Bayern wants more academy players in the first team. Is it a chance for the CEE Cup Star?
The regional newspaper Abendzeitung reported a list of talents from Bayern Munich, who would soon be able to get into the A-Team. The local newspaper responded to the president Uli Hoenesse's statement, who said that within three years he would want in the first team two or three players reared by his own academy. Among the eight biggest promises, the Bavarian newspaper also chose Joshua Zirkzee, whom we've seen at last year's CEE Cup.

The Dutch striker arrived in Prague with Everton, at that time on a test from Feyenoord Rotterdam. Still during the tournament he left for another examination for Bayern Munich and eventually signed the contract.
In the German Grand Club he now plays the Youth League and the Bundesliga youth. During the summer he also had the first chance to play in the first team and in the match against Paris Saint-Germain he also scored a goal. Abendzeitung presents Zirkzee as a striker with great technique.
In addition to Zirkzee, also appear in the list the left back Jonathan Meier, the Swedish wing Alex Timossi Andersson, the offensive allrounder Oliver Batista Meier, the “South Korean Robben” Woo-yeong Jeong, the goalie Christian Früchtl and the stopper Josip Stanisic.
