GC PLANS INCLUDE GRASSROOTS TALENT DIANI UNTIL 2022

Grasshopper Club Zurich is extending its contact with midfielder Djibril Diani early until 2022.

Djibril Diani joined Grasshopper Club Zurich's U21 team in July 2018 and is extending his contract early until 2022. The 20-year-old midfielder is a product of the youth system of RC Lens, where he captained the U19 team before his move to the city on the river Limmat. Diani made his full debut in the Grasshopper Club Zurich's senior side a good month ago when he lined up in the starting eleven against Berne's Young Boys on 3 November 2018. The Frenchman has played four more matches for blue and white since then.

"We're delighted to extend the contract with Djibril early until 2022. He quickly managed to join the first team. Djibril is strong in one-on-ones and convinces with his control of the ball," says GC Sports Director Mathias Walther on the contract extension with Djibril Diani.

Grasshopper Club Zurich is delighted to be again gradually developing a talented youngster in the first team in Djibril Diani.
