FC Bayern paid three million euros to HSV for Fiete Arp. 15 months later he finally made his first professional game for Munich. But the striker hardly needs to make hope.
Dhe former HSV striker Fiete Arp will still have to recommend himself to the second team of Munich for missions after his competitive debut in the professional team of FC Bayern.
The 20-year-old, who moved from Hamburger SV to Munich for three million euros a year ago, was substituted on by coach Hans-Dieter Flick on Thursday evening in a 3-0 win in the DFB Cup match against the fifth division 1. FC Düren in the closing stages.
Flick reported on Friday from a conversation he had with Arp: “I think that it is simply important for Fiete that he has a home. And his home is currently the U23. “The Bayern amateurs are currently playing in the third division.
“It’s all up to him,” says Flick
“Like every other player, he knows that if he performs well in the U23, then the jump back into the professional squad is at least no worse. It is up to him what performance he brings. A goalscorer is measured by the fact that he scores goals, ”said Flick.
Arp, who has been thrown back again and again due to injuries, has so far made 15 third division appearances at Bayern, in which he scored two goals. According to BILD, he should have ruled out a transfer or loan to another club in the summer.
He is a very fine boy with a very professional attitude, says Flick: “It is to be hoped that he can make the development in the U23 that we all hope for. It’s up to him alone. “
