Brother vs. Brother: Paxten Aaronson shares his thoughts on upcoming Bundesliga encounter

In the high-octane world of football, few stories capture the essence of dreams, dedication, and family ties as vividly as that of Paxten Aaronson.

The 20-year-old American midfielder, known for his quick thinking and agility on the pitch, has seen a meteoric rise in his career, reminiscent of his dynamic playing style.

Paxten's journey began at Philadelphia Union, where at just 17, he made his senior MLS debut. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, US international Brenden Aaronson, Paxten quickly became a mainstay at Subaru Park. His impressive performances caught the eye of European scouts, and in November, just 18 months after his Union debut, he secured a coveted move to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

Reflecting on his aspirations, Paxten said, “It was always a goal of mine to play in Europe. Seeing players like my brother, Mark McKenzie, and Auston Trusty make the move gave me the confidence that with a few good seasons in Philadelphia, I too could join a top European club."

Paxten's stock rose significantly after leading the US to victory in the Concacaf Under-20 Championship in 2022. With eight goals to his name, he was not only the tournament's top scorer but also its best player. This success opened doors to numerous clubs showing interest in the young midfielder. Drawing inspiration from fellow Americans like Christian Pulisic, who made a mark in the Bundesliga before moving to Chelsea, Paxten felt the German league's attacking style resonated with his own.

Having an older brother who has already made a mark in European football and represents the USMNT adds an extra layer of expectation. However, Paxten remains unfazed by comparisons. “He paved that path for me. We are different players, and our bond off the field ensures I never feel any pressure from comparisons," he remarked.

The prospect of the Aaronson brothers playing against each other in the Bundesliga is tantalizing. With Brenden on loan at Union Berlin this season, their upcoming clash on November 4th promises to be an emotional and memorable affair for the family.

Paxten's transition to the Bundesliga has been smooth. He made his debut for Eintracht Frankfurt in March, replacing World Cup winner Mario Götze. His consistent performances have earned him more game time, and he registered his first assist in September's draw against Cologne.

On the international front, Paxten and Brenden became the eighth set of siblings to represent the USMNT. While they haven't shared the pitch at the international level yet, Paxten dreams of the day they do. “Playing together for the national team is the number one thing. It's something we've dreamed of since we were kids,” he shared.

Kaj pa vem. Mislil sem da je počasi prišel čas, da dobi Cesar samostojno priložnost. Očitno še ni.

Tole je pa res smola za Olimpijo. Bil je prava menjava za Pedra, v bistvu še boljši od njega. Je pa Olimpija na srečo zdaj še dlje od naslova :)

"Presenetil me je prestop v Bordeaux, to je sicer velik prestop, dobra pogodba. Ampak druga francoska liga. Ne morem si misliti, da bi naš igralec s Hrvaškem po takšni sezoni šel v takšen prestop. Bolje bi mu bilo, da bi igral v klubu, ki igra napadalni nogomet in je dominanten, ker bi zabil več golov. Zato sem mislil, da je Dinamo zanj boljša opcija. ...več

daj že nekaj mesecev vem, da morda sploh ne bom nikoli več igral. Več kot eno leto nisem igral nogomet. Ne morem povedati veliko, ampak ne morete si predstavljati, kaj preživljam. Skušam okrevati, ampak sem sprejel idejo, da morda ne bom več igral nogometa. ...več

"Z nogometno zvezo imam pogodbo, ki me veže do Eura, toda začeli smo že pogovore in pričakujem, da se bo razrešilo v naslednjih nekaj dneh. Ne vidim rad, da me vlačijo po govoricah, tega je bilo zadnja leta preveč. Razmišljam o pripravi na Euro. Dobili smo tudi skupino v ligi narodov, želim pa nadaljevati to pot s sijajno skupino igralcev in strokovnim štabom, ki je opravil velik posel. ...več
