Tom Brady got a little familiar with Germany on Friday when he was offered a traditional Bavarian outfit, before being asked a few questions about his personal life.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback said he still has no regrets about returning to play this season.
“Zero, no regrets,” Brady said at a crowded press conference at Bayern Munich headquarters ahead of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
“I decided to come back to the game because I still had the will to perform. I discussed it with the team, and they were happy to hear that I wanted to come back for another season.
Brady and Gisele Bündchen recently confirmed their divorce.
Brady was asked by a German journalist about his troubles on and off the pitch, and whether he sometimes felt remorse for making the decision to pursue his athletic career.
“I don’t have any regrets about this kind of thing,” said the holder of seven Super Bowl rings. When I decided that I wanted to return to the game, I meant it and I did everything to make the most of this opportunity. »
Another local reporter asked him how he coped with the challenges in his personal and professional life.
“You do your best every day and, yeah, that’s what I try to do, do my best for my family and my teammates,” explained the 45-year-old veteran. We all have challenges. Life is difficult for everyone. We try to do our best. »
Brady went on to say he enjoys the daily routine that comes with his job, as well as the wins — like the 16-13 snatch at the Los Angeles Rams last week. According to him, if he has been playing football for so long, it is “because I never felt like it was work”.
“I find it hard to believe I’m still playing football at this age, but I’m having fun and loving the competition,” Brady continued. Sure, matches like last week’s are why we’re so excited, because it’s hard to replicate the adrenaline rush that comes with winning when you’re at home, playing Xbox or something. . »
