Sabitzer, himself, was happy to finally see the process come to an end.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to play for FC Bayern. As a child my Bayern jersey was my pride and joy – I got a new one at Christmas every year,” Sabitzer remarked to the club website. “I’ll give everything for this club, I want to win as many matches as possible and of course collect lots of titles.”
Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn was ecstatic to acquire such a valuable player at such a paltry fee.
“Marcel Sabitzer offers everything that an FC Bayern player needs. On top of that, he won’t need long to settle in as he’s already well-acquainted with the philosophy of our coach Julian Nagelsmann,” Kahn said.
As for sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic, bolstering his club’s roster with such a good player was a stunning achievement.
“We’re very happy to have brought Marcel Sabitzer to FC Bayern. Marcel is a very good footballer, he has a great mentality, he’s very ambitious and he carried responsibility on and off the pitch as captain of RB,” Salihamidzic said. “Our coach knows him very well and what a leader he is. We’re looking forward to having him.”
