FC Bayern, News: Sanches talks about a difficult FCB time
Renato Sanches spoke about his difficult time at Bayern. In conversation with the magazine view the Portuguese admitted that he had imagined the jump from Benfica to the German record champions to be easier.
“When I went there alone, I was 18 and I thought I was ready to live alone and face this challenge, but now I know I wasn’t. That’s what made me grow up,” Sanches said .
In retrospect, the move to a top European club came too early for him. “They wanted me so much. When such a club wants you, it’s impossible to say no. My decision for Bayern was right, but I made it too early. I was lonely, injured myself in the first training session and I felt not mentally well,” the 25-year-old continued.
This is one of the reasons why he would not have been able to constantly perform in FCB dress: “I didn’t want to feel the pressure and feel good, but I couldn’t do it. If you feel pressured, you can’t perform well . That’s when I realized that if I’m not happy, it affects my level of play.”
Sanches moved from Benfica to FC Bayern in 2016. In three years, however, he was never able to assert himself with the Munich side, and even an interim loan to Swansea City did not bring the desired success.

FC Bayern, News: Rummenigge comments on DFB posts
For Bayern’s long-standing CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, it was “natural to comply with Bernd Neuendorf’s and Aki Watzke’s request to help.
