Introducing himself as Bayern Munich latest signing, 23-year old English left-back Omar Richards, joining in from Reading, recalled some of his 2019 statements: “I remember getting fired from Fulham junior area, when I was 16. I didn't know where to play in the future. When I came to Reading FC and was signed there, it was a big moment in my career - I was able to carry on and hold on to my dream.

Eamonn Dolan, Reading youth area head, believed in me. I lost a lot of confidence after I was released, and he gave it back to me and helped me get to where I am today. I'm still trying to attack like I did back then, but I've always been able to defend pretty well. I think the position suits me".

Inspiring himself to David Silva, before being repositioned on the defence line, Bayern new blood is also suitable as a wingback, as well as a wide midfielder.
