Serge Gnabry might be slightly bashful next time he shows his face at Bayern Munich.
The former Arsenal midfielder signed for Bayern in the summer after an impressive season with Werder Bremen but was immediately loaned to Hoffenheim.
Gnabry came face to face with his parent club in the Bundesliga today and wasted little time in getting involved.
Gnabry was fouled in the box by Joshua Kimmich after just two minutes.
The 22-year-old picked himself up and took the penalty but saw his effort saved by Bayern keeper Sven Ulreich.
Luckily for Gnabry his team-mate Mark Uth was on hand to tap in the rebound and put Hoffenheim ahead.
Now the very cynical amongst you might be slightly suspicious about Gnabry missing a penalty against his parent club.
But ten minutes later Gnabry put any of those doubts to bed with an emphatic strike.
The German international pounced on a loose touch by Jerome Boateng to bury a shot past Ulreich from 25-yards out.
Cue a slightly awkward tweet from Bayern.
We can confirm that Gnabry did not celebrate, showing his love for the club that he’s yet to officially play for.
But Bayern fought back, as they tend to do, with four goals in 45 minutes giving them a commanding lead in the game.
We’re sure there’s a certain club in north London that could do with a free scoring young midfielder.
