Pep Confirms Search For Martinez Replacement

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the club will find a replacement for Javi Martinez before the transfer window closes.
 
Martinez has been ruled out until 2015, after suffering knee ligament damage in Wednesday's Super Cup loss to Borussia Dortmund.
 
And the former Barcelona boss says the Spain international will be missed but admits the replacement could cost a little.
 
"He was in outstanding form," the Catalan coach told Bild. 
 
"We will miss him very much.
 
"We certainly need a new player. We still have 15 days and will respond."
 
"We are looking for a young player," he stated. "He shall have to be big, at least 1.95 meters tall, fast, strong in the air.
 
"He should also be good with both his right and left foot, and flexible ... And cost little!
 
"But we are perhaps a little late."
