Bayern's Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

We speak to the Ukraine and FC Bayern München midfielder.

Ukraine international Anatoliy Tymoshchuk tells us why Lothar Matthäus was his childhood hero and the story of how he ended up playing with his idol's captain's armband, as well as his keys to being a good defensive midfielder and about how he is making his own contribution to grassroots football.
