Serdar Tasci joining Bayern Munich on loan was a bad decision

He'd like a do-over.

It hasn't been the best of times for Serdar Tasci since joining Bayern Munich on loan at the end of January. In fact, things are so bad for the former Germany international, that he regrets agreeing to the loan back to his homeland from Spartak Moscow.

"I would not have joined Bayern had I known that I would get any playing time," Tasci told Bild.

When Bayern lost Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez within days of each other back at the end of the transfer window, the Bavarians moved immediately to secure the services of Tasci to fill the void of having zero healthy centerbacks on the roster. However, the move appears to have not been one approved by Pep Guardiola.

Tasci has only seen the field for 53 minutes in what was a disappointing start against Darmstadt. Guardiola has preferred the non-centerback centerback pairing of David Alaba and Joshua Kimmich over Tasci who is an actual centerback.

Martinez has already returned from his injury, and both Boateng and Medhi Benatia are not far behind. It's unlikely that Tasci will see the field again this season. Due to his €2.5 million loan fee, Tasci will have cost Bayern a staggering €47,169.81 per minute on the field.

It's safe to say that Bayern will not be exercising their right to purchase Tasci's contract at the conclusion of the loan.
