23-year-old US national team player Amber Brooks will join FC Bayern Munich on loan until the end of 2014. The midfielder joins from National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) side Portland Thorns. This will be the second spell at FC Bayern for Brooks after playing there in 2013 where she scored 9 goals in 19 matches.
Coach Thomas Wörle is very much looking forward to Brooks’ return to the club, “I’m delighted about Ambers’ second spell with FC Bayern Munich. Amber is a strong and dominant midfielder and is already familiar the team, the environment and the club. She is only going to strengthen and stabilize our team in the next six months as we continue to deal with some long-term injuries.”
Brooks also expressed her excitement in about reuniting with the team, “I am happy that I am returning to play for FC Bayern Munich as I enjoyed my experience last time. I am excited to be a part of the club again and look forward to a competitive season with the team and further developing my game.“
