Oxford explains his move to Germany


ReeceReece Oxford has told a German TV interviewer he hopes to kick on with his career saying: “Hopefully, I can kick on now and get to know the boys when I get the training (ground) next week”

Asked why he moved to Borussia Monchengladbach and Germany he told TV cameras: “I have seen the squad and I have seen them play a few times, apparently they play a few young players so I was thinking this would be a great step for me, getting away from the family, getting away from everyone and hopefully I can just kick on and prove to everyone what I can be”

Chairman’s son Jack Sullivan has suggested on social media that guaranteed game is part of the loan deal so the youngster should see lots of action.

    Still makes no sense .

  • He needs to kick on 😉 I suppose he thinks being away from his family, friends and the club will make a man of him. He will need to prove himself in a foreign without the hype which surrounds him,

    Still a strange move. How this kid didn’t get in to our defense or even midfield is baffling.

  • Hammer64 says:

    Not playing well enough Jäger. His career has stalled, but this is a big chance for him. Still only 18 isn’t he, or 19? Early days & those Germans now their football & know how to bring youngsters through.

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    I think more British players should take a leaf out his book, as some one who went abroad to work from a young age I can say that in my case and plenty of friends who did similar things it changes you, you are forced to prove yourself as much to yourself as the people you work for and with so you work harder, as you adapt to different methods it gives you different experiences and those are all skills that help you throughout life, as the old adage goes “Better in life to regret what you have done than what you haven’t” Also in Reece’s case his family seem to get involved in a lot of his business or at least the reports would suggest that so it will be good for him having to make all the decisions without pressures from family or for that matter the british media.
