“It’s hard to say where Stendera would be right now had it not been for his cruciate ligament rupture last July. Stendera broke into the first team at the end of the season last year (became the fifth youngest Bundesliga debutant in history at the age of 17) following a fantastic spell with Frankfurt’s U-19s in which he scored eight goals in 13 games. Fortunately he is finally recovering and trained with the team in their winter camp. Stendera has also been a regular for Germany’s youth teams and reached the U-17 Euro final in 2012. Equally capable playing off the striker as he is out wide, Stendera has a low center of gravity, great technique and fantastic in one-on-one situations. In other words, he is a typical modern German attacking player. If he can bounce back from his injury and reach his potential we will be talking quite a bit about Frankfurt’s jewel.”
