Goal drought over for Schweinsteiger

3 September 2012 17:32

Bastian Schweinsteiger was happy to be back among the goals in Bayern Munich's 6-1 victory over Stuttgart on Sunday.

The midfielder is not known for his scoring prowess, having last netted in the Bundesliga eight months ago against Borussia Monchengladbach, but capped off his side's emphatic win at the weekend.

"I had a good opportunity to score in Furth but I generally don't get that many," he told FCB News.

"That's why I must try to score when I get those rare chances. [On Sunday] I did just that with my first attempt, but I hope that we will score many goals as a team."

The 28-year-old has suffered a succession of injuries over the past year, but he believes he is now on the road to recovery and helping his team-mates once more, despite Germany coach Joachim Low not yet being convinced of his fitness.

"Everything is okay, I’m a little bit tired from yesterday’s minutes on the field," Schweinsteiger added.

"There are matches when I’m being chased by opponents all the time, so that the other players get more touches and find bigger spaces but generally I try to organise our game.

"I distribute the ball and try to bring my team-mates into good positions."

Schweinsteiger also commented on new signing Javi Martinez, and claims it is for the best that the former Athletic Bilbao man will spend the international break in Munich, rather than with Spain.

"It's good for him (to stay in Munich). He has played at the Olympics after a long season with Bilbao and Spain," he noted.

"It's good for him to train for 10 days and acclimatise to his new environment. You get to know the players better. He already knows some words in German, he's very friendly."
