Bayern midfielder Joshua Kimmich has shared his memories of joining the Munich club from RB Leipzig in 2015.
“I thought: they can sign any midfielder, any player in the world. Why do they want me?” Kimmich said to ESPN.
“The first conversation I had with Guardiola was like this. I asked him why they decided to sign me, what they see in me. He showed me everything on the tactical board. It was amazing. He was showing me what positions I could play and I didn’t know I could act there. I was just like – Wow, okay.
I worked with him for a little over an hour and he’s already shown me so much. It’s been an amazing start.”
The German has played 17 games in the Bundesliga this season, scoring two goals and making 10 assists.
