Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger insists that winning the World Cup with Germany in the summer has not dampened his desire to secure more silverware.
The midfield maestro was excellent for Die Mannschaft in Brazil, pulling the strings from the centre of the park as Joachim Low’s men secured their country’s fourth global title.
After such a high, their players have suffered somewhat of a slow start to qualifying for Euro 2016, currently sitting third in Group D behind Poland and the Republic of Ireland, although they remain the favourites to top the pool at 1.22.
Germany have had to do without Schweinsteiger, who has been sidelined with a knee injury but is now on his way back to fitness, coming off the bench in Bayern Munich’s last four games.
With multiple Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal triumphs to his name, as well as a Champions League crown, the 30-year-old could possibly be forgiven for taking his eye off the ball.
However, with Bayern the current 1.22 favourites to once again claim their domestic title this year, Schweinsteiger has revealed he is as determined as ever.
“With the world title, I’ve become even greedier,” he admitted to Focus. “I won’t be bored of winning for a long time.
“I now know how to win big titles and what it feels like to lift a trophy in the air. I want to have many more of these moments.
“I would even say that winning titles is addictive.”
