Huntelaar talks to Champions Matchday

Goalscoring is the "elixir of life" says FC Schalke 04 hot shot Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in an exclusive interview for the latest edition of Champions Matchday magazine.

As in-form strikers light up the UEFA Champions League stage, the new issue has the inside stories on Javier Hernández, who gives Sir Alex Ferguson options and Manchester United FC goals when they need them most, and Olivier Giroud, a man on a mission with Arsenal FC. We also speak to Manchester City FC's charismatic forward Carlos Tévez. Also in scoring mood is Celtic FC midfielder Victor Wanyama, whose goal against FC Barcelona has given the Bhoys a real chance of qualification. The big Kenyan talks about passion, winning in Moscow and loving life in Glasgow.

Elsewhere, SC Braga coach José Peseiro explains his theories on the game and the five dimensions of being a footballer. Technical Area is dedicated to Málaga CF and coach Manuel Pellegrini's role in their dream competition debut. Also in the lineup are FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazil maestro Fernandinho, FC Bayern München veteran Claudio Pizarro – author of the UEFA Champions League's third fastest hat-trick – and why Paris Saint-Germain FC coach Carlo Ancelotti was surprised by David Beckham.

Issue five is available across Europe from 14 November and also comes in digital versions which can be purchased on Apple Newsstand or Zinio. This season, for the first time, Champions Matchday is available before each round of the UEFA Champions League and you can follow the magazine on Twitter @ChampionsMag.
