Ivan Perisic has admitted he is optimistic about his chances of Bayern Munich signing him up on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
“I think that it is possible. Everything’s positive in Munich so far, both in private and in terms of football. I have a one-year loan contract plus option to purchase. I’m just taking it step by step, from day to day. Let’s see,” he told the Bavarian club’s official website.
“I think the level in the Bundesliga is even higher now than four yours ago. Many good players are here, the tempo is even higher now, and the stadiums are always full anyway.”
He also spoke on the people in the media who spoke down of him when he arrived at Bayern due to his age.
“Unfortunately I’ve never had very good ties to the media. I just don’t like to see my face in the newspaper every day, that’s not my cup of tea, but a footballer who thinks like me will never muster much support.
“When I joined Bayern, people said, he’s already 30, he can’t be so fresh any more. But I don’t care. The pitch is the only place where I give answers. That’s the only place where it counts.”
