Bastian Schweinsteiger is among the players who have devoted their entire career to a single club.
The German midfielder is one of the finest in the world in his position and he deservingly won his first Champions League with Bayern Munich.
Bayern after their Champions League triumph and 7-0 victory to Barcelona in semi-final looks like the best club in Europe.
Bayern saw four of their players shortlisted for the best player in Europe award with Schweinsteiger making the 10-man list along with Thomas Muller, Franck Ribery and Ajen Robben.
Schweinsteiger has always been an engine motor for Bayern and Germany. He was fit for large parts of the season and he was a permanent first-team member for club and country.
Last year’s Champions League defeat to Chelsea in the final was a heartbreak but winning it in the very next year shows the consistency and the character of the club as well as its players.
And that thing truly makes them a real champion. Schweinsteiger can be credited to see the emergence of Bayern as Europe's best and the squad looks to improve even more with the addition of Mario Gotze.
At the age of 28, Schweinsteiger already has 98 caps for the national team and an impressive tally of 24 goals and 32 assists.
He is also called ‘brain’ of Germany by national team coach Joachim Low and will certainly be an integral part for Germany in next year’s FIFA World Cup.
Schweinsteiger is destined to add to his six Bundesliga titles, one Champions League and 98 international caps over the course of the season and thus making him a legend for club and country.
