John Brooks becomes priciest US footballer with €20m Wolfsburg move

  • Central defender leaves hometown club Hertha Berlin
  • Previous record was held by striker Jozy Altidore

John Brooks has become the most expensive US footballer in history after making the move from Hertha Berlin to Wolfsburg for a reported €20m ($22.5m). The previous record belonged to Jozy Altidore, who moved from AZ Alkmaar to Sunderland for €10m in 2013.

The defender was born in Berlin to an American father and German mother, and has played for Hertha for his entire career but reportedly requested a transfer. “It wasn’t an easy decision to leave my hometown, but after the talks with [sporting director] Olaf Rebbe and [coach] Andries Jonker I wanted to join Wolfsburg because both soon convinced me of their plans for VfL,” Brooks told Wolfsburg’s official website. “I want to contribute my share so that Wolfsburg can live up to their earlier success.”

RB Leipzig’s pre-match highlights reel inspires Champions League qualification

The Leipzig players ignored the protest banners, one proclaiming them to be the ‘gravediggers of football’, to celebrate a fine achievement in front of their fans

Even before it all kicked off in Berlin, RB Leipzig were already in the mood. In the dressing room at the Olympiastadion on Saturday afternoon, coach Ralph Hasenhüttl played his squad a video compilation of their season’s highlights, “with the Champions League anthem at the end” as outro music, as midfielder Diego Demme later told journalists.

It clearly had the desired effect. Leipzig simply overpowered European hopefuls Hertha Berlin in a performance that was so finely honed that it was almost a caricature of their best qualities. They pressed Pal Dardai’s side like demons, then sat off to conserve energy when they needed to – whisper it, but not unlike Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund at their best last season – and even went route one on occasions to give their befuddled opponents something else to deal with.
