I have been doing a lot of reading on the club and football in India, and the project under Robbie excites me. I cannot wait to get going, for us and the millions of fans we have across the world.”

A youth product of Hamburger SV, Steinmann made his Bundesliga debut in 2014 against giants Bayern Munich where he had come as a substitute.
