Bitter news for Sarpreet Singh.
The 23-year loan from FC Bayern is not allowed to play for Jahn Regensburg until the winter break due to a formal error.
Munich – bankruptcies, bad luck and breakdowns at Sarpreet Singh.
The 23-year-old New Zealander, who is still under contract with FC Bayern until 2024, is currently being held back by a pubic infection and is working on his comeback.
The midfielder actually wanted to attack again soon at loan club SSV Jahn Regensburg and gain match practice.
But he will not be able to play in eleventh place in the Bundesliga 2 before the winter break.
SSV Jahn Regensburg: Sarpreet Singh not eligible to play due to a formal error
The reason is a formal error, as the club announced on its website on Tuesday.
"As a result of an untimely notification of the loan transfer from Sarpreet Singh to SSV Jahn to the German Football League (DFL for short), no right to play for the first half of the 2022/23 season could be granted to date," the club said.
Singh can only be registered in the coming winter transfer window and is then eligible to play for Regensburg.
"We are very unhappy about the processes and circumstances that led to this situation," Hans Rothammer, CEO of the SSV, is quoted as saying.
"In a personal dialogue with Sarpreet Singh, we were able to explain the facts and, in particular, to express our regret."
SSV Jahn Regensburg: Coach Selimbegovic speaks of a heavy blow for Singh and the club
Mersad Selimbegovic is also frustrated: "Of course, that was a heavy blow for us too, which we first had to cope with together with Sarpreet," says the head coach of the Regensburg team.
"But we are now looking ahead and will make the best of the situation in close cooperation with Sarpreet."
FC Bayern is not to blame.
Those responsible at Säbener Straße handed Singh over to the Rothosen for another season after the failed move to Werder Bremen.
Apparently Regensburg forgot to register the player with the DFL in good time after the commitment.
The formal error may have already had the first consequences.
Sports director Roger Stilz was fired after less than a year.
The Swiss had been able to convince Singh and FC Bayern to return to the Danube after 25 appearances and five goals last season.
Until the winter break, Jahn still has eight games in the 2nd Bundesliga and one game in the DFB Cup against Düsseldorf.
