Werder Bremen’s head of scouting and professional football has dismissed concerns over a lack of playing time for Tahith Chong at the German club.
Dutch winger Chong left Manchester United on loan in the summer transfer window as he went in search of senior men’s football at a pivotal stage in his career.
The 20-year-old made an immediate impact with his performances in pre-season but has found himself out of favour since the start of the Bundesliga campaign.
Chong has played just 81 minutes of competitive football across three appearances for Bremen so far this season leading to concerns over his decision to join the club.
However, Bremen’s head of football Clemens Fritz insists the United youngster will get appropriate playing time throughout the Bundesliga season.
“The exchange with Manchester is going very well,” Fritz told Deichstube.
“Tahith is close to the team. Neither we nor Manchester United are concerned that he won’t get enough playing time.
“There will be enough time for it. You can already see developmental steps in him. Steps that should lead to longer Bundesliga appearances as soon as possible.”
