David Kopacz moves to Würzburg from Stuttgart

David Kopacz has joined Würzburger Kickers on a permanent basis from VfB Stuttgart.

The attacking midfielder leaves Die Roten after two seasons and has signed a three-year contract with die Rothosen.

He had joined Stuttgart from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 but never played for the first team. He spent last season on loan with Górnik Zabrze, but only had one assist from 25 games to show for his time in Poland.

Although German-born, he has represented Poland up to under-21 level, playing two games at level in 2017, and he also played in last year’s U20 World Cup. He is still 21 so could still earn further recognition if his move to Würzburg proves a success.

“David’s commitment underscores our chosen path to work with young and hungry players,” says coach Michael Schiele, who adds that Kopacz “has a high level of game overview and intellgience.”

Kopacz says he is “very happy” with the move and that he had had a “good feeling from the start” which made the deicisin to make the move “very easy for me.”

He is the club’s second new signing of the summer, following the arrival of Tobias Kraulich from Nürnberg. The club also confirmed on Friday the appointment of Matthias Lust as an assistant coach. He moves from Bochum to replace Rainer Zietsch.
