FC Bayern Munich midfielder, Sarpreet Singh, has been named New Zealand Player of the Year.

Signed from Wellington Phoenix, the 20-year-old undoubtedly has the talent to develop with Die Roten. Singh is expected to feature for the newly promoted FC Bayern and is looking forward to the challenge in the 3. Liga:

It is a great honor for me! I am very happy about this award. At the same time, it is a great incentive for me. I will do my best to continue my development. I want to take the next steps at Bayern now and I’m looking forward to the upcoming tasks.

Singh featured with the first team during the pre-season tour of the United States, and the New Zealander will soon be put to work by Sebastian Hoeness as FC Bayern II aspire for a competitive season.

Prior to his move to FC Bayern, Singh made a total of twenty-eight appearances for Wellington, scoring five goals and assisting eight. Internationally, the talented midfielder featured at the U-20 level and took part in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, where New Zealand were knocked out by Colombia in the Round of 16. Singh made his debut for the senior side in 2018 against Canada, scoring his first international goal against Kenya in the 2018 Intercontinental Cup.
