Bayern recruited Subtizer for Bose on his return to Leipzig.



Bayern Munich’s new signing Marcel Subtzer is enjoying the return of former club RB Leipzig on Saturday, but he expects a great reception for the Bundesliga champions on their debut.

Leipzig made Byron runner-up last season and Saturday’s league match at Red Bull Arena is the first opportunity for both clubs to drop the marker.

Leipzig captain Subtzer rejoined Bayern last week with coach Julian Naglesman and defender Dwight Apimecano, both of whom have moved to Munich this season.

After being rejected by Byron as a 14-year-old schoolboy, Subtzer’s goal is to persuade Naglasman to make the midfield despite a rivalry with German stars Joshua Kemich and Leon Gortzka.

“I know there is a lot of quality in my position. I would be ready if I had the chance to play,” Subtzer said on Thursday, adding that an editor had dealt with the tension.

He acknowledged that Bayern’s start in Leipzig could be a hot opportunity.

“I don’t know what kind of reception to expect,” he said.

“I had a good time in Leipzig for six years, working from the second Bundesliga to the Champions League. I became a leader and managed to give something back to the club.

“I’m looking forward to going back on Saturday, even if it’s unstable.”

The 27-year-old Austrian has shown Bayern ways to beat Leipzig, who have beaten Mainz and early leader Wolfsburg 4-0 at Stuttgart this season.

“Finally, I had four weeks of pre-season and was there for the first few games, so of course I have insider information,” said Subtzer.

“I’ve had a bit of an exchange with my video analysts and coaches about what we need to see.”

Matt Kevin Campbell, a former Leipzig flatmate of Subtzer, says that if the pair face each other, no quarter will be asked or given.

“In 90 minutes we will forget our friendship,” the Leipzig midfielder said. “Everyone wants to get points for their team – then we’re partners again.”

Campbell hopes that Leipzig fans will save Subtzer, Apimecano and Naglasman from a hostile reception. “I hope they don’t murmur because they have done so much for the club.”

Leipzig is home to Leverkusen Dortmund, ahead of host Byron, whose star striker Earling Holland scored a hat-trick for Norway against Gibraltar on Tuesday, ending the international break with five goals.

Dortmund defender Matt Hummels and captain Marco Reus are fit after recovering from a hamstring injury, but American teenager Giovanni Reina will be sidelined until October after injuring a hamstring on international duty.

Wolfsburg, the only team with an excellent record, will stay on top if they win on Saturday at Greuther Forth, who have one point from their first three games.

The 25-year-old was blown away by his club’s fans before the international break for sub-par performances, but Bayern returned from a series of strong displays for Germany during the World Cup qualifiers.

Sai scored the opening goal and then beat Iceland 4-0 on Wednesday to beat Armenia last Sunday.

“The boy is ready for some football,” said Byron team-mate Joshua Kammich after Sai’s brilliant outing in Reykjavik.

“I think he will build it with us at FC Bayern.”

229 – Sabzizar builds for RB Leipzig, scoring 52 goals in all competitions since his debut in 2015.

The Netherlands have scored in eight games for Dortmund and Norway this season.

1 – RB Leap Zig win in 12 games against Byron since the first Bundesliga season of the Saxony club in 2016/17.
