German World Cup winner Sami Khedira celebrated a landmark day with an assist in the German Bundesliga last week during the game between hosts VfB Stuttgart and capital club Hertha Berlin. Sami Khedira is back in the German Bundesliga after several years away from the competition. Since leaving Germany, Sami Khedira has played for the big European duo of Real Madrid and Juventus. Sami Khedira had to sign for Hertha Berlin earlier this month after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements by new Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo.

Sami Khedira was completely frozen out of the Juventus team by the club legend. He made his debut for new club Hertha Berlin as a second half substitute for fellow Argentine defensive midfielder Santiago Ascacibar at the start of the month. Sami Khedira entered the fray on 81 minutes with Hertha Berlin trailing 1-0 to champions Bayern Munich courtesy the goal from in-form winger Kingsley Coman. Coman got what proved to be the only goal of the game in the first quarter of the game. The introduction of Sami Khedira for the last five minutes was unable to rescue at least a point for Hertha Berlin.

Sami Khedira made his second appearance for Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga last weekend during the trip to VfB Stuttgart after he came on for the aforementioned Santiago Ascacibar on 58 minutes with Hertha Berlin trailing 1-0 thanks to the strike from SasaKalajdzic on the stroke of the half-time interval. Sami Khedira came on for what was his centurion in the German Bundesliga and he marked it with an assist for young striker Luca Netz in the final minutes of the game. It was a perfect way to celebrate 100 appearances in the German Bundesliga for Sami Khedira, who’s now at a veteran stage of his career.
