FC Bayern: Arp leaves FCB – Salihamidzic gives reasons

Striker Jann-Fiete Arp is making a permanent move from FC Bayern to second division side Holstein Kiel. The clubs announced this on Friday. The 22-year-old played for Holstein on loan last season and is now on a two-year contract.

“I felt incredibly comfortable here, so it wasn’t a difficult decision for me to continue down the KSV path,” said Arp. He is looking forward to a “really great season”.

KSV sports manager Uwe Stöver was also satisfied: “Fiete Arp settled in very well with us last season. He faced the challenges in the team and the league professionally and indicated his potential,” said the 55-year-old.

Arp had moved from Hamburger SV to Munich in 2019 as a promising talent, but played no role in the record champions in the first team. “Fiete Arp came to FC Bayern as one of the greatest German offensive talents. He made his first Bundesliga appearances for Hamburger SV and played a very good U17 World Cup for Germany. Unfortunately, sometimes expectations are not fulfilled,” said Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.

He continued: “We discussed our options in detail with Fiete and in the end we were both convinced that it would be best if Fiete took a new path. We wish him all the best and every success in his new role.” After being loaned to Kiel last summer, he played 23 second division games there, scoring two goals.
