Bavarian Loan Works: Mixed results for Bayern Munich players on loan


Bayern Munich’s roster is packed with talent in nearly every first-team position – and that’s not even counting the youngsters currently playing for Bayern Munich II in the 3.Liga or prospects for Bayern Munich’s youth teams.

There are, however, several key players on loan. Here’s a recap of how each player is doing:

Michael Cuisance — Olympique de Marseille — Ligue 1 (France)

The highest profile player on loan from Bayern Munich, Cuisance appeals to many at Marseille, including manager Andre Villas-Boas. In six games in all competitions for OM this season, Cuisance has yet to score a goal or an assist, but has the tantalizing potential that excites the club’s front office and supporters alike. It’s basically a “so far so good” loan scenario for Cuisance.

Adrian Fein — PSV Eindhoven — Eredivisie (Netherlands)

On the Dutch side, Fein has played six games and played 161 minutes in total. However, to really win, Fein must break through at PSV Eindhoven and launch his career. Fein played the full 90 minutes in a 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag on November 1, but his action was mostly sporadic.

Lars Lukas Mai — SV Darmstadt 98 — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)

Of all the Bayern Munich loanees, Mai could be doing herself the greatest favor. Having played eight games in all competitions, Mai played all 90 minutes in all seven 2.Liga games and all 120 minutes in Darmstadt’s 3-2 extra-time win over 1.FC Magdeburg in the DFB-Pokal. Mai also got an assist in this game.

Sarpreet Singh — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)

Singh has just one start and six overall appearances for The club as the 21-year-old is struggling to establish himself. Without goals or assists, Singh failed to make an impact as an attacking midfielder. Is the competition too much or is Singh just a victim of not having enough opportunities?

Christian Fruchtl — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)

Ouch…another Bayern Munich youngster to The club who is unable to pierce. Stuck behind starter Christian Mathenia, Fruchtl has no appearances. Obviously, it’s not going as planned by Fruchtl and Bayern Munich. With Ron-Thorben Hoffman making his case in 3.Liga, Fruchtl’s status as Bayern Munich’s best young goalkeeper could be under threat.

Oliver Batista Meier — SC Heerenveen — Eredivisie (Netherlands)

Batista Meier has registered one goal and two assists in eight games in all competitions for SC Heerenveen and is regularly earning starting minutes for the Dutch club. Batista Meier, who has the option to play as an attacking midfielder, second striker or winger, has racked up most of his minutes as an attacking midfielder per Transfermarkt.

Jakob Mayer — TSV 1860 Rosenheim — Regionalliga Bayern (Germany)

Mayer, a 19-year-old keeper, made two appearances for 1860 Rosenheim and conceded nine goals. Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

Jonas Kehl – SSV Ulm 1846 Fußball – Regionalliga Südwest (Germany)

Kehl, a left-back, plays at least regularly with 11 appearances in all competitions. Without a goal or assist, Kehl totaled 889 minutes of play and two yellow cards. Some reports believe Kehl is showing promising signs during this loan spell, which ends next June.

Marvin Cuni – SG Sonnenhof Großaspach – Regionalliga Südwest (Germany)

Cuni, a 19-year-old right-winger, is Bayern Munich’s most productive loanee. With 10 goals in 12 appearances, Cuni has done very well in Regionalliga Südwest and Württembergpokal.

Jahn Hermann – Hanover 96 II – Regionalliga North (Germany)

A 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Herrmann has registered one goal and two assists in nine Regionalliga North appearances.
