Javi Martinez: Schweinsteiger is a legend

Javi Martinez is delighted with the help Bastian Schweinsteiger is offering him in adapting to his new surroundings at Bayern Munich.

The Spain international left Athletic Bilbao for a German adventure earlier this summer, and Schweinsteiger is doing his utmost to make the new signing feel at home at the Allianz Arena.

“Schweinsteiger is a legend, a great guy. He speaks a bit of Spanish and is trying to help me to settle in,” Martinez was quoted as saying on the cliub’s official website.

The holding midfielder then went on to stress that he will do his utmost to become a key player at the Bundesliga giants.

“Now I feel like I can focus on football again and train every day to earn my place in the starting 11, that’s what I wanted.

“I’ll play wherever the trainer wants me to play and I’m going to give it everything so I can do it well. I’m the kind of player who gives 100 per cent in every game.”

Javi Martinez made his official Bayern debut in last weekend’s 6-1 win over Stuttgart.
