Fulham management excited by Ronny Minkwitz potential
Fulham management are excited by the prospects of German midfielder Ronny Minkwitz.
Minkwitz has only been at the Club for five months, but the talented midfielder has already caused quite a stir.
The 16-year-old had spent two seasons as a junior player in the highly-regarded Stuttgart youth system, with coaches tipping him for a bright future at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
"Stuttgart were my home club and one with an excellent reputation for producing young players for the first team," he explained to fulhamfc.com. "It would have been easy for me to stay, but the move to Fulham was too good to turn down.
"I know I am young, but I wanted to experience life in another country. I wanted something new, something that would present experiences that I could learn from.
"It was difficult at first, but that was mainly as a result of having to sort out things like my National Insurance and bank details. But once that was all sorted, it has proved a very easy move for me.
"Sure, there are times when I miss my family and friends and, to me, Stuttgart is the nicest place in the world. But in football I think it is important to step away from your comfort zone.
"I have no regrets about the decision I have made at all, this is a fantastic club and one that has made me feel very comfortable. I am very happy in England."
