As a result, Bailey's named was linked with the Premier League, but he said in February that he would be comfortable making United and Chelsea wait as he looks to make his name in Germany. Speaking to Goal.com, Bender said: "He has got special abilities, he is incredibly fast and great at dribbling. But we did not expect that he would explode that fast. This example shows that football is a fast-paced business. "It is important that he handles the hype around him correctly and does not want too much too fast. Now everybody comes to him and suddenly wants something from him. "He is only 20 years old and therefore still has development potential. He is a great player and will probably leave one day for a high fee, but I wish him to stay with us for a long time."
