“I can hardly wait to play here,” Blind himself added, ” We’re now entering the most important part of the season, where the titles are at stake – and a club like FC Bayern can win any trophy. The hunger for titles here at the club was crucial to my decision. I hope I can use my experience to help the team and will give everything for Bayern Munich.”
