“After three years in the Bene League I am going on to make the next step. Many clubs from Europe have offered me contracts to come and play for them, and to make the right choice, I visited several clubs. On my visit to Bayern Munich it felt good and I saw what a top club Bayern Munich are. It felt like a warm family club and had pleasant conversations. In my conversations with scout Ger Beckers and afterwards with coach Thomas Wörle who told me the ambitions of the club for the future clearly the passionate way Thomas Wörle talked about football and his ideas appealed to me. I look forward to coming and play for Bayern and I hope these goals and dreams of Bayern can be achieve. “My contribution and scoring ability, along with the team”
