In a recent interview with Bild, Bayern Munich’s Marc Roca talked through his early days with Bayern Munich, how he eschews stardom, and why he was not intimidated by walking into a locker room full of stars.
“I joined a team full of superstars. When you arrive in the cabin you immediately notice that these are all normal people with normal interests, a lot of humanity and a great willingness to help. I love that! I want to be open to new things beyond football and I think Germany and its society are perfect for this,” Roca said.
As for being able to live a normal life out of the spotlight. Roca said keeping a low profile in Germany is not that hard.
“Footballers are very respected here — unlike in Spain, where many players have to isolate themselves. You can lead a normal life here, which is very important to me,” said Roca.
