anybody know what "Lizensspieler" means? That's what he is now, apparently.
signing the contract
spieler means player
yes, and lizens means license, sex means six, gift poison, fart drive, and others. It's not the literal translation we're after but the context. I think it just means he got a first team contract.
whatever it is, it's good to see Preston clearly in HSV's future plans. We need all the forwards we can get in top flight football, hopefully he can earn himself some bit-minutes this year and some starts next.
it's basically a full professional contract.
thats how I took it also..
you may start seeing Zimmerman on the bench after the winter break for the first team
I'll get excited when I see him on the field with the first team. That would be an accomplishment.
baby steps... he is getting there...
article on UEFA site
Good to see! Congrats.
He's part of a special class of Hamburg's youth forwards. Forgot all the players but Macauley Chrisantus is now there. I'm happy to see this.
best young forwards in the Bundesliga... this is only good
Thats good for Zimmerman and the whole National team program, hope we get to see him in Beijing next year.
this is going to go down as the dumbest question I've asked since the 9th grade. Can Preston still play for the reserves? What does this actually MEAN other than a pay increase? Could he not play for the 1st team before signing the new contract?
I'm just a bit confused as to what this new deal actually entails.
Sex means sex, actually. Just in case you ever teach maths to first graders .
Zex. (well, Sechs, but it's close enough)
To the last question...No.
Yes. He is now, however, subject to limitations for Bundesliga players on Regionalliga sides. If he plays "too many" Bundesliga games he will be classified as a regular and not be allowed on the reserves until he looses this status.
Lizenzspieler is a legal term. It means he has signed a Bundesliga standard contract for professional players. Only a Bundesliga club can sign a Lizenzspieler, as the club, as well as the player, needs to be licensed (through a contract) by the German Football League (which organises the 1. and 2. Bundesliga). Not being a Lizenzspieler doesn't mean that one isn't a professional - a so called Vertragsspieler is a player that gets payed by his club, but his not bound to the regulations of the German Football League. In short: first team players of Bundesliga sides are Lizenzspieler, reserve side players of Bundesliga sides can but don't have to be Lizenzspieler, players of non-Bundesliga sides (3rd division and below, excluding reserves of Bundesliga clubs) can't be Lizenzspieler but are Vertragsspieler or true amateurs (unpayed players).
Even through other's have already answered, think about Feilhaber's situation last year. He was obviously a full professional but still spent the last months of the season with the reserves.
Thanks for the explanation Alex, rep for you sir!
No problem and thanks. If someone wants to read the complete regulations they can be found (in German) on the Bundesliga website www.bundesliga.de, btw.
good on him hope he keeps it up
I do not think Feilhaber was a licensed player. He might of been, but I think he was assigned to the reserve team and just had some first team caps due to injuries.
