Football 8 January 2019 18:25 GMT
Canadian International and newbie at Bayern Munich Alphonso Davies revealed that he was nervous training with the first team.
“It is a great honour to play for this big club and to be on the pitch with the other players,” Davies told Bayern’s official website.
“I want to do my best in every training session and if I get the chance then I hope I can take it.”
The Canadian player of the year also explained his reasons for choosing his squad number – 19 – at his new club.
“It’s the year I’m eligible to play for this amazing club,” he said.
“When you see the lads in real life or play alongside them then you do get a bit nervous,” he added.
“I want to learn from experienced players.”
Before he can be fully integrated into the squad, however, Davies faces the prospect of an initiation song in front of his new team-mates.
“Thiago told me about it,” Davies explained.
“I’ll have to find the right song.”
