Marc Roca was presented this Tuesday as a new Bayern Munich player. In his first press conference in the Bavarian capital, the former Espanyol revealed that his great idol on the pitch is, precisely, a former Bayern midfielder and also spoke about the following topics:
Sensations: “I am very happy to be here. It is a great opportunity to learn from the best and to grow as a footballer. I promise to give my best with confidence, effort and work.”
First game on Thursday against Düren: “I really want to start playing now. It doesn't matter that the team is in the fifth division, we defend the Bayern Munich jersey and we have to give it our all.”
Idols: “I have many players that I admire, one of them is Xabi Alonso, a player who also played here. I have been paying attention to him and his game for a long time, trying to learn as much as I can. I think I am a player with a good mentality, wanting to learn and I hope to take advantage of the great opportunity that Bayern gave me.
8-2 against Barcelona: “We know that there is a great rivalry between Barcelona and Espanyol. Obviously, I supported Bayern and I was very happy afterwards, although it is clear that the result so large was surprising for everyone. The superiority they showed on the field was something impressive of watch”.
Hasan Salihamidzic, the club's sporting director and key in his signing, described Marc Roca in the following words: “I already liked Marc when we had our first conversations back in 2019. In that same year, he was proclaimed European champion with the Spanish Under-21s. His ability as a footballer, especially his technique, intelligence and verticality, will enrich us. He is a good kid and we will give him the opportunity to continue improving. “
