    anyone wondering why the club stood behind him with BOTH of his major injuries and rehab time they are certainly seeing it now. The man has been a beast lately, and he's only been back a couple short weeks. Get Martinez and Lahm back and Neuer can start hosting tea parties for the fans on his side of the field.

    Yeah right? He's been like a new signing altoghether. I can fully understand the Spainard to play this lad before Benatia, Holger oozes Bayern and this we need before a big money signings.

    No disrespect to Benatia, but he should look at Badstuber for inspiration, out for god know's how long and fight his way back for a starting position in the so far most important game of the year.

    I'm really glad for Holger and his career, people even said he might be finished with his horror injury and look at him, Die Roten youth product, our own.

    Guardiola obviously prefers Boateng - Badstuber and if you really are a FCB fan then you'll clap in your little hands, top German CB duo, precisely what you expect of Bayern, German core to the bone.

    I was so pleased that Bads scored this first ever UCL goal yesterday, if anyone deserved to score, it was him

    It was wonderful to see him back in our CL squad and he had another good game, shame about the yellow card but no one's perfect.



    Badstuber: I didn't know how to celebrate

    All the FCB players were heroes on Wednesday night, but the South Terrace loyalists singled out one man for special adulation. “Badstuber! Badstuber!” they chanted, summoning the Munich youth product for a special round of applause. It was deserved: fully 841 days after his last Champions League starting appearance, a 1-1 away draw with Valencia on 20 November 2012, the defender made a remarkable comeback in the competition, crowned with a rare goal.

    “It was a fantastic feeling. I don’t score very often. I really didn’t know how I should celebrate,” revealed Badstuber, still in a whirl following the 7-0 demolition of Shakhtar Donetsk. His 63rd-minute strike was a classic for the big defender as Rafinha sent over an inch-perfect cross from the right. Holger brushed off his marker, took a couple of steps forward and met the ball with a powerful header, making the score 5-0 to the home team. It was Badstuber’s first-ever goal in the Champions League.

    “The goal was just the icing on the cake,” the player said with typical modesty afterwards. As always, he preferred to emphasise the team’s success. “It was much more important that we made the next round,” said the Bavarian native, making no secret of his relief after the one-sided encounter with the Ukrainian champions. “If you’ve come away from the first leg with a dangerous result but go on to complete the job at home, it’s obviously a great weight off your shoulders.”

    Rummenigge’s hero


    Badstuber’s performance was the talk of the mixed zone after the match. “He’s my personal hero,” declared Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, “if you’ve had the year and a half he’s had but keep coming back… he deserves all the support he’s getting from the south terrace.” Badstuber said the chairman’s words of praise were “wonderful, because it’s not something you get automatically. I’ve always said I want to repay the club’s faith by delivering the goods.”

    Every man in the Bayern squad was delighted for their team-mate. “I’m so pleased Holger’s back. He’s a superb footballer and a great personality,” commented Bastian Schweinsteiger. “Holger isn’t just important to FC Bayern, but to Germany as well.” Badstuber, ever the team player, countered: “I’m just pleased to be making a contribution to our success. I want to keep going from here.”
