Adjust font size:

Carsten Jancker, former German national team forward and Bayern Munich striker will join Shanghai football club Shenhua, reported top Chinese Internet portal Wednesday.

Jancker was a starting striker for Bayern Munich during the German League games, and helped the team to win Germany League title in 1999, 2000 and 2001.

Jancker will soon be competing with Shenhua in both the China Super League and AFC Champions League.

Despite the fact Jancker was not listed in the roster of Germany national team, the 32-year-old, 193 cm footballer has enjoyed a lengthy career playing at the international level.

He then was a top pick for Shanghai this season out of several potential foreign candidates.

Jancker had his first trial training session with Shenhua in Shanghai on May 17.

"I'm willing to join Shenhua," Jancker told local media after the session. "I'm confident of my upcoming performances with them."

Jancker, wearing No.9 polo shirt with Germany Kaiserslautern, lost several good chances to earn points while competing in German League games, as he was put in an important position in the team.

The decline of Kaiserslautern also made Jancker depressed, he thus received the invitation of Shanghai Shenhua without hesitation.
