The Bayern Munich manager has insisted that is closing in on full fitness and hailed the team’s good start to the new season.
The Bavarian giants have started the new season on a sensational note and have secured two wins from the two games played thus far. The team had a lot of problems from injuries last season, but a host of new additions this summer
mean that the side has one of the strongest squads in Europe.
Star midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger had missed the most part of the second-half of last season through injury and the player is still dealing with his fitness issues. Jupp Heynckes has claimed that the midfielder is nearing
full fitness and is hopeful that the player remains a regular part of the team throughout the season.
The coach expressed his delight on the German international’s return to form and praised the player’s performance against Stuttgart in the last league game. He wants Schweinsteiger to be fully fit for the remainder of the season
as he is a vital part of the team.
“He's keen, energetic and enjoying his football, and you see it every day. He gave a good display against Stuttgart, and that was a boost to his confidence. He's recovered his belief, and I'm delighted with that,” he was quoted
as saying in an interview.
On the other hand, the former Bayer Leverkusen manager is delighted with the acquisition of Javi from Athletic Bilbao. He admitted that Bayern have a world-class midfielder in their ranks and is happy with the buy.
“He'll be a huge bonus for us in footballing terms. He gives us even more quality in midfield, which is a motivating factor for everyone. But even Javi will have to play and fight his way into the team based on his performance.
Obviously he has my full support, just like all the other players,” he concluded.
Javi Martinez made his much awaited transfer from the Spanish side earlier this summer for a reported fee of €40 million. The Germans had to settle to pay the buy-out clause of the player as Bilbao refused to agree for a lower
transfer fee.
