19-year-old forward Jann-Fiete Arp has been enjoying his first weeks with German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

19-year-old attacker Jann-Fiete Arp has been enjoying his time training with Bayern Munich ahead of the 2019-2020 German Bundesliga season.

“It definitely did [feel special joining Bayern]. The names are bigger, the grounds are bigger and the facilities are amazing,” he told the Bundesliga official website.

“I had a peek at them previously but being around the lads now is a dream come true.”

“I’ve never experienced anything like [the tour of the USA] but I think every player dreams about playing against Real Madrid for Bayern Munich,” he added.

“This whole trip; the destinations, the cities, the people you meet, it really is extreme.”

“Nothing I have ever experienced compares to the speed of the game [at Bayern]. I’ve played Bundesliga and other games but here it seems like a different sport,” he commented.

“It’s quite incredible to see first hand how these guys perform and what the actual differences are.”

The youngster explained: “You can’t see that on TV and it really is fascinating to see what the Bayern players have achieved over the past years. I hope I can integrate here and be successful.”

“I joined Bayern at 19 and I still have many things to improve in all areas,” he said.

“Because of the quality of the training sessions, I don’t think there’s a better place for me to develop.”

“I don’t have a specific plan and I think it’s difficult. You never know how far you can go but as a young player what I want to do is use my full potential,” the 19-year-old concluded.
