Eintracht sign Georg Teigl and Frederik Tingager
New-signings on the way to Spain
Shortly before departing for the winter training-camp in Spain, Eintracht Braunschweig have secured the services of Georg Teigl and Frederik Tingager. Both new-men will join their Löwen colleagues for the winter preparations ahead of the remainder of the 2017/2018 campaign.
Georg Teigl (09.02.1991, 1,83 m) has signed on loan from top-flight FC Augsburg until June 30th, 2019. In Augsburg, where he had been since summer 2016, Teigl made 18 league and one DFB-Cup appearance. The right full-back from Austria will wear the Löwen shirt with the number 18. The 26 year old was previously active for RB Leipzig (57 games, 3 goals) and RB Salzburg (87 games, 9 goals). In addition, the defender has been through several Austrian national youth teams (7 games/U19, 2 games/U20 and 8 games/U21).
Frederik Tingager (22.02.1993, 1,98 m) makes the move to the Blau-Gelben from Danish first division outfit Odense BK and has signed on in Braunschweig until June 30th, 2020. The 24 year old central defender, who previously made 49 league (3 goals) and three cup appearances for Odense, will wear the Löwen shirt with the number 3.
Statements on the new signings
„Georg Teigl is a player we’ve had an eye on for quite some time. That considered, we are very happy the move has now come about. He is very dynamic in his style of play and he can be used in versatile fashion, both defensively as well as offensively,” explained Eintracht’s Sporting Director Marc Arnold. „In Frederik Tingager, we have secured the services of a very interesting central-defender, who provides us with an additional alternative in this position, considering the long-term absence of Joseph Baffo.“
„I am delighted that my move to Eintracht has materialised. I am looking forward to the training-camp and getting to know my new team mates, as well as Braunschweig after the training-camp,“ explained Teigl, following his medical examination. „I want to help the team turn all those draws into wins and I hope to quickly find my footing.“
„When the enquiry came from Eintracht, I was immediately very enthusiastic,“ stated Tingager on his move to the ‚Löwenstadt’. „It’s a great club with amazing fans and a long history. The club’s ambitions coincide perfectly with mine, so I am very happy this move has come about.“
