Tajon Buchanan was supposed to be heading to California to play in the 2021 MLS All-Star Game but the Canadian has taken a detour.
Images arose from Buchanan’s Instagram story of him on a plane nearly 24 hours ago. Besides what appeared to be a lackluster movie selection, some sleuthing might have determined where Buchanan is headed.
On Monday, MLS announced that along with Carles Gil, Buchanan would be missing out on the All-Star game. This was rather shocking as the winger had played on Saturday in New England’s 4-1 win.
Matching up the time with flights from Boston it’s easy to see that Buchanan could be headed to Germany.
Tajon Buchanan posted on his IG story that he was onboard a flight - to which some Twitter users have pointed out is a United Business Class flight…— Revolution Nation (@RevsNationBOS) August 23, 2021
18 hours ago, A United Jet left Boston Logan Airport to Frankfurt (FRA).
Great Timing. #NERevs | #MLS | #TajonWatch pic.twitter.com/ht4Q5aops9
But mlssoccer.com writer Tom Bogert pondered if Buchanan actually was leaving from Boston. If you look at his agent’s Instagram page, Buchanan was with him at presumably his home which is in Washington D.C. There was a flight that left at a similar time with Munich as a destination.
Tajon was with his agent who is located near DC, let’s take a look at some international flights out of there #NERevs #TajonWatch pic.twitter.com/IKinXAv6ZE— Sam Minton (@sam_minton22) August 23, 2021
Buchanan has been linked to clubs in the Bundesliga so this definitely makes sense. The final straw came from Buchanan’s agent. He posted some pictures on his Instagram story that appear to tell exactly where the Canadian is headed.
I think Tajon is going to Freiburg #NERevs pic.twitter.com/bktvWLRpXr— Sam Minton (@sam_minton22) August 23, 2021
Freiburg was one of the clubs that Buchanan was linked to. It would be a great step for Buchanan who would join a club that just defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1
The only step left is for an official announcement but it sure seems like Buchanan will be playing soccer in Germany at some point in the near future.
