When Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim announced that Chris Richards would be joining his old coach Sebastian Hoeneß in Sinsheim for a loan assignment, some fans did not know what to think.

The young American had not been used much in Munich, but was very impressive in his appearances under manager Hansi Flick. So...what gives?

As expected, the move is simply to get Richards more field time against a high-level of competition. According to Sport1, Bayern Munich still has big plans for Richards.
