The German and American pages of Transfermarkt are currently abuzz about one of the FC Dallas players on loan in Germany. Of course, one of the six talents from the US who came to Bavaria for a recent training program would like to commit to the Bundesrepublik.
Chris Richards has already created a cooperative relationship between MLS-side FC Dallas and Germany’s record champions. By inviting six players from the American club to practice on the Bayern campus in January, the FCB decided to extend their relationship.
There was one short-term loan produced by the three-week exchange program. For the rest of the season, seventeen-year-old defender Justin Che has joined the Bayern U19 squad on a six-month loan contract. Even as all German football levels below level three remain suspended, the youngster has not yet had the chance to play an actual match.
For FC Bayern II, he is qualified to play. The youngster demonstrated considerable excitement in an interview with SoccerNow to make Germany his permanent home, and probably even to play for the Nationalmannschaft. Che has already played on the U16 side of the USSF, but is still qualified to play through his mother for the Bundesrepublik, a Belarusian who was raised in Germany.
“I think if I establish myself here in Germany with Bayern it could open the door to the German national team,” Che told the publication, “They will most likely keep an eye on me. I haven’t really committed to a national team yet.” The teenager speaks fluent German and is said to have secured a loan to his target country to be ecstatic.
