Cherundolo Helps Hannover Capture Zizzo
Yanks Abroad, July 27th, 2007 4PM

MOST READ


The U-20 World Cup in Canada turned out to be a good advertisement for several young Americans, including Sal Zizzo, who signed a three-year deal with Hannover 96 earlier this week. Zizzo joins countryman Steve Cherundolo at the German club.

Incidentally, the former U.S. international played a part in Zizzo's transfer, according to Yanks Abroad. "Cherundolo helped to realize this deal," said Hannover's Torsten Groenemeyer. "They grew up in San Diego and he called up Sal's parents." Americans Clint Mathis and Connor Casey also endured short stints at the German club.

"Sal is a player who will be part of our future, and were happy he signed with us," Hannover 96 head coach Dieter Heckning said Wednesday, adding, "He is very quick and talented." Heckning also hinted that more Americans could be on the way. "The U.S. transfer market is very interesting for us," he said. Zizzo, who played two seasons at UCLA, joined on a free transfer and will begin training shortly. He is Hannover's sixth signing of the offseason and will be given the No. 15 shirt.
