SERGE GNABRY OPENS ABOUT HIS TEAMMATES
Serge Gnabry has opened up about his time at Bayern and especially how difficult it is to see his teammates leave. The winger said that he will miss his friends after spending so much time together.
“It’s a shame for me when people with whom I am very close friends leave the club. Over the years you just get used to being with guys like David, Jerome or Javi, sharing the locker room with them and doing a lot together privately. I am very sad about it – and will miss them every day” said Gnabry.
He also pointed out that footballers are misunderstood easily. This was in response to the fans calling Alaba greedy for leaving Bayern to join Real Madrid. He said that people say footballers are all about money, but reiterated that there are more to their decisions than money.
Gnabry also shared about the expectation for the Euro 2020 and discussed his favorite player. The winger said that Didier Drogba was his favorite of all-time players, only after Zinedine Zidane. The player also spoke about his African roots.
PROVING HIS DOUBTERS WRONG
Serge Gnabry is in his third season with the Bundesliga giants. During his time, the German has been prolific. He appeared 126 times for the club in all competitions and scored 47 times for them. Gnabry can also fill in a right-winger by trade at the left-wing and even as a central striker.
The German winger had a tough start to his career. His time in England was difficult as he could not establish himself with Arsenal or West Bromwich Albion. However, he turned around his fortune and proved his haters wrong.
Gnabry has become a regular for the German national side, a strong creator and finisher of the ball. The 25-year-old has scored a ridiculous 16 goals from just 21 matches for his nation. He is a key member of Die Mannschaft in their ongoing Euro 2020 campaign.
