Phillipp Mwene: Eindhoven signs Mainz and Kenyan left back


The 27-year-old player has reached an agreement that after successfully completing the medical examination, he will work at the Philips Stadium until 2024

The Eredivisie team Eindhoven announced the signing of Philip Mweene from the Bundesliga Mainz 05 club.

The Kenyan defender completed his transfer to Philips Stadium on Tuesday after a successful medical examination and signed a three-year contract.

The full-back has been playing for Mainz since working with Kaiserslautern in the summer of 2018. He has played for Christian Heidel’s team last season.

The defender is very happy to join the Rossoneri and looks forward to helping the club win more trophies.

“The first impression at PSV was very good. The stadium and training facilities are great,” Mwene told Club website.

“Eindhoven is a big club that wants to win awards and fight to the end in the championship. This is the new challenge I have been looking for.

“I will give everything on the court. I am looking forward to becoming a member of this club.”

Eindhoven football director John De Jong believes that the full-back will support his team and praised his comprehensiveness.

“Philip will strengthen the team and we are very happy to welcome him,” De Jong said.

“When you build a team, you always look for a mix of talent, experience, and certain specific qualities.

“Philip is a versatile defender. He can play on the left or right, but he can also play a role in the midfield.

“He played 31 times for Mainz last season. At the age of 27, he was at the peak of his career. He has proven that he can keep up with one of the top European leagues and compete.”

Mwene started his career at FK Austria Wien and played for the VfB Stuttgart youth team before being promoted to the first team in 2013.

Before leaving the club in 2016 to work with Kaiserslautern, he continued to make 73 appearances for Stuttgart.

He has represented Austria in U19 and U21 level competitions, but he is still eligible to represent Kenya if he wants to.
