During the recent 3-2 friendly defeat to Cercle Brugge, Hertha Berlin defender Christalino Atemona made an appearance for Kortrijk. As reported by VP, the 20 year-old German center-back has a contract with the Berlin club up to 2024, but has been given permission to trial at other clubs. The defender has only made one appearance for the clubs B team in the Regionalliga Nordost this season.
Atemona has been caped at U18, U19 and U20 level for the German national team, but has yet to make an appearance in the Hertha first team. He was transferred from the U19 into the second team back in the summer of 2021, going on to make 15 appearances in the Regionalliga and scoring once.
