Bayern Munich prospect Alex Timossi Andersson has been started his loan spell with Austrian 2.Liga side Klagenfurt with a bang. The youngster has been offered plenty of playing time and yesterday struck his first goal for his new side in a crazy win over Steyr. The coaches there like his speed and skill and in no time at all Andersson has earned himself a stable spot in their starting eleven.
While getting playing time has not been his problem, staying on the field seems to be becoming one. Andersson is averaging a yellow card a game, and yesterday he was sent off for a second yellow earning him his second league suspension for being sent off...in just five starts!
Andersson had to watch Klagenfurt’s game against FC Dornbirn from the sidelines due to his first double-yellow suspension and now will miss their watch against FAC Wien on Good Friday for his next suspension, assuming the league chooses not to extend it.
Perhaps Bayern Munich has decided they need an “enforcer” on their team to protect their skill players or perhaps he is Tie Domi’s secret love child.
And in case you were hoping he if you might get a chance to see him lead the line of Sweden’s U-19 side against Northern Ireland, I am afraid you are out of luck. Andersson will not be featured in the match because...you guessed it...indirect yellow card suspension.
