Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich has taken some away from his duties for Germany to reflect on the first few weeks of the Bundesliga season and had some interesting thoughts.

”The Bundesliga is more interesting. Dortmund players are particularly happy with that. Of course you hear a few things here, especially from Niki Süle. As a Bayern player, you want to be at the top. The season is still long,” Kimmich said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).

One Bayern Munich player who could help the squad get back to the top of the table of the Bundesliga is Serge Gnabry. Gnabry has not been able to lock down a starting position under Julian Nagelsmann this season, but could find his way back to more playing time soon enough.

“Serge is an extremely important player for us because he’s direct and always looking for the goal. Now he hasn’t played quite as often from the start, but I and we as a team have a lot of trust in him. We know what he’s capable of,” Kimmich said.
