The versatile teenager has spoken about his new team-mate, and also explained his disappointment at not making an appearance for the senior team yet this season

Bayern Munich youngster Mitchell Weiser has spoken exclusively to Goal.com, and has given the first indication as to what Javi Martinez is like, just a few days into his Bundesliga career.
The 18-year-old midfielder spoke after the Bavarians' crushing 6-1 victory over Stuttgart on Sunday, and was full of praise for his Spanish team-mate calling him a 'nice guy'.
“He's a very nice, quiet guy. I haven't spoken with him that much, but he seems very personable,” he explained.
The former Koln man also explained his disappointment at not making a start for Jupp Heynckes' side yet, but also commented on understanding his coach's decision.
“Of course I would like to play,” he said. “But with a squad such as ours, you have to expect, as a young player, that you won't always be in the squad. It is a shame, but I can accept it.
“Yes [the boss has spoken to me]. Martinez has come in, Franck [Ribery] has recovered from injury, I really don't have much to say on it. I think it explains itself.”
Weiser signed for the Allianz Arena side in June, having made just one senior appearance for the Billy Goats last term.
