Leverkusen The eight million euro entry from Berlin wants to lead Leverkusen with his mindset. It is not true that he avoided playing only at the start of the league due to immediate action under Bayer Cross, he says.
The 1-1 draw between Union Berlin and Bayer 04 was seen as a Copenhagen player by Robert Andrich. He has been working as a professional at the factory club since Monday, following his first training session with the team on Tuesday. In a media round on Thursday, the 26-year-old midfielder talked about his action, career plans and No.8. About Andrich. . .
. . His first impression of the club and the team: “The first few days were very positive. Of course you have to remember a lot of new names and faces at the beginning, but it’s normal. I got a good reception and training is good. . “
. . . Differences between Gerardo Zion and Urs Fisher: “I’m only finished three units with the team, so it’s difficult to make a comparison. The coach tries to put the players together well. It’s not easy in different languages, but he’s well versed in it. “
. . . His Grandstand seat at 1: 1 on Saturday: “Nothing has been fixed yet. It has nothing to do with the fact that I did not play and I have some problems from the cup game. We played against Leverkusen and only played a role in negotiating with the club. Overall, this is a very difficult situation for me, but for both clubs. Whatever decision is made – it will always be wrong. I do not expect this to happen so quickly in the end. “
. . His five-year contract with the Works Club: “I did not complain. At first it was about four years, then it grew in that direction. It shows that a certain amount of confidence has been placed in me.”
. . It is true that he took the number 8 from Lars Bender: “Of course you see which player wore the number in front of you. I know Lars Bender had an incredible career here, but don’t try to put too much pressure on me because of that. I’m trying to fill the number on my way, and I hope to succeed. “
. . .The qualities he brings: “The meaning of the mood certainly plays a role. The fact that I can be ‘rowdy’ or ‘bastard’ on the pitch is sometimes negatively illustrated. I saw a lot of yellow cards in my first year at the union, there were fewer last season. I think I’m already trying to get everyone loaded. There’s definitely room for improvement, but we can manage it. “
. . His career plans: “I always had the goal of becoming a Bundesliga player. Time in Dresden was not easy for me – to get promoted, but still to switch to the third division… I already had some bad thoughts. When I got to the first division, I noticed that I could do a little more than I did playing. It makes sense for me to take it to the next level within this league. “
. . . His thoughts when asked Leverkusen’s interest: “Of course I was happy. As a player, where do you think your career will take you? You see the circumstances in the clubs, how much space is filled, what players are there, how old they are and what their contract status is. I have always loved Leverkusen with the successful offensive football they play. So I was relatively very impressed at the beginning. “
. . Ambitions – Personally and with Bayer 04: “Leverkusen are one of the four or five leading clubs in the Bundesliga. With the exception of Bayern, they are approximately the same. As far as club technology is concerned, I probably will not have any more increases. I would never have thought of coming to areas like this so quickly, but I’m already made a plan for my career with my consultant. “
