Corentin Tolisso in conversation with France Football: “I adhered to the German mentality”
Since last summer, the former midfielder of Lyon has been immersed with a lot of desire and determination in his new adventure at Bayern Munich. Even if everything is not easy and if he faces a formidable competition, he intends to register in the long term in Bavaria. Extracts from his interview in France Football.Corentin Tolisso in conversation with France Football: "I adhered to the German mentality"

On his report to Bayern …
“I have always followed this club. I was particularly fond of Michael Ballack (note: he played at Bayern from 2002 to 2006), a complete player who liked to go from one surface to another, with a nice shot from both feet. It inspired me a lot (…) People are close to each other. It translates into the field, where there is true solidarity and where nothing is let go. Bayern is a huge club that leaves nothing to chance. For example, how each game is thoroughly prepared in the locker room. We all know what to do. It is extremely rigorous. I have never seen a teammate arrive late for training. Everything is square. ”
On German culture …
“Where I have trouble is the meals and especially the breakfast. Here it is rather salty with cold cuts (including white sausages), cheese, etc. At this level, I’m French because I start my day with cereals, hot chocolate and toast. Some teammates were a little shocked when they saw me at work the first time (…) The Germans always know what they must do and not do, like being on time at work and giving themselves every day thoroughly. And I love being always 100%. I immediately adhered to this mentality. ”
On the competition at Bayern …
“By signing at Bayern, I knew that the competition would be formidable, that I would not play every game in full. The coach (Carlo Ancelotti) and the assistant coach (Willy Sagnol) who made me come are no longer there, but I have the confidence of the new coach (Jupp Heynckes), I dispute many meetings. It is true that I find myself more often on the bench than Lyon, but I learn a lot every day. When I have my chance, I think to grab it by delivering good benefits. I have the feeling to justify his confidence. With seven goals and five assists in all competitions, I can be proud of my performance. ”
On Jupp Heynckes …
“With Heynckes, I had to prove myself and show that I deserved to play. But it’s going very well with him (…) I had never worked with him before, but I know he took Bayern to the triplet Cup-Championship-Champions League (in 2013). The coach is someone of right who makes his choices and assumes them. He has a high level experience like few coaches. He makes sure to involve everyone. And since he arrived, his record is almost perfect. He’s a great technician. ”
