Martinez: More Spaniards in Bundesliga

Javi Martinez hopes more Spanish stars will come to the Bundesliga after Pep Guardiola was announced as Bayern Munich's new Coach.

The former Barcelona boss will join the German side at the end of the current campaign, and the Athletic Bilbao graduate, who joined the Bavarian team last summer, appreciates that it is a huge boost for football in the country.

“The arrival of Guardiola enriches not just Bayern, but the whole of the Bundesliga,” he told Bild.

“Hopefully other leading Spanish stars will follow his lead and come to play in German football.

“I appreciate Guardiola as a person and as a Coach – he has outstanding references from players I've spoken to that have played under him.”
