Bayern Munich Sign Australian Teenager Irankunda

Bayern Munich confirmed the signing of 17-year-old Nestory Irankunda, a rising talent in Australian football, on Wednesday.


The 18-year-old attacker will join Bayern from Adelaide United on a long-term contract on July 1 next year.


“Nestory is an extremely quick winger, a strong dribbler and finisher with good drive towards goal,” Bayern’s director of youth development Jochen Sauer said.


“We’re convinced by his potential and that he will take the next steps with us.”


Irankunda, who was born in a Tanzanian refugee camp after his parents fled conflict in Burundi, has already represented Australia at the Under-17 level.


In March, he trained with the Socceroos, the senior national team, and was named to the squad for games against Colombia and Ecuador, but he did not play in either.
