Nils Petersen on the differences between Bayern and Bremen
“It’s more relaxed here during the training,” he says and refers to the lower pressure: “a young team forgives mistakes. That’s different in Munich. The level there is so high, it couldn’t get any higher, you’re not allowed mistakes. At the end, star players sit on the bench too.” The bench is hard. The preseason training however is not. At least not as hard as in Bremen, says Petersen: “we didn’t train that much at Bayern. 3 times a day like we do here - I’ve never experienced that there. At Bayern, we didn’t have to get up before 9am either.” Now, his alarm rings at 7am. Shortly after, he’s at the running track. At 10:30am, the first session on the pitch follows, at 5:30pm the second.
In Nils Petersen news, the striker has extended his contract with Bayern to 2015 and will move to Werder Bremen on loan for the 2012-13 season. Good luck this season, Nils. May he score many goals, but none against us.
Coming in at #25 is Nils Petersen, one of Bayern’s newest acquisitions. The man signed for Bayern in May 2011 and the powerful #9 was slapped on his back. While he may not have made much of an impact on the pitch, he did manage to score 4 goals in 494 minutes. He makes Rekordmeister’s list for his contribution to the FCB Kids Club and for all the pizzas he delivered during his time on the bench.
There was a question in a reblog about why Kroos (and Nils) know Russian. This is because of where they grew up! Both were born in East Germany. Thomas Müller confirmed in an interview last year that Kroos learned Russian while in school.
