Bayern's Schweinsteiger happy to emulate Giggs and remain with one club

Bastian Schweinsteiger claims that he wants to finish his career at Bayern Munich in the same manner as one-club-man Ryan Giggs of Manchester United. Schweinsteiger has now said that he could follow the examples sets by Giggs and Roma forward Francesco Totti and remain at Bayern for the remainder of his career.

"Can I be compared to Francesco Totti or Ryan Giggs? Yes, absolutely," the 29-year-old told France Football.

"They are two amazing players. At 40 years of age, Giggs is still going on playing at highest level. He is remarkable.

"I am proud to have been at just one club. Were there any moments I was close to leaving? Yes, several times. But in the end the heart made the decision.

"Will I terminate my career at Bayern? It is impossible to reply.

"Here I am more than happy, but there could be surprises in the future. Moreover, I still have a few years to go on playing."
