Luca Waldschmidt has been enjoying a fantastic 2019/2020 campaign with SC Freiburg thus far, as the Breisgau-Brasilianer have been the Bundesliga’s surprise package through 13 match-weeks, sitting in 6th place. Waldschmidt has tallied a total of 5 goals from 11 appearances across all competitions, which is already more than half of the 9 goals and 3 assists he provided last season from a total of 32 appearances.
He’s currently recovering from multiple injuries he sustained from a nasty collision in Germany’s 4-0 Euro qualifying win over Belarus, but that hasn’t stopped Waldschmidt from remaining ambitious about his future. Speaking to t-online (via Spox), the 23-year old striker said that he could see himself playing for Bayern Munich in the future:
[Bayern] is the greatest and most successful club in Germany. To suit up for this club would be something really special. But that’s a topic I haven’t thought all too much about thus far.
Unfortunately, Waldschmidt also said that he’d fancy playing for Real Madrid, which the majority of Bayern fans, including us here at BFW, will absolutely cringe at:
I think Real Madrid is really cool. The stadium, the special status of this club. And: I like to play in white cleats and am generally fond of the color white. Toni Kroos moreover plays there.
In addition to his ambitions of playing for either Bayern or Real Madrid, Waldschmidt is confident he can stake a claim in Joachim Low’s roster for Euro 2020 this summer. His brief appearance against Belarus was his third cap for Germany’s first team. He said, “I’d like to convince Joachim Löw that he cannot do without me.”
He’s still predicted to be out until the end of 2019, but Waldschmidt is eager to come back stronger than before in the Rückrunde for Freiburg. While it might not realistically be an option for quite some time, if he continues to improve, he could prove to be a valuable asset for Bayern if and when that time ever comes.
