Yann Bisseck now plays for FC Internazionale Milano, according to the club’s official site. Yesterday the Nerazzurri reached an agreement with Aarhus to pay the 7 million clause over three years, plus a 500 thousand euro bonus that will be added along with 5% on a future resale, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Today, after the usual medical tests, the young defender signed his contract making his addition to the squad official.
Born in Cologne on November 29th, 2000 to Cameroonian parents, Yann-Aurel Bisseck as a child dreamed of becoming a doctor. Football was just fun for him, but Bisseck began to really believe in his abilities with the Cologne Under-17 team, thanks to the trust of coach Markus Daun. It was here that Yann took off, which led him to make his first-team debut in 2017 at only 16 years and 11 months against Hertha Berlin, becoming the youngest German rookie in Bundesliga history.
The following season Bisseck moved on a loan to Holstein Kiel, in the second division. However an injury kept him off the pitch for much of the season. Yann had to fight for his career and he did so first in the Netherlands, at Roda Kerkrade, then at Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal for the 2020-21 season.
The turning point came for him in the summer of 2021, when Cologne sold him to Aarhus Gymnastikforening in the Danish Superliga. Bisseck exploded playing 68 matches in two years and becoming a pillar of the team. His performances also earned him a call-up to the German Under-21 squad of which he soon became captain.
Personality, physique and great skill with both feet are some of his best qualities. David Nielsen, his first coach at Aarhus, recently stated that Bisseck is the prototype of the modern defender – a real ‘walking mountain’.
