Kimmich: “I still get goose bumps”

Despite his first 23 years, Joshua Kimmich can look back on an impressive career from the football league FC Bavaria. Three championships and a DFB Cup victory are among other things in the life of the Defensiv all-rounder.

But Kimmich particularly likes to remember a certain highlight of his career.” My goals against Real were special moments that I will not forget in my life,”the Bavarian professional said to”Sport 1″and added:”If I see the pictures today, I still get goose bumps. Even if it was not enough at the end.”

In the example of last season’s Champions League semi-finals against Real Madrid (1:2), Kimmich scored the lead for Munich. The national player also started the catch-up with a goal in reverse (2:2). In the end, however, it was not enough for him to move on.

Kimmich matured so quickly to become an indispensable tribal player of the record master, he did not believe himself. For me personally it was important to see that I can compete on the world-class level.”

Kimmich was able to prove this just under former coach Jupp Heynckes.” I grew up in the sport phase because I was in a different position. It was my goal to be on the field in the important games. This I have achieved,”said the defender.

Kimmich changed 2015 from RB Leipzig to FC Bavaria Munich. For the record champion, the 23-year-old contested until now 149 games, scored 16 goals and prepared 31 hits.
