Internet star Nader El-Jindaoui made his professional debut for second division club Hertha BSC and even became one of the heroes. The 27-year-old came on as a substitute in the 80th minute in the round of 16 of the DFB Cup against Hamburger SV on Wednesday – and safely converted his attempt in the 5-3 win on penalties.
Because goalkeeper Tjark Ernst saved Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer’s shot and all other Hertha professionals also scored, El-Jindaoui was able to celebrate with his colleagues about reaching the quarter-finals.
Last Sunday, the offensive player, who is followed by millions of people online, was in the league squad for the first time in the 5-1 win against SV Elversberg and sat on the bench for 90 minutes.
El-Jindaoui came to Hertha from Berliner AK in the summer of the previous year and was initially intended for the second team in the Northeast Regional League.
There he has scored two goals and three assists in 13 appearances so far this season. El-Jindaoui became known, among other things, for videos on the YouTube platform, where 1.75 million people have subscribed to his channel. He has two followers on Instagram and 2.6 million followers on TikTok.
