Bayern Munich forward, Thomas Muller has spoken on Marcel Sabitzer’s loan move to Manchester United,.
As reported in the Daily Mail, Muller admits he, and his teammates were surprised at the move.
“The team was surprised. It happened very quickly,’ he told the German media outlet, Kicker.
Muller went onto say he was pleased for his teammate, who will play at Old Trafford for the remainder of the campaign.
“I’m happy for Sabi that he’s moving to Manchester United, getting a chance to play there. Manchester is a huge name.’ he said.
However, Muller doesn’t expect Sabitzer to stay in Manchester beyond the current agreement, saying he feels there is unfinished business in Munich, for the midfielder.
“He’ll be back in the summer. The chapter isn’t over yet.” he said.
United moved quickly to secure the signing on Sabitzer on deadline day, after confirming Christian Eriksen will miss a large chunk of the remainder of the season due to injury.
Eriksen joins Donny van de Beek on the long term treatment table, with Scott McTominay also expected to miss the next ‘few weeks’.
Erik ten Hag was facing a hectic schedule with limited options in the middle of the park but the addition of Sabitzer has bolstered the numbers.
Sabitzer will bring energy and quality to United’s midfield and it may lead to a permanent move for the 28-year-old, despite the beliefs of Muller.
Ten Hag has confirmed the Austrian international will be in the squad for Saturday’s visit of Crystal Palace, in the Premier League.
