Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich arrived in the Chinese capital of Beijing on Monday - the first stop on a five-day tour in Asia.
Bayern face Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan on Tuesday.
"The European Championship has just finished and we had a lot of players taking part in the championship. Most of them just rejoined the team yesterday from their holidays. It is a bit of a rush for them, but since we are here already we will strengthen our spirit and make our utmost efforts in tomorrow's game. Also, the players are all looking forward to it and they will try their best to give full vent to their skills."

"I'm looking forward to the game. Personally, I'm very happy to be back in the team after a long holiday. We will do our best to prepare for the first friendly game after the holiday. My colleagues in the German national team have very rich experiences in the matches and we are willing to collect different experiences in various kinds of international games. As a player, I'm looking forward to tomorrow's game in which I can have an idea how Chinese players play football."
