The turns that football can take. Throughout this summer there has been talk that Javi Martínez was going to leave Bayern and that Athletic could be one of his destinations to continue his career.
Even in recent days, some German media had already closed his career in the Bavarian team. He has been seen one day training outside the group and did not even appear in the traditional photo that the Munich club's squad was made on the occasion of Oktoberfest.
Tonight the final of the European Super Cup against Sevilla began on the bench, something already quite common in recent times for Aiegi, but the German coach, Hansi Flick, has decided to jump onto the field of play in the first part of extra time with 1-1 on the scoreboard, replacing Goretzka.
And shortly after, at the exit of a corner, Javi Martínez has managed to connect a header that has beaten Bono and has put the final 2-1 in score and giving his still team the trophy that pits the champion of the Champions against the winner of the Europa League.
In this way, Javi Martínez's Bayern adds its fourth title in 2020, after winning the Bundesliga, the German Cup, the Champions League and now the European Super Cup.
Will it be the last trophy for Javi Martínez with Bayern? We will have to keep waiting for events.
