MARQUES SIGNS FIRST PROFESSIONAL CONTRACT

Grasshopper Club Zurich have contracted another talented youth player. 18-year-old Zurich native Samuel Marques, who has been playing for GC's youth team since 2019, has signed his first professional contract with the record champion until the summer of 2025.

As an intelligent midfielder, Samuel Marques impressed during his education. In addition, he impressed with his determined and structured manner, which enables him to develop constantly. Samuel Marques has been called up for the national under-18 teams several times and is currently a member of the Swiss national under-18 squad. At Grasshopper Club Zurich, he is currently playing with the U21s in the First Division and is also being integrated into the 1st team to some extent. At the beginning of January, he was also able to travel with the professionals to the training camp in Spain, where he could gain valuable experience.

Erminio Piserchia, technical director of the youth department, is delighted with the signing: "Samuel is a great boy, both on and off the pitch! He approaches his football education with a lot of ambition and desire. We are happy about his development and of course that we were able to sign a professional contract with him. It would be great to see him playing in the highest Swiss division soon."

Grasshopper Club Zurich is looking forward to the further cooperation with Samuel and wishes him much success for the current season.
