In the spirit of developing young players, VfB Stuttgart has loaned out various young professionals. In particular, the loans from Mateo Klimowicz and Ömer Beyaz are certainly not going as hoped. Both could return early.
When young professionals between the ages of 18 and 22 are loaned out, it is always about match practice and development for them. Exactly this practice was also followed in Stuttgart in the summer. At the moment, eight players who fit this pattern have switched to other clubs at times.
But with two of the loans, the goal of match practice has not been achieved at all. Therefore, the previous seasons of Ömer Beyaz and Mateo Klimowicz at VfB are in the big negative focus.
If you add up the playing times in the 2nd Bundesliga that Beyaz collected for Magdeburg and Klimowicz for Bielefeld, you get a weak 166 minutes. That would be very disappointing based on just one player - based on two, Sven Mislintat's alarm bells are ringing.
"I think that both have the qualities to play in Bielefeld and Magdeburg," the sports director clarified (via image) to add the slightly smug sentence: "They must have good teams there if both are not on the stand."
Smug because the first division relegated Bielefeld is stuck in 16th place in the table. Promoted Magdeburg is tied on points and due to the worse goal difference in 17th place.
According to information from the image, the Beyaz loan should be canceled early this week as a result. It is said that Klimowicz has "similar thoughts". The two second division clubs should not oppose this plan, as they have no interest in keeping the two Stuttgarters any longer. They simply play no role among the respective coaches.
Should this step be taken, the question initially remains whether they will be awarded again for the second half of the season. VfB will certainly do a squad analysis given how the season has gone so far. One thing is clear: the two youngsters will certainly not come back from a position of strength.
