FC Bayern star looks back on “difficult phase of the season”.

Homegrown Josip Stanisic drew mixed conclusions after his first season with the FC Bayern pros.

“In the beginning I benefited from the fact that Benji Pavard was injured. It actually went perfectly for me, I was invited to the national team. Then I got Corona and shortly afterwards the muscle injury. It came out of nowhere and kept me busy because it was going so well until then,” said Stanisic in a “kicker” interview.

The 22-year-old explained: “The three-month break was bitter, I had to prove myself again. I was fit again when the difficult phase of the season came with difficult games, had to be patient and wait for my chance. I’m with the beginning and the end I’m happy.”

“There’s always competition at FC Bayern”

All in all, Stanisic played 17 competitive games for FC Bayern in 2021/2022.

He also scored his first Bundesliga goal on matchday 34 in a 2-2 away win over VfL Wolfsburg. A short time later, the youngster showed a strong performance in the kit of the Croatian national team in the 1-0 win against France and superstar Kylian Mbappé. “The last few games were definitely an encouragement and a happy ending,” said Stanisic.

Stanisic is relaxed about the new competitive situation at Bayern Munich due to the signing of Noussair Mazraoui for right-back. “There’s always competition at FC Bayern, I don’t worry about that. I’ll do my best, wait for my chance and want to take it when it comes. I’m sure I’ll get my seasons with the program.”

FC Bayern: That’s what Josip Stanisic says about Sadio Mané

Mazraoui is “a good player, a bit more offensive than I am,” said Stanisic, who can play not only as a right-back but also on the left or in the center of defence.

This versatility is “a blessing, a positive aspect” for him, the native of Munich clarified. “It helps me as a young player that I can play several positions. I want as much playing time as possible, the position is secondary at first.”

When asked about new star signing Sadio Mané, Stanisic became enthusiastic: “A very good transfer and a player who will help us. As an opponent, he is not so easy to defend, so I am happy that I will play with him and not against him . From what I’ve heard, he doesn’t like defeat at all and always wants to win. That suits us at Bayern.”
