Joao Cancelo takes just 17 minutes to make impact at Bayern Munich after shock loan transfer from Man City | The SunFebruary 2, 2023
JOAO CANCELO did not take long to make an impact at new club Bayern Munich.
Cancelo was thrown straight into the fray by Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann against Mainz on Wednesday having only arrived on deadline day.
And it took just 17 minutes for the Portugal star to show why he was in last season's PFA Team of the Year.
Picking up the ball on the right flank, in conjunction with his role as a right wing-back, Cancelo lifted a cross to the back post for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to expertly volley into the net from a tight angle.
The goals kept flowing from there as the Bavarians completed a 4-0 rout to progress in the next round of the DFB-Pokal.
Cancelo himself was a 71st minute substitute, perhaps with a view to playing against VfB Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The defender joined the German club on loan for the rest of the season after falling out with Pep Guardiola.
The pair were reportedly involved in a training ground bust-up after Cancelo found out he was dropped for the club's FA Cup clash against Arsenal.
This came as Guardiola tweaked his system after questioning his players hunger to win the Premier League again.
With Cancelo's and the City boss' relationship becoming strained, the club took the bold decision to allow Cancelo to leave on loan.
