Betim Fazliji leaves FC St. Pauli

FC St. Pauli and FC St. Gallen have reached agreement on a transfer of Betim Fazliji to the Swiss Super League outfit. The 24-year-old thus returns to his previous club after a one-year spell at the Millerntor. The two clubs have agreed not to disclose any details of the transfer.

Fazliji made a total of 19 second-division appearances for FC St. Pauli last season plus another two in the DFB Cup. At FC St. Gallen, he made the transition from the youth ranks to the professional setup in 2019 and made a total of 97 competitive appearances (five goals, one assist) over the following three years.

Reaction to the move:

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "Betim's season with us did not go as any of us hoped. Nevertheless, we’ve always been convinced of his potential and so would have been happy if he had seen his future at FC St. Pauli. When Betim approached us with the request to return to St. Gallen, we didn't want to stand in his way, especially as the general conditions for the transfer are OK. We wish Betim every success on his old and new stomping ground."

Betim Fazliji: "I spent a very intensive year at FC St. Pauli. Even though things didn't go entirely as I would have hoped, I learned a lot here and took a big step in my football development. I'm very grateful to the club, the fans and, of course, my teammates and the coaching team for the shared experience. I'll have fond memories of my time in Hamburg and wish the club all the best."
