The midfielder has hopes to return and establish himself with German champs after his loan deal with Nurnberg in 2. Bundesliga ends.

Sarpreet Singh wants to show Bayern Munich that he has all the qualities needed to make it for the European champs. Singh, who is only 21-years-old, impressed for New Zealand in 2019 at the Under-20 World Cup, and shortly after the German champs came calling.

Like most younger players when they are signed by big teams, first-team opportunities are hard to come by and that was the case with Singh and he spent the majority of the 2019/20 season at their feeder club before moving to Nurnberg on a loan deal.

Speaking to Goal and Spox, Singh said he hopes he can have a chance to show Hansi Flick his capabilities when he returns.

“I want to return to Bayern as a better player in the summer and fight for a regular place,” he said.

“I believe in asserting myself at FC Bayern. This is my plan. But you can never make serious predictions in football. Who knows, maybe I’ll stay in Nuremberg too.

 

“I haven’t spoken to Hansi [Flick] since the summer, but I’m in close contact with the FC Bayern scouts. They follow my games very closely, give me feedback on my performance and show me where I can improve. This is very important to me.

 “In the summer I exchanged ideas with Hansi about my situation and future almost every other day. He looks after the whole team, but especially the young players like me. I am very grateful to him for that… He advised me directly to take the chance. “Match practice is the most important thing at my age. And it is naturally not that easy to get from the professionals at FC Bayern.

Moving to such a big club at a young age was a shock to the system and luckily for Singh, a club veteran who had a helping hand in making him feel settled.

 

“Thomas Müller was the first player on the professional team I had contact with,” he added. 

“He approached me and asked where I come from and how I was doing. Müller was the greatest help with the integration, but everyone else also made sure that I felt welcome very quickly.

“During my first few weeks in Munich, I also spent a lot of time with my agent, a scout from FC Bayern and the English-speaking guys from the reserve like Chris Richards.”
