An interview with Schweinsteiger on Spox http://www.spox.com/de/sport/fussball/b ... -2010.html
SPOX: Mr.Schweinsteiger , No German player is criticized more than you
Schweini: Yes , even on SPOX , I Often Get The Title "cucumber of the game " (Which means the worst player of the game)
(Laughs) , But I Have been in the bundesliga for a long time , and I Know my skills , And Van Gaal and The Teammates also know That , this is the most important thing
SPOX : Now You Are Shining in Your New Role as CDM
Schweini :STOP!!,It is A Misunderstanding , Of course i have changed my position but it is not new ,in the younger teams , i have played the 6 and 8 Position , and even under jupp heynckes , I was not a 10 like some people assume
SPOX : Are U a player with Defensive Mentality
Schweini : Let Us Say it like this : I Dont only think offensively, we have many players in the team that can score A Goal , so it would be also good to keep a clean sheet , Because of that , i See my Role As Organizer and my main job is Defense
SPOX : With The National team , You are A Right Winger
Schweini : I Hope that Also in The National team , i can Be A Central player , there is my best position , But it is not A Wish concert
SPOX : The CL Drawing is tomorrow , Which team is the team that u dont want to face ?
Schweini : Barcelona , It would be not bad avoiding them in the next round , But We should not Think about that , after all it is all luck
SPOX : After The 4-1 vs Juve , where do u rank FC BAYERN
Schweini : There is no team in the world that would like to play against us ,not only the victory , but the style and way we played with vs Juventus , is still in the peoples heads and this is something positive , I Rank us as one of the top teams in europe
Spox : How is it going with Bayern ?
Schweini :Now the automatic stuff are good , and our dominance is getting rewarded , Before we were dominant but we could not convert that into something useful (He means goals)
adding to that , every team needs time to play together , If A New coach and players Come in the summer , You think , "How do they play ? What philosophy do they follow ? , But Now We Now that The Confidence is growing
SPOX What is easier Beating real madrid on a game console or Winning The Champions league with Bayer in In Madrid ?
Schweini It is not easy to win the champions league on FIFA 10, Because the Strengths of the players are real too (Laughs)
But to be honest it is easier to win on A Game console than the reality
We should not talk about Winning thr Champions league , In FAct we should be happy that we are still in
Spox : You sound Pessimistic
Schweini : The Biggest dream of mine and The Club is to win the Champions league , but it will be hard , Barcelona and Chelsea are 1 step in front of us , But we are from the 8 teams that have a realistic chance , we want to catch up with Barcelona and chelsea , and it is possible this season
BTW , Schweini was picked as the Cover of FIFA 2010
