Today, Leon Goretzka was officially presented as a Bayern München player at a press conference at the Säbener Strasse in München.

Among other things, Goretzka talked about his favourite position on the pitch - as a dynamic central midfielder.

"I prefer to play as a number 8 as that is where I'm strongest. But I'm willing to play in another position if the coach thinks that I can help," he said according to Bild.

Goretzka also said he believes that Niko Kovac has started out well as the club's new coach - although some players will have to get used to longer training sessions.

"The coach has had a very good start with the team. I haven't known him for very long, but we have performed his exercises in training. We're training a bit longer than many of us are used to," Goretzka said.

The 23-year-old midfielder has joined Bayern München on a free transfer from Schalke 04.
