Kingsley Michael joins SV Ried on a season-long loan

  • The 22-year old joins from Italian Serie A club, Bologna
  • Michael made only two appearances in 2020/2021
  • Recently recovered from a fractured fibula

22-year old Super Eagles midfielder, Kingsley Michael has joined Austrian Bundesliga side, SV Ried, on a season-long loan from Bologna FC in the Italian Serie A.

Michael is hoping for a big comeback to football, having been out of action since he suffered a fractured fibula against Udinese in October 2021.

The transfer was announced on their website, with a statement from the club's sporting director saying, "Due to the injuries in the past few weeks, we had to take action, especially in central midfield. We deliberately took our time in our search to find a player who fits our requirements profile. We think we've found that type of player in Kingsley Michael. He is dynamic and aggressive in duels. It's a win-win situation for both Bologna and us. Kingsley Michael gets game practice with us, we get a very good player."

In his first interview with the club, Michael said "I want to support SV Guntamatic Ried as best I can, but also learn from the team. The coach explained the project to me here in Ried and that goes very well with my understanding of football. My strength is that I press high and I can definitely help the team with that. I am also very familiar with Austria because I had a personal coach in Linz.”
