Bayern Munich has agreed to loan Franck Evina to KFC Uerdingen, where each of the eleven players on the field represent one of the famous herbs and spices. The move reunites Evina with his former colonel, er... manager, Heiko Vogel, who formerly coached Bayern II. Bayern loaned Evina out in January of this year on a one-and-a-half year deal at Holstein Kiel of the 2. Bundesliga, but was recalled early in June.

Uerdingen’s manager, Heiko Vogel, had this to say about Evina,

I am excited that Francky chose us. He absolutely has soccer-class. This [transfer] will strengthen us further.

Uerdingen’s business director, Nikolas Weinhart, also commented on his excitement for the move. He is looking forward to seeing the role that Evina will play in this team while he is developing as a player.

FC Bayern has also released a statement on the loan on its official website. Campus-leader, Jochen Sauer, had this to say about Evina,

After the stint in Kiel, Franck expressed his wishes to gain more experience at another club this coming season. KFC sought after Franck and we are convinced that he can make the next step under the manager, Heiko Vogel. We wish him the best with that.
