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.”
