Once upon a time, Julian Green was the hottest United States soccer prospect. Now, he cannot even find steady club football. For the second time since January, Green has moved clubs.
After being sold to VfB Stuttgart from Bayern Munich in January, Green ended the season with Stuttgart, scoring one goal in their promotion-securing campaign. However, that must not have have been enough for his manager because, in two games this season, Green has not played, leaving his future with Stuttgart in doubt.
Even though his loan move to Greuther Fuerth is in a lower division of German football, hopefully Green can take this year to reestablish himself and, more importantly, regain some confidence. We all know what Green can do, and he has the talent to play at the highest level. But right now, Green needs to get back to the basics which got him to Bayern Munich and the USMNT in the first place.
EDIT: And now, Stuttgart has made the loan move official:
We all hope Green can find back his old form. Although this move might disappoint a lot, it might be what is best for Green. We wish him well and are rooting for him. We know that Julian Green versus Belgium quality is in there...maybe this loan move will find that quality and that player again!
