Bayern Munich left-back Lucas Hernandez has said that the Bavarians are a winning machine and their habit for silverware was one of the crucial reasons why he decided to join them. The Frenchman joined the German giants from Atletico Madrid in an £80m deal this summer.
Hernandez also revealed that he moved to Bayern in order to move out of his comfort zone and test himself on a higher level. He said,
“It was the right moment for me to make a change, to try something different – a new city, a new culture, a new country,” he explained. “Bayern was perfectly suited to my profile, my mentality and my ambitions. The club management and players told me I would be joining a family, and it’s true. Bayern are a historic club. I’ve already got a decent amount of experience and a handy-looking CV, but I’m a big competitor and I want to win even more titles. Bayern are a winning machine, so it was perfect for me. I can really improve here.”
“I’ve never really put myself under pressure, but I’m aware of the effort Bayern went to in order to sign me,” he admitted. “That’s why I don’t want to disappoint the club or the supporters. It’s my job to work hard and prove myself worthy of their trust. I always give everything, in games or in training.”
Bayern Munich will resume their Bundesliga campaign when they meet Augsburg this week.
