Eric Choupo-Moting kicks off Bayern career with a double

Striker Eric Choupo-Moting kicked off Bayern Munich career in style by netting two goals against Duren on Thursday. 

Choupo-Moting completed a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the transfer window.

However, he had to wait to make his bow due to the international window. 

He finally got the chance to start in Thursday’s DFB Pokal clash where he scored two times.

Choupo-Moting happy with high flying start

The striker was all but happy after the game that saw him score twice on his debut.

“It was a nice evening,” Choupo-Moting was quoted by Sky before adding.          

“I am happy to be back in Germany and glad I scored two goals. It was a good debut.”

Thomas Muller was also on target for Bayern on Thursday, converting the second goal of the evening from the penalty spot.

Hoever, the Bayern stalwart was surprised by the resistance put up by their amateur opponents in the cup tie.

“Duren copied the way we usually play and at the beginning we had some difficulties with that.”

“It did not feel like there were so many leagues between us,” he noted.

Choupo-Moting spent two years in Paris prior to his Bayern move, and was offered the chance to extend his contract by the Ligue 1 champions.

However, he decided to sign for Bayern Munich.
