Mein Weg in die Startelf

How I Made it Into the Starting Eleven

Thomas Müller tells his story! The success story for beginning readers.

For ten-year-old Thomas Müller, it’s a dream come true: he’s been signed by the great FC Bayern München. But every player at the club is a top talent, so at first Thomas only ever finds himself sitting on the reserve bench. His teammate Martin advises him never to give up, and so Thomas trains even harder – and finally gets his chance.
