Transferred from RB Leipzig to Bayern Munich in exchange for a check for 42.5 million euros this summer, Dayot Upamecano (22) is making a very convincing debut with Rekordmeister. The French international (3 caps, 1 goal) has already established himself as an important element of the collective led by Julian Nagelsmann, his former coach in Leipzig. If the main interested party recently confided in his first successful steps, his compatriot, Lucas Hernandez, said all the good he thought of his new club teammate.
“I knew him in selection. He is a very great player, a very great defender. He had a very different adaptation time from mine. He already knew the coach, the automatics, what he expects from him … He adapted very quickly, he’s a very pleasant, very, very nice person, he’s a huge player. Defensively, he brings us a lot ”, confided a Hernandez all smiles and very happy to be able to count on Upamecano from now on, at the microphone of bein Sports.
