Bayern Munich announced the arrival of 23-year-old Israeli goalkeeper Daniel Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv. A €5 million fee was agreed upon by the two clubs, which sent the young man on his way to Munich. Robbie Keane, Maccabi’s coach, spoke highly of Peretz.
“He’s been an unbelievable player for this club,” the ex-Tottenham Hotspur and LA Galaxy striker said (via The Athletic). “All I can say, since we’ve been here, is how humble and professional he is as a person. He’s a lovely kid, understands the game, understands what it’s like to be in a team. Of course, he’s sad that he’s going to be missing his team-mates, but he’s going to one of the biggest clubs in the world. We couldn’t stand in his way.”
Although Keane has been in charge for only two months, he saw that Bayern have got themselves a promising player.
