When Marcel Sabitzer’s transfer to Bayern Munich went official earlier, it marked the end of a summer saga that too some dips and dives before coming to fruition.

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.”
