Choupo-Moting named man of the match on Bayern Munich debut

Eric Choupo-Moting has been named the man of the match on his Bayern Munich debut against Duren in Thursday’s DFB Pokal game.

The Cameroonian striker scored twice in his first game for Bayern since moving from Paris Saint-Germain in their 3-0 win over Duren in the DFB Pokal.

The centre-forward opened the scoring after a fine assist from Senegalese attacker Bouna Sarr before grabbing his second in the encounter with 15 minutes left to play to seal his side’s victory.

Choupo-Moting’s impressive performance at the Allianz Arena has seen him being named the best player of the game.

The 31-year-old Cameroon international, who was born in Hamburg and spent his entire career in German football prior to his move to Stoke City in 2017, affirmed that he was pleased to be back and among the goals so soon.

“It was a nice evening. I am happy to be back in Germany and glad I scored two goals. It was a good debut,” Choupo-Moting explained to Sky after the final whistle.

Choupo-Moting signed for Bayern on a free transfer after leaving French giants Paris Saint-Germain last month.
