Ni hao, Shanghai! Javi Matínez and FC Bayern crew landed at precisely 15:00 local time (09:00 CEST) on Monday. After flying for nearly ten and a half hours from Munich to the Chinese metropolis of 24 million people, the record German champions reached the first stop of this year’s Audi Summer Tour. Martínez and CO were greeted by loud chants of ‘Super Bayern’ by hundreds of enthusiastic fans.
After the arrival and immigration procedures, the team headed to the city centre where they’ll be staying. Coach Carlo Ancelotti will hold a gentle training session in the early evening to shake off the jet lag.
