Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is happy to be compared with Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs.

Schweinsteiger, 31, would like to emulate Giggs and AS Roma captain Francesco Totti by playing well into his 30's at the same club.

"Can you compare me with them? Yes, absolutely. They are two amazing players. Giggs is already 40, but is still playing at the highest level. He's incredible," Schweini said.

"I am also proud that I have been playing so long for my own club.

"Have there been times when I was almost gone? Yes, several times."
