Another American-German bursts on Bundesliga scene

MOST COMMENTED

Born to a father who was an American GI and German mother, Timothy Chandler became the latest American-German to play in the Bundesliga when he debuted at the age of 20 for Nuremberg last weekend.

His rise follows a switch from Eintracht Frankfurt to Nuremberg last summer and a fall spent on Nuremberg's under-23 team. "Everything is working out well," Chandler said. "It's a great decision to play for Nuremberg."

Chandler, who plays on the right side in the back and midfield, is eligible to play internationally for Germany or the United States, and he could follow in the footsteps of U.S. internationals Thomas Dooley, David Wagner, Michael Mason and Jermaine Jones -- all German-bred players with no other connection to the USA than that their fathers were American GIs.

"I would love to play for the United States and I am interested in playing in for the U.S. national team more than I am interested in the German national team," Chandler said "But first thing is that I need to get more experience with Nuremberg."
