Bayern Munich’s new sporting director Christoph Freund has only been here a few weeks, but he has already enjoyed his time with Germany’s best club:

I’ve been here for two weeks now and when you experience this club, it’s special. I’m enjoying it a lot; I’ve gained a lot of impressions. You can tell that the expectations are high here. I want to bring in my own ideas. It will be different than in Salzburg. I want to bring the club closer together and remain successful. [Working with Thomas Tuchel] is a lot of fun.

On the squad: We don’t have a huge squad in number, but we want to develop a special energy. Many players will get a lot of playing time. If we don’t have injuries, we can develop a dynamic. Then we’ll see what happens in January. Everyone now has the chance to prove themselves.

It looks like his first big task is to pluck João Palhinha from Fulham FC after the collapsed deal last month.
