5 Clubs with the Youngest Squads in the 2021/2022 Bundesliga Musim

The Bundesliga is known for often producing some outstanding young talents. In recent years, young footballers have even opted for a career in the Bundesliga over other leagues.

This is because the Bundesliga is able to provide great opportunities for new players to develop, for example Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, to Dani Olmo. It’s no surprise that Bundesliga clubs have some of the youngest squads. Here are the five clubs with the youngest squads in the 2021/2022 Bundesliga season.

1. VfB Stuttgart

Stuttgart is one of the most successful clubs in Germany. They have five Bundesliga titles. They are also producers of some of the top talent, such as Mario Gomez, Timo Werner and Joshua Kimmich.

This season they also rely on a row of talented young players. Stuttgart even became the youngest squad not only in the Bundesliga but also in Europe’s top leagues. Konstantinos Mavropanos, Borna Sosa, and Omar Marmoush are potential names. However, at this time they have to struggle at the bottom of the table by being ranked 17th.

2. Bayer Leverkusen

The club was formed in May 2009, but has become one of the most consistent clubs in the Bundesliga. This is the sixth season in a row that they have been able to compete in the top flight. One of the keys to club management is investing in talented young players.

This season RB Leipzig has an average squad age of 24.6 years. They are currently competing to qualify for the Champions League by placing sixth. Top young players, such as Dani Olmo, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Tyler Adams have been key players for the club this season.

This Bavarian club has a no less great history in German football. They collected three German League titles before the Bundesliga era. However, in recent years, they have played more often in the second division. However, Furth managed to get promoted to the main caste this season.

Unfortunately, they have to struggle at the bottom of the table at the moment. They are seven points adrift of the safety zone. Their current squad has an average age of 25.3 years.

5. Arminia Bielefeld

This is Arminia Bielefeld’s second season since promotion to the Bundesliga in the 2020/2021 season. Like last season, they still rely on a row of young talents in the first team. Florian Kruger and Patrick Wimmer are two of the most prominent names.

The team had an average age of 25.4 years. Until the 25th week, they are ranked 15th and are only three points away from the relegation zone. They need to focus and improve their performance if they don’t want to return to the second tier.

Relying on young players can be very risky due to lack of experience. However, they have an impressive fighting spirit and are able to keep growing. It will not be surprising if in the future a new star candidate for European football will emerge from the five clubs above.
