He has been clocked as the fastest in 1.B, and that helps him get breakaways for goal attempts. His touch is getting better. Of his 7 goals, 2 are from the penalty spot so 5 have been from open play.How highly do you rate Silas?
If he has a "banner year" in 1.B, then I fully expect a club like Bayern or Real Madrid to come and make an offer for him. Maybe not at the end of this season, but certainly next season if his form continues. The entire VfB squad, in fact, has adapted to life in 1.B fairly quickly. They lost to Freiburg in the first week, but when they play Freiburg again, I fully expect them to win.
My hope is that VfB are a big enough club to hang on to him and the other young players. Sosa, in particular, is catching the eye and I wouldn't be surprised if Bayern came in for him at the end of the season.
