Dante: I'd happily retire at Bayern Munich
Dante has revealed that he would happily end his playing career at Bayern Munich if the club offers him the chance to do so.
The 28-year-old centre-back only the Bavarians from Borussia Monchengladbach at the beginning of the summer transfer window, and is loving life at the Allianz Arena.
"I'd take it at once if Bayern offer me the chance to retire here. I have a four-year contract, and I'm delighted to be here,'' Dante told the club's official website.
"I'm not thinking about any other clubs. I'll give everything I have in these four years and attempt to repay the faith shown in me.
"My time here has been outstanding so far. It all works so well together, the club, the stadium, the fans, my new team-mates. I have a super, positive feeling. I really like Munich."
The centre-back, who was signed for a fee of €5 million, has featured for the full 90 minutes in Bayern's opening two league games, which they won 3-0 and 6-1.
However, Germany legend Jürgen Kohler recently questioned the Brazilians quality at this level of the game.
The former Juventus and Borussia Dortmund defender said: "I find Bayern's situation in defence very interesting, the two centre-back positions in particular.
"This is not their best area in my opinion. Dante is certainly not a bad player, but Bayern are aiming high in Europe, and it remains to be seen whether he has the quality to succeed at the highest level."
Dante will be looking to prove himself during Munich’s next game, which is against FSV Mainz 05 on September 15, before their Champions League campaign kicks-off with a visit from Spanish side Valencia four days later.
