"I want to return to Bayern a better player" says Sarpreet Singh

Thu 14 January 2021 | 22:36

New Zealand international, Sarpreet Singh is interested to convince Bayern Munich that he is at the level to play at the Allianz Arena when he finally rejoins Bundesliga champions.

The 21-year-old shone while representing New Zealand at the Under-20 World Cup in 2019. 

His first-team events were not a lot and were far between at Die Roten, with Singh being at their feeder team most of 2019-20 before joining Nurnburg on loan this season. 

With the team having his back, the player is looking forward to another game to show his skills to coach Hansi Flick.

"I want to return to Bayern as a better player in the summer and fight for a regular place," Singh said.

"I believe in asserting myself at FC Bayern. This is my plan. But you can never make serious predictions in football. Who knows, maybe I'll stay in Nuremberg too.

"I haven't spoken to Hansi [Flick] since the summer, but I'm in close contact with the FC Bayern scouts. They follow my games very closely, give me feedback on my performance and show me where I can improve. This is very important to me.

"In the summer I exchanged ideas with Hansi about my situation and future almost every other day. He looks after the whole team, but especially the young players like me. I am very grateful to him for that... He advised me directly to take the chance (to change loan to Nuremberg, editor's note).

"Match practice is the most important thing at my age. And it is naturally not that easy to get from the professionals at FC Bayern."

Singh

was a big supporter of England's Premier League while growing up. 

"I would often get up at three a.m. to watch the Premier League. I was a big Chelsea fan because of an English childhood friend. He infected me with his passion."

Joining

Bayern

was a big culture shock for him too, but he counted on the kindness of the team to help him fit in. 

"Thomas Müller was the first player on the professional team I had contact with,"

he continued. 

"He approached me and asked where I come from and how I was doing. Müller was the greatest help with the integration, but everyone else also made sure that I felt welcome very quickly.

"During my first few weeks in Munich, I also spent a lot of time with my agent, a scout from FC Bayern and the English-speaking guys from the reserve like Chris Richards."
