Engin Yildiz himself was a self-taught footballer who, from a young age, coached Kenan and instilled in him a deep passion for the game.

Youth career

Bayern Munich Academy

In 2012, when he was only 7 years old, Yildiz joined the Bayern Munich training center. He immediately succeeded and was awarded the captaincy several times in the Bavarian youth teams. The young player also quickly became an indispensable part of the U19 team.

It was this season, his last with Bayern’s U19s in 2021-22, that Yildiz really established himself within the youth team, scoring 6 goals and providing 8 assists in 20 appearances.

Captaincy and leadership

Therefore, Yildiz’s leadership qualities were evident from an early age; he was often called upon to captain Bayern’s youth teams.

What set him apart from so many others within Bayern’s academy was his ability to organise and motivate his teammates, combined with impressive technical skills.

Move to Juventus

After his contract with Bayern Munich expired in July 2022, it was time for Yıldız to leave the Bavarians and join Italian powerhouse Juventus as a free agent.

It seemed a somewhat courageous and ambitious step in the career of a young player who hoped to test his abilities at the highest level of European football.
