Hartel leaves FC St. Pauli

Marcel Hartel is departing the Millerntor for an as yet unknown destination after three years at FC St. Pauli. “My time here was outstanding,” said the 28-year-old midfielder before thanking the club and the fans for their support. FC St. Pauli would also like to say thank you for the time spent together and wishes Hartel all the very best for the future.

Hartel joined the Boys in Brown from Arminia Bielefeld in August 2021. In 33 second division appearances the season just ended, he scored 17 goals and made another 13. He also ran out four times in the DFB Cup, scoring four and providing two assists.

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann emphasised the positive development Hartel had undergone over the last three years, saying: “He became a leader on the pitch and developed a huge goal threat through the role he played in our system. We would have liked to have had Marcel here for longer but we respect his decision to tread a different path. I’d like to thank Marcel for his fantastic effort on behalf of FC St. Pauli and wish him all the best for his personal and professional future!“

Head coach Fabian Hürzeler hailed the exemplary attitude of the attacking midfielder. “The mileage Cello put in on the pitch was impressive and important for our game. Our association was always one of trust and he had a fantastic season last term. We wish him all the best for the future! So long, Cello!“

Hartel had words of thanks for the club. ”It isn’t easy for me to take this step but sometimes you get special opportunities in life. I’d like to thank all the players, the coaches and backroom staff as well as Andreas Bornemann, the entire club and the fans for an outstanding time at the Millerntor. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved here. I’ll never forget it!“
