Eljero Elia born 13 February 1987 is a Dutch footballer who plays as a winger for Turkish team İstanbul Başakşehir.
He turned professional at ADO Den Haag and then played for Twente before moving abroad to represent Hamburger SV, Juventus and Werder Bremen. In 2015, he came back to his home country to play for Feyenoord.
Elia scored on his debut for the Netherlands national team in September 2009 and was part of the Dutch squad which reached the final at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Eljero Elia Feyenoord
On 6 August 2015, Elia signed a two year-deal with Dutch side Feyenoord under the management of former Arsenal player Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Elia made his debut for the club on 30 August in a 3–1 loss to rivals PSV. In 2016, Elia, playing as a starting regular for the Rotterdam-based outfit, won the KNVB Cup, the club’s 12th title.
On 7 March 2016, Elia was brought in for questioning and arrested for his alleged involvement in a brawl in the Rotterdam city centre the week before. The following season with Feyenoord, Elia won the Eredivisie title of 2017.
Eljero Elia Juventus
On 31 August 2011, Juventus confirmed the signing of Elia from Hamburg on a four-year contract for a fee of €9 million. Elia made his Juventus debut on 25 September 2011 in a 1–1 draw against Catania. Elia, however, found it hard to make an impact in the black and white shirt and featured only four times in the whole season. Despite Juventus winning the Serie A title without losing a game, Elia announced he wanted to leave the club in order to revive his career elsewhere. The following month, on 11 June 2012, Elia handed in a transfer request which was granted by Juventus.
Eljero Elia Hamburger SV
On 5 July 2009, Elia joined Hamburger SV on a five-year contract that cost €8.5 million. On 8 August 2009, he made his debut as a substitute in the first match of the season against SC Freiburg. He scored his first league debut goal in a 4–2 win over VfL Wolfsburg on 23 August 2009. Five months later, he scored a brace and set up a goal in a 4–0 win over 1.
FC Nürnberg. Elia scored his first Europa League goal in a 4–2 win over Hapoel Tel Aviv on 1 October 2009. In a 1–1 draw at Mainz 05 on 28 November 2009, Elia suffered an ankle injury in the 15th minute. He missed the rest of the season following an ankle surgery, which manager Bruno Labbadia described as a “bitter blow”.
During his first season, in March 2010, Elia had a severe infection due to a poorly applied tattoo, which meant he felt uncomfortable in his shirt. As a result, Hamburg’s neighbours Werder Bremen have since banned their players from getting tattoos. In his debut season, Elia made 24 appearances and scored five goals. At the end of the season, Elia was linked with several clubs such as Juventus, but insisted he knew nothing about a move and wanted to stay at Hamburg for another season.
In his second season, Elia was rotated and played less frequently, which led him to consider leaving the club if he did not regain his starting position. In his third season, Elia made four appearances before moving to Juventus. While at Hamburg, Elia was fined by the club after he stated that the club’s team style didn’t suit him and claimed the club did not look after him while on the sideline.
Eljero Elia Werder Bremen
On 9 July 2012, Werder Bremen confirmed the signing of Elia from Juventus on a four-year contract for a fee of €5.5 million. After moving to Bremen, Elia said he hoped that he could resurrect his form and aimed to earn an international call-up.
He appeared in his first game for Bremen in a 2–1 loss in the opening game of the season against Borussia Dortmund. After making seven appearances with no goals, Elia admitted he found it difficult to adapt to the club’s playing style. Despite this, he made 21 appearances for the club that season. He and teammate Marko Arnautović were suspended after the pair were caught speeding in two separate incidents.
In the 2013–14 season, Elia started strongly when he scored two goals and his first for Bremen against 1. FC Nürnberg in a 3-3 draw on 29 September 2013. He then scored two goals in two matches against Mainz 05 on 24 November 2013, when Bremen lost 3–2, and in a 4–4 draw against 1899 Hoffenheim on 30 November 2013. The 2013–14 season was an improvement for Elia, as he made 33 appearances and scored four times. His improvement led the club to decide against selling him.
In the 2014–15 season, Elia made a good start in the opening game of the season, where he provided an assist for Franco Di Santo in a 2–2 draw against Hertha BSC. Elia’s season, however, was interrupted when he missed a game due to gastrointestinal virus before causing controversy on social media when he tweeted the words “Ready for War” ahead of the Nordderby. In December 2014, manager Viktor Skrypnyk decided to drop Elia from the first team matchday squad.
Upon returning to his parent club from Southampton in the summer of 2015, Werder exempted Elia from regular first-team training to find a new club and also considered placing him into the club’s reserve.
