Hojbjerg returns to Bayern after successful Augsburg loan

The midfielder has spent six months away from the Allianz Arena but is now set to rejoin Pep Guardiola’s side

Bayern Munich midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has returned to the club after a successful loan spell with Augsburg.

The 19-year-old joined Augsburg in January on a six-month deal and impressed during his time at the SGL Arena, scoring twice and notching three assists in 16 Bundesliga appearances.

Augsburg were hopeful of extending Hojbjerg’s stay by one additional season after he successfully helped the club reach the Europa League, but the Danish midfielder will now head back to Bayern instead in an effort to nail down a place in Pep Guardiola’s plans before next season.

“I’m pleased to come back,” he said to Kicker following the news.

Hojbjerg, a Denmark youth international at every age level who has won five caps for the senior side, joined Bayern from Brondby in 2012.

He set up Raul Bobadilla’s goal at the Allianz Arena in May as Augsburg recorded a priceless 1-0 win against the newly-crowned champions.
