Martinez hails compatriot Xavi

20 April 2013 12:14

Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez has hailed Spain team-mate Xavi as the world's best midfielder.

The Bundesliga champions take on the Liga leaders at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, and Martinez has singled out Xavi as one of the Barca's key players going into the clash.

"Xavi is the best midfielder in the world and Barcelona's engine," the former Athletic Bilbao star was quoted as saying on Bayern's official website.

"I expect two great games against Barcelona. The spectators will enjoy it. We want to go to London."

The midfielder went on to reflect on his move to Bayern at the start of the 2012/13 campaign, expressing his delight at life in Bavaria this season.

"I'm proud and delighted to have come here," he said. "I'm very positive about it all."

Martinez has developed into an important first-team player at Bayern since his move, making 38 appearances in all competitions so far this season.
