Wood targeting Bundesliga promotion with 1860 Munich

Bobby Wood is determined to help 1860 Munich gain promotion back to the German Bundesliga this season.

The 20-year old Hawaiian striker is back in the first-team setup at the Allianz Arena after getting over knee surgery and is keen to do everything he can to help Die Lowen, placed sixth on the second tier table, push for a top flight return.

"We want that (promotion playoff) spot," he told MLSsoccer.com.

"Five points can be switched in two weeks, so that's nothing. We just need to keep our heads down and be consistent.

"We're in a big city, our stadium is one of the best stadiums in Germany. As a club, it would be nice to be back up in the first division, but we have to make it happen."

And in regard to his own personal situation, Wood is looking to prove himself after signing a deal which keeps him at the club until 2016.

"My goal when I came here was to have this opportunity, so it feels really good," he said.

"It's the first step to start everything, so I just have to keep doing what I'm doing."
