Ivica Olic returned to his former club

Berlin, Jan 31 Wolfsburg striker Ivica Olic has rejoined Hamburg with immediate effect, the two German football clubs announced.

The Croatian veteran returned to his former club Hamburg where he had earlier played from 2007 until 2009. The 35-year-old striker agreed on a contract until 2016 with Hamburg, reports Xinhua.

"I am really looking forward to this new challenge and I hope that I can help," Olic said at the official presentation Friday.

The Croatian international was Wolfsburg for the last three years where he was a key player, scoring 28 goals in 78 appearances.

However, in his two years at Hamburg he scored overall 48 goals in 115 games to become a crowd-favourite.

"He is a great person and, as a player, an excellent addition to our strikers that we already have. His attitude and charisma are great," Hamburg's director of football Peter Knaebel said.
