer thumbning distance at the beginning of the season, leaks developed for the service provider of his new employer. Strong elf door participations in 16 games in the A-League are in his statistics. Most recently, the Australian national player contributed a hit at 6: 0-edge victory against Wellington Phoenix.

Currently leaks and Co. are four points ahead of the table top and may even dream of title. The way there, in Australia, after the regular season, however, still leads to a playoff round.
