Moving To Bundesliga Does Not Guarantee Success But To Experience Football – Lookman



Everton winger Ademola Lookman Olajade has urged English players to experience football outside but cautioned a move to the Bundesliga does not guarantee success.

Lookman, who scored five goals in 11 Bundesliga games amid his loan spell with RB Leipzig last season, while Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson have also shone in the German top flight, at Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.

While Chelsea sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich as of late and could become the most recent English youngster heading to Germany looking for first-team football.

Yet, Lookman says the main obligation is on players to substantiate themselves on the off chance that they are allowed an opportunity to play abroad.

Everybody’s situation is unique, every one of our circumstances is extraordinarily different,” Lookman said.

“So I think the experience in light of the fact that wherever you go you can say you are going to play, but you need to prove it. It is for experience, adapting to new football, learning a new style, just being around it.

The 21-year old has made just a single Premier League start since coming back to Goodison Park (Everton) scored in a 2-1 FA Cup triumph over Lincoln City on Saturday. In spite of failing to make his way into Marco Silva’s first-team plans up until this point, Lookman insists he is contented with the Toffees and is determined to prove his worth.

It was just one of those cases,” Lookman added.

I wasn’t unhappy. I had no choice but to work hard. It’s my job. I love to do it wherever I am. I have to work hard. I’m happy here.”

Football is football. I love playing football and I am glad to do that every single day. It is not a case of me being sad. I am just happy to play football.

People said at the time I was crazy to go to Germany but I saw it as another experience and another learning curve for me. I’m glad I did go. I learnt about being more of a goal threat and showing what I can do. Showing my worth to the team – that is the next step for me.
