Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich reveals he’s ready to play wherever he is needed to play, regardless of the possibility that it implies playing as a goalkeeper.
The German international rose to a noticeable player as a holding midfielder but has also featured at right-back and as a central defender for both the Bavarians and Germany national team.
The 22-year-old once expressed he prefers to play in the midfield, though if it implies he makes the starting XI he will happily take up another position.
Speaking To Kicker, Kimmich says: “The most important matter for me is not where I play, but that I play,” Kimmich, who scored an acrobatic late equaliser in Germany’s 1-1 friendly draw against Denmark last week and set up three goals in the 7-0 thumping of San Marino on Saturday.

“When I have to make a choice between playing and watching on from the sidelines, I always pick playing. I would happily play as goalkeeper, striker or winger, as long as I play. I would prefer any position over watching on from the bench.
“Both at Bayern and the national team, there are players who have been around a bit longer and have immense quality. There is always a risk that you do not get as much playing time as you would like.”
