Corentin Tolisso out to prove he deserves more time at Bayern Munich

The Frenchman realizes his spot on the depth chart and wants to change it as soon as possible.

At many clubs, France midfielder Corentin Tolisso would be a shoo-in starter.

Bayern Munich, however, is one of the few places where Tolisso is a bench player.

With a great nose for the ball and excellent box-to-box ability, Tolisso genuinely seemed like one of the best midfielders in the world just a few seasons ago.

Injuries, however, have made things extremely difficult on the 26-year-old. Now, Tolisso finds himself relegated to a reserve role — one that he does not appear to be very fond of.

In an interview with AFP (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Tolisso touched on his standing at Bayern Munich and why facing off against Germany’s Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka — the two players above him on Bayern Munich’s depth chart — is so important.

“At the moment, we know very well that at Bayern, it’s them who have the most game time and are ahead of me,” Tolisso said. “It will be up to me to show them that I can do great things too. They are my teammates, but that day we will be opponents.”
