The New Zealand rising star Sarpreet Singh has made a surprising and impressive move this year after a very good season at Wellington Phoenix; the 20-year old midfielder received an irrecusable offer from the German football giants Bayern FC and went to play in the country that best New Zealand player of history – Wynton Rufer – had his best years.
Despite being contracted to play in the Bayern II that plays in the German football third tier, Singh made his preseason with the first team of Bayern in United States and played against giants of European football in friendly matches – impressing the coach Niko Kovac, that was in charge of Bayern in that time. These good performances of the ex-Wellington Phoenix made him to be called up for the first team in the German Super Cup match between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund. The New Zealander did not make his debut staying only in bench.
With the bad results had by the Croatian coach Niko Kovac, the Bayern Munich direction decided to fire the coach and changes are already made in the team after the departure of the former Croatian international. The club decided to put in charge the coach Hansi Flick in interim basis and the coach called up for his team four players from Bayern II, including the New Zealand international. “We’re convinced that these boys will develop in the best way if they train with the best players. In our first-team, they have the conditions to do that“, said the new interim coach of Bayern FC.
Now finally the New Zealander, that recent played two friendly games with the All Whites and scored a brace in a match of 3.Liga for Bayern Munich II, will have a new chance to play his first competitive match for Bayern and turn into the first New Zealand player to play competitively for a German club in the first two tiers since Marco Rojas in 2014/15 season.
