Fan Snatches Kimmich’s Shirt From Young Supporter, Other Fans Force Him To Give It Back

A man was forced to hand back Joshua Kimmich's shirt to a young supporter after he snatched it from the fan's hand.

The youngster was holding a message for the 24-year-old German right-back, with the Bayern Munich star approaching him after the match with his shirt in hand.

The Germany international threw his shirt directly at the supporter, only for another fan to pluck it out of his hand.

With the man walking away with the shirt, a number of Bayern Munich fans immediately stopped him and pointed to the kid to say that it was for him.

As one Twitter user pointed out, Kimmich stayed back for a moment (his head is visible as the camera pans to the crowd) to ensure the young supporter received the shirt.

The Bavarians secured a 3-1 victory over Schalke on Saturday and are second in the Bundesliga, with the club five points behind league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Last month, it was reported that James Rodríguez would remain at Bayern Munich until the end of the season.

While Niko Kovač has had an up-and-down relationship with the 27-year-old Colombia international, the Bavarians boss has been a busy man and recently signed a wonderkid as he prepares to build for the future.

Bayern Munich will resume their Champions League campaign this month when they head to Anfield for the first-leg fixture against Liverpool.

Manuel Neuer has said that his side are relishing at the prospect of playing at Anfield.

"We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium," he told ESPN. "Everyone who watches football knows it's special, and I think they will be two great games.

"For us, the Champions League is very important. It is a knockout tie, two finals. We are happy to play in their stadium.

"It's the first game for me at Anfield. I'm looking forward to playing there.

"Hopefully, it will be great night for us. But it depends on the result, of course."

Who will progress in the Champions League out of Bayern Munich and Liverpool?
