Bayern Munich finished their training camp in Tegernsee with a familiar dinner with a band playing live music. However, the highlight of the night was clearly when players experiencing their first preseason training camp with Bayern had to get up in front of the club and sing some karaoke.
Thanks to the wonderful @FCBayern on Instagram, we have video of some of the singing! Folks, we have Alphonso Davies, Fiete Arp, Lucas Hernandez, and Sarpreet Singh breaking down some fantastic karaoke for your entertainment.
Everyone’s favorite Canadian went for it all. Of all the songs that he had the options to sing, Davies went for “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. Boy oh boy. Risky choice to try and karaoke one of the greatest power ballads of all time. The thing that immediately stood out to me in this video is just how comfortable Davies is in getting up and singing in front of his teammates.
The discussion among us BFW writers was, “How in the world does Arp know this song?” Fiete broke out a classic from 1971 with “Country Roads” by John Denver. Is Fiete into country music?
Lucas broke out an all-timer and went even further back than Arp with Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba”. He’s singing it way too fast for the music, but we’ll forgive him.
Last but not least, Singh stood up in front of all of his Bayern teammates, with that sweet New Zealand accent, where he announced that he would be singing “Baby” by Justin Bieber. Watch the embarrassment that Renato Sanches feels for Sarpreet.
There was more! Niko Kovac stepped up and sang “99 Luftballons”! Benjamin Pavard sang something in French! Javi Martinez played the guitar! Unfortunately, there’s no videos of these things. At least, there’s no video that we’ve found.
