"It gives you goosebumps"

Maxi Kleber and Nihad Djedovic had never spoken in front of 70,000 spectators before. Ahead of last night’s Audi Cup clash between FC Bayern and Real Madrid, the duo spoke to announcer Stephan Lehmann about the atmosphere and the upcoming basketball season.

“It’s a great feeling to speak to so many people from down here. I’ve got goosebumps,” explained Djedovic. Djedovic has visited the Allianz Arena a number of times over the past two years, but it was the first time that new signing Maxi Kleber had stepped foot inside a football stadium. The 2.07m Forward seemed to enjoy his first visit.

FCBB CEO Marko Pesic dreams of hosting a basketball game in the Allianz Arena, and Kleber seemed enthralled by the idea. “It would be incredible to take to the caught in front of 70,000 people.” Djedovic then went on to explain a bit more about his summer: “I arrived in Munich yesterday and I’m just getting ready for pre-season.” Kleber is currently nursing a knock but told the fans that he “expects to be fully fit for the start of the new campaign.”

FCBB get their season under way on Friday, October 2nd (20:15 CEST) against the EWE Baskets Oldenburg in the Audi Dome.
