Bayern director praises Perisic: ‘He doesn’t do anything special but he delivers’

Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is full of praise for Ivan Perisic. The Croatian winger is on loan at the Germans from Internazionale and could be making his move permanent this summer. Perisic has been an important player for Bayern this season and he has now been praised by the club’s president.

Rummenigge said, “Ivan has had a good season and is very reliable. He doesn’t necessarily do something spectacular, but statistically he does show up with goals and assists. Flick is really counting on him.” Perisic scored a goal on Friday as Bayern Munich trashed Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

“We really appreciated that when we qualified for the Final Eight of the Champions League, he, Philippe Coutinho and the others on loan agreed to remain even with a pay cut. We haven’t decided yet if he’s staying, but the coach and I really like him.” Bayern and Inter will talk about a possible permanent stay for Perisic after the season has ended.
