Omar Gonzalez is loaned to Nurnberg and other tidbits
   January 5, 2012 (1:01 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

While everyone has been hinting at a possible loan move south of the border (Club America?), Omar Gonzalez is actually headed to Germany until the middle of February on a loan deal with Nurnberg.  Gonzalez will get the chance to play with Timothy Chandler and could make his debut on January 21 against Hertha Berlin once the German Bundesliga returns from its winter break.

Staying in Germany, Jermaine Jones has been banned for eight weeks by the German Football Federation after his foot stomp of Marco Reus’ injured foot in the German Cup.

Jonathan Borrajo, who played with Norwegian side Ham-Kam this past season, is headed back to the US to play for the New York Red Bulls.

And according to various reports, French club Sochaux are making a run at Maurice Edu.

    I like the idea of Omar going to Nurnberg…Work on chemistry with Chandler.

    Nice move for Gonzo. Here’s hoping he makes the most of it.

    And of course after I post this, I read that Gonzalez had a collision with Chandler in the first practice and injured his knee.

    Doesn’t look to be serious, according to people who can read German better than me (or Google translate), but it knocked him out of practice.

    I think it would be funny to plug it into Google translator.

    Nevermind, I did it:

    BELEK – remained after the turbulence of the first sports FC Nuremberg, at least on the flight to Antalya, where he took up his winter training camp on Thursday spared from weather-related adversity. Punctually at 13.30 clock time, the club reached the Turkish Riviera and entourage checked after a 40-minute transfer from Antalya to Belek in the five-star Hotel Rixos-XXL, in which a passage from the dining room because of the rich dimensions temple of luxury almost equivalent to a first moving unit.

    The first working day at the club was ready for Omar Gonzalez, a rollercoaster of emotions: Hardly had Martin Bader Sports Board welcomed the new arrival in Belek, the defender was already injured.”
