Ivan Perisic says he is raring to go for Bayern Munich thanks to the ‘great preparation’ he received at Inter over the summer.
Perisic’s Inter career was effectively ended by Antonio Conte, who publicly discarded him as an option for his 3-5-2 formation.
Despite that, the winger had only praise for the Coach’s work ethic during his official unveiling as a Bayern player.
“I came here to be part of the team and play,” began the 30-year-old.
“There will be lots of games, so everyone will need to be at their best. When Bayern Munich called me, I didn’t give it much thought.
“When a club like them call you, you can’t think for too long. I want to do my best here and be very successful. I’m happy to be here in Munich.
“Last season was very difficult, after the World Cup Final I had only a few days to recover.
“When I returned to Milan I was practically thrown into playing official matches, so I had a series of ups and downs.
“I think that’s normal. When you go all the way at a World Cup, the following season becomes difficult.
“However, I’ve had great preparation with Inter this time around, especially with the new Coach. Antonio Conte is someone who works hard.
“During the summer I like to play other sports, but the important thing is to be ready and in the right shape early in the season.
“It’s important to work hard, even before and after training. I’ve had good preparation and I’m in good shape for Bayern Munich.”
