Bayern Munich keeper Neuer: Martinez needs time to settle

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says Javi Martinez will need time to settle.

The Spanish midfielder arrived last month from Athletic Bilbao.

"He has to adapt to his new surroundings a bit. The Spanish league is different to the Bundesliga," Neuer stated to Spox.

"That's why people cannot expect too much from him right away. He will do a good job eventually, though.

"He's a very open guy and the good thing is that he speaks English pretty well for a Spaniard.

"Will his hefty price tag weigh down on him? You don't think about money when you step on to the pitch."
