Dante delighted about Bayern switch

28 April 2012 11:25

Borussia Monchengladbach defender Dante said he is excited to move to Bayern Munich, adding he has always wanted to play for a big club.

The Brazilian will leave 'Gladbach to join the Bavarians in the off-season's transfer window after the deal was confirmed this week, despite their best efforts to hold on to him.

"Since I have been at Borussia, I've always said what my goals are. Bayern Munich is one of those goals - I have always wanted to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told Express.

"I am very happy that the move will happen. I'm at an age where I have to accept such an offer. This is my last chance to achieve something great.

"It's not easy to leave a club where you feel so comfortable.

"I've had three-and-a-half great years at Gladbach. Borussia have really opened the door to the Bundesliga. My son was born here. It is not just a city, leaving a club where you feel so comfortable, like I do with Borussia."

But the former Standard Liege centre-back is under no illusions of the challenge he now has undertaken at the Allianz Arena.

"I do not think any player who signs a contract with Bayern is so naive as to believe that he has a safe, regular place," he said.

"I must show my quality every day. This is the case with every big club, whether it is Barcelona, Milan, Real Madrid and elsewhere."

Dante's contract with Monchengladbach ran until the summer of 2014, but he had a 4.7-million-euro buy-out clause in his agreement with the Borussia-Park outfit.
