According to CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich might send Julian Green on loan to a Premier League club next season after his period at Hamburg has expired.
Green joined Hamburg on loan from Bayern at the beginning of the latest campaign, but he has struggled to get into the main team. One match into his loan, coach Mirko Slomka got fired and replaced by Joe Zinnbauer who never include the 19 years old player.
Green had failed to gain a victory more that once at the Bundesliga club. He also suffered a rib injury and he had not appeared on any match since the team 3-1 defeat at Augsburg in the last November.
The United States international player was requested to show his performance in Germany’s fourth tier for Hamburg’s alternative side after reportedly rejecting a move to 1860 Munich in the last January. However, he was criticised for just appearing in one performance.
It seemed even more complicated when Hamburg, again, fired their coach, Joe Zinnbauer, on Sunday. Zinnbauer was replaced by the sporting director Peter Knabel who wanted to pass on Green to 1860 Munich.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who leads the European Club Association (ECA) is quoted as saying by Goal that probably Green will come back to Bayern at the end of the season and they will sit together to talk and find out the best solution for him.
Rummenigge considered he will perhaps need one more year at a club, whether in Germany or England, to show his quality. King Kalle believes he has tallent and that good quality of player.
Rummenigge claimed Hamburg’s struggles this season was the major reason for Green’s failure to get into the main team.
He said that Hamburg was in a very difficult position. They fired their coach on Sunday and that was one more sign that things at Hamburg were not going well.
He added, maybe Green was suffering because of the situation and the atmosphere at the club and maybe he was not playing because it looked like he did not have a good relationship with the club’s old coach. There is a possiblitity that the situation will change now in a better way because he is a nice guy. The youngster whose international career began with Germany U16s and U17s is talented and he is a good dribbler.
For the rumor about Green’s loan to Premier Leage club, Craig Burley, the Scottish former professional footballer believed that first-team mathes are the key for Julian Green’s growth, while Shaka Hislop, a former football goalkeeper added that the pressure on the teenager continues to build.
