MUNICH – Born in Munich, Angelo Stiller came to Bayern Munich at the age of nine and worked on Säbener Strasse for eleven years for his big dream of breaking through the professionals. But in the end, nothing came of it.
When he was more hopeful than ever for a breakthrough with the Munich professionals in the 2020/21 season, the planning of the record champions thwarted his plans. With Marc Rocca and Thiago Dantas, the Munich team brought in two midfielders and thus two rivals for Stiller. “Of course I was shocked, that was a slap in the face,” the Hoffenheim player said today of the defining moment when Stiller’s decision to say goodbye solidified.
Stiller: ‘You didn’t get a real chance’ at Bayern
Not least due to additional opponents in the battle of tasks, Stiller often lost in terms of game minutes in the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
“I never got a chance,” said Stiller, summarizing his last season at Bayern Munich, in which he was only allowed to play three times.
Already ten matches in the German league for Hoffenheim
Therefore, Bayern officials could no longer convince the disappointed talent to extend the contract sought by the club. “There was a lot of sadness at first,” Stiller said as he left Munich and then moved to Kraichgau.
At TSG, Stiller met his former Bayern Munich sponsor Sebastian Hoeness as coach. Under the son of former Bundesliga top scorer Dieter Hoeness, Stiller became the third division champion with Bayern’s amateurs in the 2019/20 season. So far, Stiller has participated in ten Bundesliga matches with Hoffenheim.
