Renato Sanches frustrated at Bayern opportunities6 June 2019
Bayern Munich youngster Renato Sanches has expressed his concerns over his current playing situation, not happy with the lack of minutes offered to him.
Bayern Munich stormed to another league and cup double this season despite a struggling start. Niko Kovac spent much of the season under pressure but managed to turn things around for the Bavarian giants.
Much of this success was down to the old guard, with Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery proving pivotal in both competitions. But Bayern need to begin to look to the future with their aging squad.
Renato Sanches was transferred from Benfica to Bayern Munich in 2016 at just 18 years old. He struggled for game time and was sent on loan to Swansea City where the pace and pressure of the Premier League and a relegation battle seemed too much for the young Portugese international.
His time in Germany has constantly produced rumour after rumour of a transfer away as he looks to kickstart a career that had so much promise in his formative years.
Speaking to Bild, it seems Sanches is finally ready to give in on his time at Bayern and challenge himself elsewhere due to his frustration at a lack of opportunities he feels he deserves;
“I don’t want to go on loan again. If I leave, it will be leave completely. I want to play more. I don’t know if it makes sense to try again in Munich. I played too little, I’m disappointed.
“All the young players like Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman play, it’s only me that doesn’t. I’ve shown in training that I’m a good player. I think I got the fewest chances of the young players.”
