Zhi-Gin Lam is a former Bundesliga talent who has played in one of Europe’s top leagues – and was praised by his coach at Hamburger SV, Rodolfo Cardoso, as a courageous player, unafraid to claim the ball, and a very intelligent player who can play anywhere.
Born in Hamburg, Germany to a father from Hong Kongese and a German mother, Lam began his professional career coming through the youth ranks of HSV, first appearing for the HSV II team, before breaking into the first team setup in 2011.
He scored his first goal for HSV in a 6-2 away defeat to Borussia Dortmund in September 2013.
Following his time in Hamburg, he moved Greuther Furth and spent two seasons there before signing for Hong Kong top-flight club Kitchee in July 2016.
Lam joined current Hong Kong club R&F in August 2018.
