American Julian Green Will Remain With Bayern


Julian Green American teenager Julian Green will remain with Bayern the German champions for the 2014-15 Bundesliga season instead of being loaned out in search of more playing time. Green made just one appearance for Bayern’s senior team last year. 

Green was the youngest US player to ever score in a World Cup and marked his first tally at the international level in an overtime loss to Belgium.

He was named to the club’s squad for friendlies in Harrison, New Jersey ,July 31 vs. Guadalajara and Portland, Oregon ,Aug. 6 against the MLS All-Stars, as part of MLS All-Star weekend. 

“It’s never easy to be with a big club in the first [team] squad, but he deserves to try to keep going here and play with us,” said Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola.  “I think today he’s going to stay — we’re going see in the preseason — but I know him. He’s always training well, he’s a good guy and my first idea is that he’s going to stay for the rest of the season.”

Green has been suffering from a knee injury  will not be on the field for the next two or three days, but the team is hopeful he will return and play as much as possible. 

“I spoke many times throughout the year with the U.S. national coach, my dear friend Jurgen Klinsmann, and we spoke about his skills. He played a little bit in the World Cup but when he played he showed his level, scoring a beautiful, beautiful goal. “We are so happy that he is with us.”
