Bayern Munich’s roster is overflowing with talent at just about every position on the first-team — and that does not even count the youngsters currently playing for Bayern Munich II in 3.Liga or the prospects on Bayern Munich’s youth teams.
There are, however, several key players out on loan. Here is a recap of how each player is doing:
Michael Cuisance — Olympique Marseille — Ligue One (France)
The highest profile of Bayern Munich’s loanees, Cuisance is winning over many folks at Marseille, including manager Andre Villas-Boas. In six contests across all competitions for OM this season, Cuisance has not yet registered a goal or an assist, but has the tantalizing potential that excites club front office and fans alike. Essentially, this is a “so far, so good” loan scenario for Cuisance.
Adrian Fein — PSV Eindhoven — Eredivisie (Netherlands)
For the Dutch side, Fein has appeared in six games and played 161 minutes total. Yet to really establish himself, Fein needs to break through at PSV Eindhoven and get his career going. Fein did play the full 90 minutes in a 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag on November 1st, but his action has been sporadic for the most part.
Lars Lukas Mai — SV Darmstadt 98 — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)
Of all Bayern Munich’s loanees, Mai might be doing himself the biggest favor. Having appeared in eight games across all competitions, Mai has played the full 90 minutes in all seven 2.Liga games and all 120 minutes of Darmstadt’s 3-2 extra time win over 1.FC Magdeburg in the DFB-Pokal. Mai had an assist in that game as well.
Sarpreet Singh — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)
Singh has only one start and six overall appearance for Der Club as the 21-year-old is having trouble establishing himself. Without any goals or any assists, Singh has not made an impact as an attacking midfielder. Is the competition too strong or is Singh just a victim of not getting enough of an opportunity?
Christian Fruchtl — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2.Bundesliga (Germany)
Ouch...another Bayern Munich youngster at Der Club who is unable to breakthrough. Stuck behind starter Christian Mathenia, Fruchtl has zero appearances. Clearly, this is not going the way that both Fruchtl and Bayern Munich envisioned. With Ron-Thorben Hoffman making a strong case for himself in 3.Liga, Fruchtl’s status as Bayern Munich’s top young goalkeeper could be at risk.
Oliver Batista Meier — SC Heerenveen — Eredivisie (Netherlands)
Batista Meier has one goal and two assists in eight games across all competitions for SC Heerenveen and is earning consistent starting minutes for the Dutch club. Batista Meier, who has the flexibility to playing as an attacking midfielder, second striker, or winger has been picking up most of his minutes as an attacking midfielder per Transfermarkt.
Jakob Mayer — TSV 1860 Rosenheim — Regionalliga Bayern (Germany)
Mayer, a 19-year-old goalkeeper, has 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, is at least playing regularly with 11 appearances across all competitions. Without a goal or an assist, Kehl has tallied 889 minutes of field time and two yellow cards. Some reports think Kehl is showing promising signs during this loan stint, which ends next June.
Marvin Cuni - SG Sonnenhof Großaspach - Regionalliga Südwest (Germany)
Cuni, a 19-year-old right-wing, is the most productive of the Bayern Munich loanees. With 10 goals in 12 appearances, Cuni has shown really well in Regionalliga Südwest and Württembergpokal.
Jahn Herrmann - Hannover 96 II - Regionalliga Nord (Germany)
A 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Herrmann has one goal and two assists in nine appearance in Regionalliga Nord.
