Schweinsteiger is unmarked of the comparisons with Xavi and Iniesta

Bastian Schweinsetiger explained that "Xavi and Iniesta are two excellent players, but I think differently, make more air balls".


The Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger, spoke about a recent statement made by current coach Jupp Heynckes, matching the cracks midfielder Barça Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta.

Concretely, the 66 year-old coach, affirmed on Schweinsteiger "is the heart of the team, a midfielder with outstanding technical ability. Always take the right decisions, is on par with Iniesta and Xavi."

The player, meanwhile, wanted to show a different view to that of his coach, but not contradictory, and did not hesitate to praise the two 'small people' of Barça.

"They're both excellent players, no doubt. But I think a little different, especially in physical terms. I win balls in the air simply because of my height, but also make decisions different from yours. But obviously, I taste like what Jupp is referring", said Schweinstiger. (via SPORT)
