Olić set for new adventure with Wolfsburg

VfL Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath is looking forward to working with a man he calls "a total professional" after the club announced the signing of Ivica Olić from FC Bayern München.

VfL Wolfsburg have confirmed the signing of FC Bayern München striker Ivica Olić on a two-year deal.

The 32-year-old will move to Bayern's Bundesliga rivals at the end of the season until June 2014. Olić, who joined the Bavarian club in 2009 from Hamburger SV, has been second choice at the UEFA Champions League finalists behind Mario Gomez after a succession of injuries. He missed most of last season and the first two months of this with knee and hip problems.

"Ivica is a total professional," said Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath of a player who has made 19 league appearances this term, 16 from the bench. "His determination and work rate are outstanding. He was always a key player in his [previous] teams. I am convinced he will add to the quality of our side as well."

Croatia forward Olić, whose former clubs also include Hertha BSC Berlin, GNK Dinamo Zagreb and PFC CSKA Mosvka, is expected to link up with a Wolfsburg side currently tenth in the Bundesliga after UEFA EURO 2012.
