Leon Goretzka says he is keen on getting even more influence and responsibility at Bayern München.

The 24-year-old feels he has grown following his move from Schalke 04 in 2018 and wants to continue his development.

When asked about his next step for 2020 in an interview published on the club's website, Goretzka responded:

"I think you can split that. With the team, that means above all getting further in the Champions League than last year. As FC Bayern, obviously we always have our sights on the double. For me personally, I can say that I've certainly not reached my peak. I've raised my level in my one and a half years at FC Bayern, and this process of learning and growing never stops in my eyes.

"I want to have even more influence on the game and take on more responsibility. When you move to FC Bayern, it takes a certain amount of time to get used to the extremely high requirements at this club," Goretzka explained.

Goretzka has made 14 appearances for Bayern this season, scoring twice and making two assists.
