Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on why he is prepared to warm the Bayern Munich bench

Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has revealed the real reason behind the move to Bayern Munich despite the current force that is Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski easily established himself as Bayern's top goalscorer with 55 goals across all competitions while on his way to being a club legend.

The Poland international has already netted five goals in the ongoing campaign and Choupo-Moting affirms that he is prepared to warm the bench.

"There were conversations with the coach, he made it clear to me that he would be happy if I came. We are not talking about a major role," he said.

"Everyone knows that at Bayern there is Lewandowski at the forefront. But each player is important in the project".

Paris Saint-Germain wanted Choupo-Moting to remain in France for yet another season but Choupo-Moting insists that he could not let the opportunity pass him by to join the Bundesliga giants.

"Paris wanted me to stay, but I turned them down. There were some interesting offers. My choice was made as soon as Bayern contacted my agents," he continued.

"It wasn't a shock they came in for me, but it's a huge honour. 

"They're the Champions League holders, the biggest team in Germany. It's a great league. Munich is a beautiful city. I am super happy."
