During their pregame coverage for the German Supercup between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Fox Soccer’s (and Sports Illustrated’s) Grant Wahl sat down with Julian Green for an interview on his future at Bayern and what his prospects are for playing time during the season.
Carlo Ancelotti and Xabi Alonso are also interviewed by Wahl for the piece and emphasize that the biggest key to playing for Bayern, as well as Green played in the preseason, remains consistency.
Here’s the biggest takeaway from the piece. Why is Green so intent on fighting for a spot on Bayern’s first team instead of running off and trying to play for a lesser team?
"Bayern has always been my club. I’ve played here since I was fourteen years old. I grew up near Munich. It’s my dream and my goal to play here for the first team, and I’ll work hard for it."
