Louis Schaub does the same as his father. Louis’ father Fred Schaub played for two and a half years in the ’96 shirt in the 1980s and was promoted to the Bundesliga with the club in 1985. His son has now signed a three-year contract with the second division club until 2025. The ÖFB national player’s contract with 1. FC Köln is expiring, so the ex-Rapidler is moving to Hannover 96 on a free transfer. Schaub scored one goal in 28 appearances for Cologne last season and also provided three assists. Schaub was introduced with a video on social media.
Louis Schaub’s goal should also be promotion to the Bundesliga. “It fills me with pride that I can now play for the same club my father played for,” said Schaub, who made 28 appearances for Cologne in the Bundesliga season that just ended and scored one goal. “Louis has already shown at a high level that he can enrich a game with his actions and have a decisive influence,” said Hanover sporting director Marcus Mann, pleased about the reinforcement by the ex-Rapidler.
