Having joined Bayern just before his 14th birthday, Schweinsteiger has come through the ranks to become an icon at his first and only club. "I’m proud. Going each morning to the Sabenerstrasse [training ground] still brings me as much joy. When I go into the Bayern dressing room, I’m happy. It’s nice to go to training where I know everyone, my teammates, the stewards, the cleaners or the employees. It’s only when I’m injured or I’m in pain that I’m in a bad mood. Today, I’m happy to see that we achieve all our objectives. That shows that I was right to extend my contract. And I had a dream: I wanted to win the Champions League with Bayern at any cost, because this shirt means everything to me.”

One Family, one love, all Bayern!
"When Bastian Schweinsteiger signed a five-and-a-half year contract in December 2010, six months after losing to Inter Milan in his first Champions League final, he told the fans: ‘I want to win the Champions League but the question is: Is that better with Real Madrid, Inter Milan, some other club or Bayern Munich? I think I’ve answered that question clearly and unmistakably. We can achieve a lot here.’ Schweinsteiger is 29 and, born in the Alpine ski village of Kolbermoor, he has spent 17 years within the confines of Bayern. It is part of who he is and he is central to the club’s 21st century identity."
Following the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg between Manchester United and FC Bayern München last Tuesday, 1 April 2014, UK media the Daily Mirror and The Sun published disrespectful, discriminatory and personally insulting ‘reports’ about our player Bastian Schweinsteiger. This is unacceptable to FC Bayern München and the club strongly condemns reporting of this nature.
The Champions League is the main vehicle for UEFA’s major European-wide “RESPECT” campaign. This logo appears on the shirts of all players in the competition, and all participants in the competition are required to uphold the principles of “RESPECT”.
Due to a breach of this commitment by four spectators who displayed a disrespectful banner at the Allianz Arena in Munich during the Round of 16 home fixture against Arsenal, FC Bayern was ordered to close a 700-seat section of the stadium and pay a €10,000 fine. We accepted this sanction.
FC Bayern München will not issue media accreditation to any representatives of the Daily Mirror and The Sun for the return fixture between FC Bayern München and Manchester United at the Allianz Arena on 9 April 2014.
