You were born in Munich and spent your most recent years in Augsburg. How big is the difference from being in the south of Germany to the north?
It’s a pretty big change, especially with the weather. My sister told me that back down south it was 35 degrees Celsius yesterday, but here in Bremen it was rainy and cold (smiles). Despite that though, I feel good.
How were your opening days with the team?
I haven’t met any of the lads before, so it’s all new ground for me, but the team gave me a great welcome. The lads are all hilarious, which is something I didn’t expect – you always have an idea of how people are, but it was completely different here. I’ve already had a lot of laughs with Duckschi and Felix Agu.
Will this be your first pre-season training session with a first team?
Yes, this is my first pre-season with a professional squad. I trained a few times with Augsburg’ first team and they named me in the squad, but this is my first pre-season. I’m expecting the jump up from U19s to first team to be big, but I’m optimistic that I can hold my own.
