Olise has overcome the harsh Premier League to join Bayern

It can be said that Michael Olise has come a long way before reaching his dream of joining a giant club like Bayern Munich.

The 22-year-old has officially joined the Allianz Arena team, after rejecting offers from a series of Premier League giants such as Chelsea and Manchester United. This may not surprise those who have followed him for the past few years.

However, to achieve the success he has today, the former player of Crystal Palace and Reading had to go through many challenges and a high-intensity and non-stop training process. Therefore, joining Bayern is like a worthy reward for him.

Michael Olise showed his talent early on when he was recruited by the academies of top English clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. However, the career of this player with dual British and French nationality was not associated with the first team of the above mentioned teams.

Olise has arrived at Bayern…

In 2017, finding it difficult to compete at Man City, Olise, then 16 years old, decided to join Reading U18, and was promoted to the Reading first team just 1 year later. Here, he shone brightly and was named the best young player of the 2020/21 Championship season.

Seeing his talent, Crystal Palace knocked on Reading’s door and made an offer worth 9.3 million euros to bring Olise to Selhurst Park in the summer of 2021. Many people were worried that the harsh Premier League environment would make it difficult for the striker born in 2001, but Olise proved otherwise.

Since moving to Palace, the Frenchman has established himself as one of the Premier League’s most prominent right-wingers. He has made a total of 82 appearances in the top flight, scoring 14 goals and providing 22 assists.

…after completing his journey in the Premier League.

Said Aigoun, who was part of Patrick Vieira’s coaching staff during Michael Olise’s first two seasons at Crystal Palace, once said: “Michael spent a lot of time practising his movements in situations he might encounter in a match. In every training session, he wаnted to win.”

Many Selhurst Park supporters even claim that Olise is the best player to ever play for the club, ahead of the equally impressive Eberechi Eze, who is playing for England at EURO 2024. All of the above shows that the talent and determination of this 22-year-old star is truly enormous.

Now Michael Olise’s career has been raised to a new level. Being recruited by Bayern Munich is the dream of every professional player, because here they will have many opportunities to win titles. What is special is that Olise will reunite with Jamal Musiala – a friend from Chelsea academy.
