FC Augsburg's plan works: Ricardo Pepi explodes in Groningen

FC Augsburg lent record transfer Ricardo Pepi to FC Groningen in the summer. While the US boy in the Fuggerstadt was still a stranger to European professional football, he is now turning things up a notch in the Dutch Eredivisie.

FCA paid 16.36 million euros in January to lure top American talent Ricardo Pepi to the Bundesliga. The 19-year-old was a stranger to Augsburg in his first half of the season: in 16 competitive games for his new club, Pepi missed any goal threat and contributed neither a goal nor an assist.

FCA therefore loaned the youngster to FC Groningen in the summer. And there it runs like clockwork for Pepi! The US boy has played for the Eredivisie club in six games so far and has already scored five goals and set up one goal. The last time a Groningen player managed such a series was over ten years ago. The Augsburg plan with Pepi is therefore a complete success. At FC Groningen, the US boy is currently gaining the self-confidence that he completely lacked in Augsburg. At the end of the season, Pepi returns to the Fugger town; If things continue to go well for the youngster, Augsburg can look forward to a much more mature player.
