Andre Silva: Bundesliga the reason people watch football

Bundesliga has been an eye-opener to Andre Silva, ever since he joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year loan deal from AC Milan.

The Portuguese international believes there’s a huge difference compared to the time he played with Porto, the club he begin his professional career back in 2015.

“In question of football, maybe the games here in the Bundesliga have more intensity and the players want to win every game.

“We make a lot of counters, and for the fans it’s so good because it’s why people watch football. I think in Portugal there are more differences between the big teams and the weak teams.”

Silva joined AC Milan at the age of 22 in 2017 but only scored twice in the league, with another 8 goals scored in the Europa League.

He joined Sevilla on loan last season, scoring 11 goals in all competition.

Now at the age of 24, he joined Eintracht on loan, scoring 3 goals in 10 Bundesliga game this season so far.

Despite moving abroad at a young age, Silva admits his experience has made him a better player.

“It’s difficult, it’s hard, but in my mind, what I think about this is when we have a big obstacle, something difficult, it’s where we grow more. So I think it’s a good way to grow up and become a great player.”

For every player, winning the title would be the biggest dream in the career.

Silva is no exception.

“I want to be in the history of football. I want to make better than I’ve made until now.

I want to finish my career and look back and say I made big steps, and now I can finish as a big player – especially with titles, that’s what every player wants.”

Bundesliga is back in action this week, with Eintracht Frankfurt travelling to Baden-Württemberg to face TSG Hoffenheim.
