Werder Bremen has engaged Stefanos Kapino. The 24-year-old goalkeeper is moving to Bremen from Nottingham Forest in the English second division. From 2014 to 2015 he already gained experience in the Bundesliga: He played two games for Mainz 05. “After my time in Mainz it was clear to me that I would like to return to the German Bundesliga in the future. That’s why it’s a great opportunity for me to move to Werder Bremen after my last stations in Greece and England,” says the Greek now. “Stefanos fits perfectly into our goalkeeper team,” says Werder’s goalkeeper coach Christian Vander. “He exactly meets our requirements: He is experienced and has development potential. “It won’t be difficult for him to get used to it, as he already knows the Bundesliga.”
