Loan players: How are Piatkowski, Mantl & Co getting on?

Eight Red Bulls in action around Europe

A total of eight Red Bulls are spread out across Europe in Germany, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland and Austria at the moment in order to gain playing time on loan. We are taking a look in our loan player check at just how they are getting on. 

Nico Mantl | Viborg FF


Since starting his loan in January, the 24-year-old German has kept goal for Viborg FF for every possible minute. He has made five appearances in total in the Danish top flight, conceding eight goals. Our shot stopper will be aiming for clean sheets after the international break with Viborg in the relegation group after finishing the regular season in ninth place out of 12.

Kamil Piatkowski | FC Granada


On the subject of relegation battles - it was clear at the outset that Kamil would face a difficult task at Granada. The Andalusians have been locked in a struggle for survival all season with just 14 points taken from 28 La Liga matches so far. Their desire to tighten up at the back led to our Polish defensive specialist signing and becoming an important part of the side right away. He has made a total of five appearances now, starting all five fixtures. None of those have been won, unfortunately, with Kamil having an early bath after being shown a red card against UD Las Palmas..

Ignace Van der Brempt | SV Hamburg


Inni remains a permanent part of the Hamburg squad - just as he was before the winter break - even if he hasn't quite been able to continue the same superb form. The giants in the second tier have faced a turbulent time of it of late with their big aim of promotion looking uncertain. Steffen Baumgart replaced Tim Walter as coach in February, with our right-back still a regular starter - albeit he had to sit out their last home match due to muscular problems.

Kilian Ludewig | TSV 1860 Munich


Let's stay in Germany - Kilian has been playing his football in Munich since the summer but had a difficult start. The 24-year-old battled his way to a starting place as the autumn progressed and has been a key part of the side since the winter break. The Lions were roaring recently with an eight-match unbeaten run, although two defeats in a row have kept them in the middle of the third-tier pack.

Dijon Kameri | Grasshopper Club Zürich


Since starting his loan at the start of February, Dijon has featured in every match of the side second bottom of the Swiss Super League - initially as a substitute, but more recently as a regular starter. The midfield maestro had to decline a call-up to Austria U21 due to injury, unfortunately, and we hope he gets well soon!

Samson Tijani & Lukas Ibertsberger | WAC


Our pair of players at WAC can be very pleased. Samson Tijani has been a regular. starting in every single ADMIRAL Bundesliga game since the start of November. Lukas Ibertsberger had to be patient until the winter break, but has made up for lost time afterwards, playing all but one match (the recent draw at WSG Tirol) and three times appearing for the full 90 minutes.

Mamadou Sangare | TSV Hartberg


Lukas's experience has been reflected in that of Mamadou Sangare, who we faced in our championship group opener against Hartberg. After spending a little time getting up to speed in the autumn, the Malian midfield motor has been a regular pick and has played a big part in their getting a spot in the top six.
