Matthijs de Ligt has come a long way since he signed for Bayern Munich from Juventus. The 24-year-old Dutchman has not only been a solid defender at the back, but he’s also become a fan favorite (a distinction that teammate Kingsley Coman also holds). Well, fans will love him even more because the former Ajax captain just called Bayern the “best thing in Germany”:

MDL said that the point that Italy holds over Germany is the food. Maybe he ought to try one of Uli Hoeneß’ world famous sausages™, he will definitely change his mind then. He also said that Germany is a bit like the Netherlands, probably due to the fact that the two countries are right next to each other. This explains why Marc-Andrè ter Stegen has his surname.

Either way, the fans are absolutely loving MDL and everyone hopes that the big guy stays with Bayern for a very long time.
