Schweini more scared of Milan

Bayern Munich talisman Bastian Schweinsteiger admits that he considered joining Inter, but remains more afraid of their rivals Milan.

The 26-year-old Germany international was out of contract last summer, but signed a new five-year deal, which ill keep him at the Allianz Arena until 2016.

Inter were one of the teams interested in luring Schweinsteiger away from Bayern, particularly off the back of his excellent performances at the World Cup in South Africa.

However, the transfer never materialised.

"I stayed where I was even if Inter fascinated me with their past and present success," Schweinsteiger said.

Asked if Bayern are afraid of Inter following their defeat in last year's Champions League Final, he replied: "No, it seems to me that the faces of Milan's players are more scary.

"We are Bayern. We are here to win and if we can't do that then at least score a goal. I wouldn't like a 0-0."
