Xherdan Shaqiri: Limited game time at Bayern Munich

The talented Switzerland international forward has spent the last two seasons at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern having prevailed in the scramble for his signature back in 2012.

The 22-year-old faces stiff competition for places at the German champions, though, and was restricted to just 10 Bundesliga starts in the 2013/14 campaign.

Shaqiri acknowledges that he now has a big decision to make, with it possible that he may have to look elsewhere for regular game time.

A man who has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League in the past told 20 Minuten: "It's clear that I cannot continue like this. If nothing changes, I will have to make some changes myself.

"I want to play in the important games as well and not just in the Bundesliga. I don't want to go through another year like this.

"I only want to play for a major club. The Champions League is important to me. We will see what happens.

"England would be an option. If I were to leave Bayern, it will be for a foreign club. But it will have to be a club challenging for the title."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
