It sure has been a tough month for former Chivas players in Europe. Similar to Oswaldo Alanís’ situation, Mexican international Marco Fabian has been left out of Eintracht Frankfurt’s first team, forcing him to try to find playing time at a new club.

According to ESPN Mexico, head coach Adi Hütter has demoted Fabian from the Bundesliga squad and sent him down to the “second training group”

“Fabian knows what it is about, the possibility is that he will change teams”, Hütter said, who is opting to play more youth this season with Frankfurt. ”I am aware that we are losing importance (on the value of Fabian on the pitch), of course there are a few concerns, that is clear and valid.”

Fabian started in the DFL-Supercup match against Bayern Munich on August 12, in which Frankfurt lost 5-0 in what was his last game with the German side.

Destinations for Fabian are not clear, but Turkish side Besiktas, who also had interest in Diego Reyes, look to make a move for the 29-year-old as well.

Fabian has stated that Besiktas is not the only club calling, however, and that his decision will come very soon.

“My future will be decided this week,” Fabian said via “There are offers from many places, but it’s important to make the best decision for all parties involved.”

Fabian was a part of Mexico’s 2018 FIFA World Cup squad that exited in the Round of 16. He played in one game, coming on as a substitute against Sweden on June 27.

The former Chivas and Cruz Azul midfielder played limited minutes with Frankfurt last season due to a back injury that required surgery. In his three seasons Fabian made 50 appearances for Die Adler in all competitions, scored eight goals and won the 2018 DFB-Pokal.
