In the Bundesliga game between Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin last weekend, Bayern Munich teenager Richards started as a right back. Richards gave Lewand an assist in the game. In an interview, Richards said that being able to represent Bayern in the Bundesliga is his dream.
Richards also set a record in the starting field. Richards became the first American player in Bayern's history to start in the Bundesliga. Before Donovan and Green were only substitutes in the Bundesliga.
Richards said: "Entering Bayern's starting lineup is incredible. Having the opportunity to play alongside those teammates who have already had wonderful experience has fulfilled my dream. To be the first to represent Bayern in the Bundesliga. American players, this is a great honor."
Bayern coach Frick praised Richards: "Richards's performance is good, this is not an easy game for him. He can be satisfied with his first start, he can continue like this."
