German international and FC Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has big plans for 2012. He wants to win all possible titles with club (UEFA Champions League, German Bundesliga, German Cup) and country (2012 European Championships) in the coming six months.
"If I could chose, then I would pick Champions League and Euro2012," says a recovering Schweinsteiger to German media, "but I would also like to win the Bundesliga and German Cup as well."
Typical Schweinsteiger it comes out cooly, but the 27 year old midfielder is much more mature then in the years gone by. He has the conviction that all this is achieveable.
Schweinsteiger had hoped to make a surprise comeback before the Bundesliga winter break, but coach Jupp Heynckes had vetoed any such move as he see's Schweinsteiger crucial to the clubs plans for the second half of the season.
But Schweinsteiger knows that winning the UEFA Champions League title would be tough with FC Barcelona currently the best football club side in the world, so he see's winning the Euro2012 title as a more realistic aim.
