In an interview with

Bayern's official club magazine

, the 27-year-old playmaker has talked about his Bayern move and a ‘dream come true’.

"It's a childhood dream come true, that's for sure. Having always run around proudly in my Bayern kit as a young lad, it's the ultimate feeling. I dreamed of FC Bayern and back then it was a very distant. Now I can't stop grinning,"

Sabitzer said.

He added:

"It was a result of how often the matches were shown on TV. My father watched a lot of football and often it was FC Bayern matches, so one thing led the other.

"Zé Roberto and Giovane Élber were my two big heroes. Zé Roberto because he was such a machine in midfield, and Elber up front because of his star appeal. I often played in attack as a child, so it was natural."
