AA Ghent have patched up their battered vanguard with the addition of Norwegian Jens Petter Hauge. The 22-year-old winger says Eintracht has come on loan from Frankfurt and Tariq has to deal with his Tissoudari long injury.
Accumulating injuries forced AA Gent’s scouting cell to work overtime to strengthen their core. Injuries to Laurent Despoitre and Tariq Tisudari showed anemia, especially in the attacking compartment.
So AA Gent went to Eintracht Frankfurt for Jens Petter Hauge. The Norwegian winger scored his 50th minute in last season’s Europa League final but is yet to be named for this season’s European Super Cup and Bayern’s opener against Munich.
To give the 22-year-old talent a chance to play, Frankfurt Hauge decided to rent out the Geramko Arena for a season. AA Gent was unable to enforce purchase options.
Able to play both on the flank and as an attacking midfielder, Hauge broke through for Norway’s Bod/Glimt in 2020. He earned a move to AC Milan, but could not claim a fundamental place there.Eintracht Frankfurt provided him with a life preserver.
