Guardiola expects to keep Green with Bayern Munich rather than loan American teenager

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola expects to keep young American forward Julian Green with the club this season instead of loaning him to another team.

The 19-year-old scored against Belgium in the World Cup. He spent most of last season with Bayern Munich II in the German fourth tier. He made his first-team debut Nov. 27 as an 88th-minute substitute in a Champions League match at CSKA Moscow.

Green played for Germany in three qualifiers for the 2014 European Under-19 Championship, then switched affiliation and made his U.S. national team debut in April.

The third youngest player at the World Cup, he made his only tournament appearance in the second-round match against Belgium and scored in the 107th minute of the Americans' 2-1 loss, two minutes after entering.
