What a summer! It felt great to finally be back home in Munich, but I’ll never forget the last couple of months.. Between the US national team training camp, the World Cup in Brazil and the US Tour it was a period I’ll never forget. Don’t get me wrong, I really like traveling and wouldn’t miss a single day of this exciting summer, but there is no place like home.
Overall, the tour was a lot of fun but it was hard work as well. We had a tough schedule, a lot of intensive training sessions, events with sponsors and so on. But we had a great time overall as a team. The training conditions were fantastic and the interest in soccer was truly amazing. You can definitely tell that the sport is growing fast in the US from the tour.
It wasn’t the first time I’ve experienced the country’s passion for soccer either. I saw and felt it during my time with the US national team as well. It was great to see all the Americans going crazy over the sport then like they do in Europe and it was fantastic to see that happen again with Bayern Munich, a German club. To experience that and get to meet some of the fans was simply awesome!
Honestly, every day in America was special. Bayern really did a great job planning the tour. One of the biggest highlights for me personally, though, was New York. It’s just such a cool city! There are millions of people and there is nothing you can’t find or do in that city. I like the busy atmosphere and all the skyscrapers. We took part in a boat trip and had a fantastic view of the city skyline. Portland was a bit smaller and easier to get around. In comparison, there seemed to be more interest in soccer in Portland than New York, but both were great experiences.
