Désiré Segbe Azankpo already knows the way to Säbener Straße to FC Bayern very well.
The 29-year-old is said to have always driven Bayern’s top newcomer Sadio Mané to training in the first few weeksreports the “Bild newspaper“. In the last few days, however, it should have been noticed that instead of driving home afterwards, he was allowed to watch the secret training session alongside player manager Johannes Mösmang.
And as the attackers from Benin proudly announced on Instagram, he has now even signed a two-year contract with the record champions. “New challenge for the next two years.”
He posted a picture of the signing of the contract, as well as one in the Munich jersey in front of the club logo. “Happy and proud to be part of this great club,” he continued.
Segbe Azankpo planned for the second team
However, he should not be in the team under coach Julian Nagelsmann in the future. The attacker, who was under contract with USL Dunkerque in the third French division, now plays for Munich in the regional league.
Segbe Azankpo and Bayern star Sadio Mané are probably good friends
Bayern striker Sadio Mané should be particularly happy about the change of attacker – even if the two will not be on the pitch together.

The Bayern star and Segbe Azankpo have known each other for a long time. They met at the youth academy “Génération Foot”. In addition, both came to France for FC Metz in 2012. So now they’re back with the same club, albeit in different teams.
While Sadio Mané started, Segbe Azankpo was on the pitch for small clubs. Azankpo also plays for the Benin national team. He hasn’t had a club since June.
