Women to winning, they answer all

Franck Ribery is known to be Bayern Munich's funny bone but Bastian Schweinsteiger showed he could give his French midfield mate competition in that department.

Asked his take on Indian women and food, Bayern's midfield engine said he is "more interested in the women than food… Let's see how many of them turn up tomorrow (Tuesday)." And when some inquired about his shoulder, Schweinsteiger said: "There are no problems there anymore and unless Bhaichung (Bhutia) goes after it, I should be good."

"When the scoreline reads 0-3 we will go after Bastian's shoulder," Bhutia said.

Questions ranged from the European Championships to India, a bit of Bhutia and a lot of Bayern. They were even asked whether Bayern are scared of Barcelona.

"We are playing at a very high intensity this season. Of course, Barcelona are the best team in Europe but I have eight years of experience of coaching in Spain and I have beaten them home and away… We've got ambitions this season and we want to move as far ahead as possible in the Champions League," said Heynckes.

On their first India trip, the coach assured everyone that they mean business. "We are among the top five teams in Europe and we aim to show that tomorrow," the coach said.

When the conversation shifted to this year's European championships, Lahm said: "There are lot of club assignments before that. Of course, we would like to win the Euro.

We have finished third in 2006 (World Cup), second in 2008 (Euro) and third again in 2010 (World Cup).

We want to fulfil that ambition this year."
