Sommer relishes his first days at Bayern

A few days after his lightning arrival in Munich, Yann Sommer recalls the turbulence of his first days with Bayern.

“I ignored everything that was happening around me,” said the new goalkeeper of the German champion.

The doorman of the Swiss team did not have time to worry too much, he underlines in an interview with Keystone-ATS. ‘Everything went very quickly after signing the contract last Wednesday’.

The media treatment of the two 1-1 draws against Leipzig and Cologne has reinforced his certainty that the Bundesliga leader has unprecedented expectations, even for Germany: ‘Here we demand maximum success’ .

The former Mönchengladbach goalkeeper has been following the work of FCB manager Julian Nagelsmann closely for a long time, whose game strategy is central to him: ‘I know what kind of football he has in mind, what is important to him. That’s also why I said to myself: this incredibly exciting project suits me as a goalkeeper.

After eight and a half years of ‘wonderful years at Mönchengladbach’, the Bayern theme ‘came out of nowhere. Before, I personally never considered the option of Bayern Munich, because it was not at all a subject. And this prestigious club made such a request of me. According to Sommer, this is both an honor and a duty: ‘Sportingly, this club is extremely attractive’.

The international with 80 selections does not interpret the contract until 2025 in the first place as a declaration, but as ‘a duration which gives security to me, as well as to my family’. For now, he is rightly living in the present moment.
