In 2021, the boy from Rüti ZH moved to Grasshopper Club Zurich. He quickly demonstrated his speed and assertiveness, as well as his acrobatic style of play. In addition, Tugra is an integral part of the Swiss national under-16 team, where he is currently playing for the under-16 team. At Grasshopper Club Zurich, he has already been integrated into the U18s in order to challenge his potential even further. He has accepted this challenge with great will and enthusiasm and shows impressive progress every day. The youth academy is accompanying him very closely on his development path and is confident that Tugra is moving in the right direction of professional football.
We are very pleased that we can embark on a long-term path with Tugra. He is a very talented player and we thank the family for the great trust they have placed in us. It is definitely our goal and great concern that we provide the best possible training opportunity for their son," says Erminio Piserchia, technical director of the youth department.
Grasshopper Club Zurich is looking forward to continuing its cooperation with Tugra and wishes him every success for the current season.
