Chris Richards left Bayern Munich, to continue his career on loan with the Hoffenheim team, which a few days ago announced the American defender as his brand new reinforcement, prior to the closing of records in the European market and this Wednesday, the Bavarian team’s own coach, Hansi Flick, assured that he would have liked to retain the center-back in his team.

Bayern confirmed the transfers of Joshua Zirkzee and Chris Richards to Parma and Hoffenheim, respectively, and during the conference prior to their duel against Hertha Berlin, andThe German coach commented that he would have liked to retain them, but expressed his desire for them to continue their development, while comparing them with players like Philipp Lahm and David Alaba.

With Zirkzee and Richards two players have left that I would have liked to have on the team. But it is good for your development. There are examples like Philipp Lahm and David Alaba, who became formative figures for Bayern after their loan, ”Flick said on Wednesday.

Lahm was loaned to Stuttgart for a couple of seasons, before becoming a true legend of the Bavarian side, while Richards will look to follow in the footsteps of David Alaba, as the Austrian defender was also loaned to Hoffenheim in 2011.

The reigning Champions League champions confirmed the loan of the 20-year-old American defender, with no option to buy, after making his debut last season and add a total of 8 appearances within the Bavarian team, with which he even gave an assist in this campaign.

The FC Dallas academy-trained North American defender could make his Hoffenheim debut this week, when the team led by Sebastian Hoeneß faces Frankfurt next Sunday, after having lost precisely to Bayern Munich. So far, Hoffenheim ranks 12th in the Bundesliga with 22 points.
