Manuel Neuer says that newly-signed Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez will need time to adapt to life in the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer believes that midfielder Javi Martinez will need time to adapt to life in the Bundesliga.

The 24-year-old joined the Bavarian giants from Athletic Bilbao in the summer for €40m (£32m).

"He has to adapt to his new surroundings a bit," Neuer is quoted as saying by Spox.

"The Spanish league is different to the Bundesliga. That's why people cannot expect too much from him right away. He will do a good job eventually, though.

"He's a very open guy and the good thing is that he speaks English pretty well for a Spaniard."

Bayern have won both games in the Bundesliga so far this season.
