As Xavi Martinez prepares to leave Bayern Munich, he draws a 2-1 victory over Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on Thursday.

Martinez, who was reported by local media to be returning to Athletic Bilbao eight years after leaving the Spanish club for Bayern, had only five minutes left on the pitch when the crucial goal went home in overtime. After a volley from Sevilla keeper Bono David Alaba was taken just wide of the post, the Spaniard made a call to direct the ball into the net just before it was taken into the corner.

This is not the first time Martinez has proved decisive in the Super Cup, forcing a penalty shootout to score off the bench in extra time against Chelsea in 2013 to win their first trophy under Pep Guardiola.

The goal in Budapest is a rarity for Martinez, who has been in limbo in recent years due to injury and loss of form, having only started six Bundesliga games last season and has not played in the “Final Eight” Champions League tournament that Bayern have won. .

“You can always trust him, he always gives 100% out whenever he comes, he has the experience and mentality to win games like today, that’s what’s important,” said Bayern coach Hansie Flick. “For his future, it’s not the most important thing right now, it’s something he has to decide for himself.” Although Flick Martinez has been used sparingly since taking over as Bayern coach last year, he is not the only coach struggling to find a role as a player, but one who can act as a defensive midfielder and center back. He has only started more than half of Bayern’s three league campaigns and has missed almost every game of the 2014-15 season since breaking his knee ligament. “I always wanted to give 100% to Bayern, I showed it today,” Martinez said. “Even if I only play for 10 or 15 minutes, I try to help the team. I did it today with my goal in mind.” Now I want to celebrate with the team and the team members. As long as I am in Munich I will give everything I have for the team and defend this shirt.
