In a recent interview with German news outlet inFranken.de, FC Dallas winger and German native Timo Pitter opened up about his time in North Texas.

The 24-year-old midfielder began by complimenting FC Dallas, stating that life in Big D was great. However, Pitter also discussed his desire for “something new.”

"Life in Dallas is great, the club is very well run, but sporting it was sobering.” Pitter added, “I am open to something new. I have not made a head yet, but I am home-bound."

According to the news outlet, Pitter was not eligible to play in Major League Soccer due to his visa being delayed. In result of the delay, the German midfielder was loaned to the Oklahoma City Energy FC in the USL, where he would be able to play while his visa was pending.

Once the visa was confirmed, Pitter made a return to Dallas, where speculation suggests he had lost touch with the side.

Pitter is currently home in Europe with his girlfriend, actively training to remain fit. With the midfielder open to “something new,” his days in Dallas may be over.

The 24-year-old Schweinfurt native has played professionally in Germany in the past. Playing for the fourth tier side 1. FC Schweinfurt 05, Pitter made a total 52 appearances and scored nine times.

While in OKC, the Creighton University alum played in eleven matches, scoring three goals.
