For three years, Fabian Kunze now has the jersey of Arminia Bielefeld, rose sensationally to the Bundesliga with the East Westphalia in 2020 and celebrated the relegation in the upper house almost as surprisingly. The paths of the club and the born in Bielefeld soon separate: Kunze, a “son of the city”, changes free of charge to Hannover 96, signed there until 2025.
In the current season, the 23-year-old played 20 of the 46 first division games of his career so far, always proved to be a reliable back-up in the defensive midfield, was part of the starting eleven twelve times and lies with his current Bielefeld emergency average of 3.54 above the level Teams (3.72). With his robust duel behavior and header game, he is now to strengthen the possible future Bielefeld league competitors for the next three years.
Kunze had started his football career at the Bielefeld district association VfL Theesen and in 2014 together with his twin brother Lukas (now VfL Osnabrück) over the club’s smithy of FC Schalke 04 2015 to the neighboring regional league team SV Rödinghausen. From there we went back to the hometown in 2019, this time to Arminia. The right foot was involuntarily causing a sensation there when, hit in the air duel by the elbow of the Bayern defender Tanguy Nianzou, he had to be carried out of the square with a spine and shoulder bruise. After a two -week break, Kunze could be part of the line -up for the final of the relegation battle with the home game of the Bielefelds against Hertha BSC on Saturday.
