On Playing Football

We are going to start the article with the

Joshua Kimmich quotes on football

. Here he talks about his style and his way of thinking about football.

I just started playing football because it’s fun for me, it’s the best thing for me.

I always try to find the solution before I receive the ball. Afterward, I have to control it and pass it. But when you knew before where you wanted to play, then all the things would go faster.

The following quotes of the Joshua Kimmich quotes show the importance of a good coach on promoting in football.

As a young player, the most important thing besides having a very good coach is to play a lot because you improve that way.

It’s really important for a young guy to have a coach who wants to improve you and believes in you.

Let’s keep on reading the rest of the Joshua Kimmich quotes on football.

I know my weaknesses and work on them - especially when I'm not playing, I try to do more.

It’s not that it doesn’t matter to me where I play, but it’s secondary.

The only important thing is your performance. If you perform well, then you get the respect of your teammates.

For me, it’s all the time a big challenge to play against the best player of the opponent. I think only with this I can develop and grow for myself.

In the next

Joshua Kimmich top quotes

, he compares playing in an empty stadium with playing in a stadium with fans.

 Normally you have more adrenaline and more tension inside your body when you walk in and see the 80000 fans screaming.

It’s really different without the fans because there is less atmosphere, no screaming after every corner or chance. But the positive is you can communicate with each other. You can speak with each other. You can hear what the coach is screaming on the touchline. 

Normally you have more adrenaline and tension when you see 80000 fans, screaming after every corner or chance. You have to push yourself and your teammates. Normally when there are fans, you are focused just because of that. You feel mistakes more. Also, you feel more if you score a goal.

Normally when there are fans you are focused just because of that, because you know when you’re going to make a mistake, everybody is like, 'Whoa', you feel this mistake more. Also, you feel more if you score a goal. It’s more emotional when there are fans.

I just know that it is strange if you win a game at the Allianz Arena and cannot celebrate with your fans.

It's more emotional when there are fans.

Now it’s time to read the Joshua Kimmich quotes on his position.

My favorite position is in the midfield. I think I can play to my strengths there. I can communicate with every player. I’m more in the game because as a right-back you have to stay on one side and you’re not always in the game for 90 minutes. So I prefer the center midfield position.

Every position is a bit different, but for a young player, it’s important to be able to play different positions, to see the game from a different view, to learn of every position. Because you need different skills, and it’s perfect for a young player to develop.

I’m happy to play in any position. I would not, however, be the perfect striker.

Let’s go on with the other

Joshua Kimmich quotes

which are about his profession.

We as footballers, like with Sancho, have a lot of power to reach other people, to be role models and to say something. What we say to people outside gives us a big chance to make a statement.

As footballers, we have a certain responsibility. We have the responsibility to talk about things.

I’m not scared of any other player, but I normally know the quality of the others and try to be ready before the game. But I don’t forget my own style to play soccer.

If I had a choice between playing and watching, then I would always decide to play every time.

When you’re fit but you can’t play, it’s very hard, especially for the head, especially for a young player. But all you can do is train hard and give your best. Afterward, it’s the decision of the coach. 

In football, it is normal that coaches and players change. There is always a new environment and you have to prove yourself again and again.

You can always learn lessons.

I want to create chances and also maybe score.

Praise is great, but it’s also an incentive.

In every game, I want to perform well, not for me, for the team.

You have to go to the limit every day as a player, or others will take over.

My role model was always Xavi Hernandez from Barcelona.

I played many positions under Guardiola. That helps to see the game from a different perspective, you learn more.

Before joining Bayern Munich

In this part of the article on

Joshua Kimmich quotes

, we are going over his words at the time before joining FC Bayern.

I grew up in the small German village of Bösingen, which is located between Black Forest and the state capital of Stuttgart. And when I say small, I mean small. In our village, there were no more than 1700 people. And we all loved football, but there weren’t a lot of places for us boys around town to play in.

My parents’ garden is where I learned to play - and love - football. When I was little, only 4 or 5, I’d be out there with my dad, who taught me how to pass and shoot, first with my left foot and then with my right.

Here is one of the Joshua Kimmich quotes on Stuttgart, where he moved to after leaving Bösingen.

At 14 I went to Stuttgart academy and it was a big dream. But I felt lonely. It also got hard later. At 18 I hoped to play in the second team but the club said I was not strong enough.

Now it’s time to have a look at Joshua Kimmich quotes on RB Leipzig.

I played at RB Leipzig from 2013 to 2015, and my coach was Alexander Zorniger. He was a coach who was very focused on the details. He did a lot of analytics and we were focused at Leipzig on the play against the ball.

At RB Leipzig at first, I was 18 years old. I was the youngest player in the squad and so at first, it wasn’t easy because I came there with an injury.

On FC Bayern & Mannschaft

In this part, we are going to have a look at the

Joshua Kimmich best quotes

on the Reds of Munich and the German national team.

On FC Bayern 

As a young boy, I had gone to a Bayern match with my father. I had never seen such a big stadium before, and it was overwhelming. Everything was so big, so loud.

It’s my goal to establish myself at Bayern Munich.

There are seriously talented players who have been around for a long time, both in the national team and with Bayern, so there’s always a danger of not playing so often.

I knew when I came here it wouldn’t all be easy, that I wouldn’t play every game. But my goal was to be a part of Bayern, to be a starter. I want to achieve things here.

The following quotes are two of the Joshua Kimmich best quotes that show his passion for staying at Bayern Munich.

It’s a fact I don’t want to leave Bayern Munich.

It’s not only conceivable, but it’s my goal to stay at Bayern for a long time - under the assumption that I play.

Let’s go on with the other Joshua Kimmich quotes on FC Bayern.

When I came to Bayern, I was a second-division player. For me, it was a new world.

At FC Bayern, you know that every year, you have to compete for titles - but, on the other hand, there is a possibility of stagnating at Bayern if you do not get the chances to play.

You’ve got to have self-confidence that you’re going to make it at Bayern and I have that self-confidence.

This is the most special thing at Bayern Munich. They won everything, but the players still want to win more.

Here is what Joshua Kimmich said about their extraordinary win over Barcelona.

It’s hard to comprehend beating Barcelona 8-2.

On Mannschaft

Now it’s time to have a look at the Joshua Kimmich quotes which are about the German national team.

I am a national player myself and I know how special it is to play for Germany.

I’m obviously aware that Germany’s head-to-head record with Italy is not particularly positive. I myself have memories from a few previous encounters. I was 11 years old for the 2006 disappointment and the 2012 match is obviously much fresher in my memory.

Both with Bayern and with the national team, I have a lot of teammates who have achieved a lot more than me - most of them are world champions, European champions or Champions League winners.
