Published 1 Comments

Adnan Januzaj won't be ending his loan spell with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund prematurely, according to Michael Zorc.

As reported by ESPN, Dortmund's sporting director claims that the prospect of Januzaj returning to Manchester United early is 'not an issue' at this stage.

The talented teenager, who completed a season-long loan move to the German outfit this past summer, has endured a tricky start to the campaign under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.

In fact, Januzaj, 20, still hasn't started a Bundesliga game for Dortmund and has only managed to secure 15 minutes of game time in the club's last four league outings. However, despite his difficulties, it appears that he won't be returning to Old Trafford in the near future. 

Zorc has insisted that Januzaj is only struggling for opportunities because BVB are enjoying an 'extraordinary season'.

When asked about the prospect of Januzaj ending his loan spell with the club early, Zorc told Kicker: "That's currently not an issue.

"We play an extraordinary season, and the others do an incredible job. There is no reason to bench them."

It's not ideal 

In any case, Januzaj can't be happy right now. Things really haven't worked out for him in Dortmund and he must be a rather frustrated figure.

In truth, he would have probably enjoyed more game-time in Manchester. Before leaving Old Trafford behind, the versatile forward was actually enjoying a steady spell in the first-team.

However, with the likes of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard coming to prominence, Januzaj will have his work cut out to get back in the United team. As it stands, the Belgium international appears to be in limbo as his career continues to stall.
