FC Bayern München’s versatile and in-form Joshua Kimmich has admitted he partly uses Hollywood superstar, Arnold Schwarzenegger, as inspiration to continue his somewhat unexpected scoring form.
The 21-year-old has hit five goals for Bayern in 2016/17 and trails only the prolific Robert Lewandowski in the club’s scoring charts.
The player added a fifth goal to his tally with a strike in Bayern’s 1-1 draw with Koln on Saturday. In addition, Kimmich’s run is all the more surprising in that he is considered more of a centre-back or a defensive midfielder.
Nonetheless, the Rottweil-born star expressed delight at his current form, and gave credit to Schwarzenegger for continuing to inspire him.
The actor and former politician was in attendance at the Allianz Arena during the draw with the Billy Goats.
Kimmich told the club’s official website: “I’m getting better at judging the situations when I can get forward. We’d already had two situations where I was really annoyed with myself for not continuing a run.
“I could definitely have scored more but ‘I’ll be back!’ (in reference to Schwarzenegger’s most famous line in the Terminator series of movies).”
