Tymoschuk itching to join Bayern

Future Bayern Munich midfielder Anatoliy Tymoschuk admits he cannot wait for July when he will finally join the German champions and in his mind compete in "one of the best leagues in the world".

The Ukrainian has agreed a move from Zenit St Petersburg to Bayern from March 1, but he will remain with the Russians on loan until the summer before moving to Germany in time for next season.

"At the moment, the Bundesliga is one of the best league's in the world," he told the Bild newspaper. "All of the teams play a good football at a high level."

"There are so many teams currently fighting for the title, right down to eighth place, and that shows how high the level of the league is."

Tymoschuk has followed the Bundesliga for a while now and his love for the game developed from watching one particular former Bayern Munich star.

Lothar Matthaus was Tymoschuk's idol and he still wears the captain's armband of the former Germany international which he once inherited as a souvenir.

He added: "The way that Lothar Matthaus played inspired me (and) his charisma as a leading player and his talent in dictating a game."

The 29-year-old should have no problems settling in with Bayern either since he already speaks German.

"I understand the language well because I learned it in school," he revealed. "I speak fluent German.

"I know there are a lot of very long words which are hard to pronounce, but seriously, I know enough words to get by in day-to-day life."
