Bayern Munich loaned six players in the summer, one of whom has now caught the eye by scoring goals. The young man’s goal rate is particularly noteworthy.
MUNICH – It is not easy for the young professionals of their offspring at Bayern Munich * with so much competition. In the previous transfer window, the record champions gave up six youngsters on loan in order to boost player development. As players like Adrian Fein struggle with their new role, others are starting to go to their loan stations. Striker Joshua Zirkzee returned to the front with his goals.
Bayern Munich: On loan Joshua Zirkzee is accurate – the Dutchman emerges as the Joker side
The Dutchman, who moved from the youth team at Feyenoord Rotterdam to Munich in 2016, was unable to impress Julian Nagelsmann during the summer preparations. After the 20-year-old suffered a disappointment in pre-season and also remained pale on his six-month loan to Parma Calcio, officials gave him a second chance. So Zirkzee was loaned again, this time to RSC Anderlecht*.
With the Belgians coached by Vincent Kompany, the starting striker played several times from the start, and early on he managed to score a double*. However, his coach put him back on the bench after the 1-0 defeat to Genk at the end of August, to which Zirkzee immediately gave a mathematical answer. The next day, he scored in his team’s 7-2 win over Miquelin and set up another goal – even though he was only on the field for seven minutes.
Despite his success stories, he also only sat on the bench in the next two league matches and was substituted in the final minutes of the match. Last Sunday, September 26, Zerkzee was rewarded for his patience when he returned to the starting line-up against Ostend. Despite being 2-0 down and 43 minutes late, Anderlecht tied 2-2 at the North Sea coast, also because Zerkezi made it 2-1.
Bayern Munich: Zirkzee’s goal rate is close to Lewandowski’s – is the lender coming back?
In seven matches in the Belgian Pro League, the curly head scored his fourth goal of the weekend. This is remarkable given his relatively short playing time of 292 minutes, with the Netherlands international under-21 scoring goals every 73 minutes. At this rate, Zirkzee almost comes close to Robert Lewandowski, who, statistically speaking, celebrates a sense of accomplishment every 70 minutes in the Bundesliga.
But will Zirkzee have a chance of securing a place in Bayern’s professional squad if he continues to perform? The striker is still on loan to Anderlecht until the end of June, and his contract with Munich expires a year later. Robert Lewandowski and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s contracts also expire in June 2023, and owner Tillmann’s contract was recently extended until 2024. The place in Bayern* is already very tight, and it is likely that a decision will be made next summer on the future of the talented striker. (the wages) * tz.de is a display of IPPEN.MEDIA
