‘To be the best, you have got to beat the best’ is something which Schweinsteiger conforms to as he applied the same in his career till date.
“Xavi and Iniesta are great players. They play in the best team in the world. And we will try to beat the best team in the world. And when we beat the best team of the world maybe some players of Bayern Munich are best players of the world,” he told Goal.com.
Having scored a peach of a goal in his side’s 4-0 victory over the Indian national team, Schweinsteiger hoped that the beautiful game prospers in the country.
“The match was good. The stadium was not full but the crowd was very loud. The Indian team, especially in the second half, was good. We didn’t get to stay here for long time as we generally spend on tour. But we had a good time. Everybody was nice to us and everything was great.”
“I hope that football comes more and more here in India.”
