Sarpreet Singh is looking forward to more success with Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich continued their domination in Germany by clinching the Bundesliga title last weekend. It was Die Roten’s eighth successive title and first under Hansi Flick, who became the first team manager at the start of November last year.
Flick got the team out of the rut and lead to the title by stitching a 20-game unbeaten run since mid-December. Along with getting results, Flick also gave young players opportunities at the highest level when the team was desperate to get victories.
Sarpreet Singh is one of the young players that has featured for Die Roten this season. The Kiwi joined the club last summer from Wellington Phoenix. He has largely featured for the reserves team, but also manage to muster two appearances for the first team.
Singh was part of the title celebrations on Saturday at Wolfsburg. In a Bundesliga interview (via TVNZ), Singh admitted that he is eager to enjoy more success at the club. The young forward also insisted that the environment at the German club is perfect for him to grow as a player.
“I am very fortunate and very blessed to be in this position and being given this opportunity where I am in an environment with the top team and I am always learning, I’m always growing, it’s an amazing feeling just being a part of the team and winning the title.”
“I hope this is the first of many but I know at the same time there is a lot more hard work to do in order to reach that.”

Niko Kovac had bright words to say about Singh at the start of the campaign. The Croatian manager insisted that he is ahead in development compared to other young players. Singh still has a long journey to complete in order to become a regular first-team player. His last performance against Freiburg showed that the young forward is unfazed by challenged at the top level.
Singh will be encouraged with the progress Joshua Zirkzee has made at the club in a short space of time. The Dutch forward has come up with important goals for the first team. His promising performances have been rewarded with a regular place in the matchday squad. Singh will be looking to emulate his path to the first team.
In Flick, the Kiwi has the right type of coach to develop into a top player. The German manager is not scared to throw young players in tight situations rather than playing it safe with senior players. Moreover, his astute man-management encourages players to do well and keeps them on their toes, helping them to give their best on the pitch.

Die Roten has a very good bunch of young players in the reserves team. These young players will be encouraged after the success achieved by Alphonso Davies and Joshua Zirkzee this season. The club always had players from their youth system in the successful first team, so one can hope that someone like Sarpreet Singh also becomes a vital player in the future.
