Hardly any match practice under Hansi Flick: Will Marc Roca leave FC Bayern in the summer after just one season? Christian Wein, the Spanish midfielder’s advisor, takes a stand on his client’s situation.
“Marc is neither playing with the idea of leaving FC Bayern, nor has FC Bayern informed us that they want to give Marc up after the season,” Wein said in an interview with SPOX and Goal. “Leaving in summer is not up for discussion at all.”
Previously, the image raised the question of whether Roca was sidelined with Bayern coach Hansi Flick and whether he therefore wanted to change on loan in the next transfer period. The reason for this: 0 minutes played last week when Munich’s Lazio Rome and VfB Stuttgart were guests in the Allianz Arena.
“Of course, every player wants a lot of match practice,” says Wein. “But you have to consider that Marc only came to Munich in October. It would be crazy and unprofessional to discuss a loan right now. Marc has a long-term contract with FC Bayern (until 2025; d. ed.) and apart from that, he’s not a guy who throws in the towel after just five months. He is someone who is fighting for his place. “
Roca consultant: “No reason to leave FC Bayern”
At this point Wein refers to the competition in the defensive midfield: “Kimmich, Goretzka, Tolisso, Javi Martinez, Alaba – these are not too bad footballers. Marc knew from the start what he was getting into.”
So far, the newcomer from Barcelona has played 481 minutes for the German record champions. The last time he was in the starting line-up was the 2-1 away defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt on February 20, but was already substituted at the break. After that, it was only enough for a short eleven-minute assignment in Bremen. A signal from Flick without planning the 24-year-old left foot?
“I haven’t spoken to Hansi recently. I don’t know what exactly he thinks about Marc at the moment. But we were told from the start that he should slowly be introduced to the team, calmly to the training and game rhythm in Germany should get used to, “reports Roca consultant Wein and once again makes it clear:” There is no reason for Marc to leave the club. He feels very much at home in the team and in the city. ”
