Rudy: I’m happy to have been underrated

Sebastian Rudy says he is thrilled with his start to life at Bayern Munich following his switch from 1899 Hoffenheim.

The 27-year-old former Stuttgart right-back has excelled in his short time with the German champions and revealed he is settling in well.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Rudy said: “I feel really good. I didn’t expect to get such a great reception. It’s been brilliant from the start. The team have made it easy for me. I already knew lots of my team-mates from playing with Germany. That’s why I didn’t really need a lot of time to settle in.”

He added: “I think I’ve settled in well. But I know there’s more to do. Just the quality of the training sessions help to improve. I want to find out what my limits are and how far I can go. FC Bayern is the best place for me to find out.

“I think FC Bayern brought me in because of the way I play. So I don’t want to change that much. Of course, I have to fit into the team and absorb technical changes. But that doesn’t affect my playing style.”

Rudy admitted that he may have been underrated – before puling on a Bayern shirt.

He explained: “When you join without a transfer fee and you’re also a rather quiet person then that could be the case. But I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I’d rather be underrated rather than overrated. That means I can take my time settling in and show what I can do.”
