Schweinsteiger wrote:"They're both terrific players, no question about that. But I regard myself as a little bit different, especially in physical terms," Schweinsteiger was quoted as saying on the official Bayern website.

"I do win a few balls in the air, simply due to my physical stature. And I also come up with different solutions compared to them.
Xavi wrote:"Talent is the decisive factor in football, much more than physical presence. I'm convinced that it's technical quality that makes the difference," Xavi was quoted as saying by Sport.

"Back in 2002-03, people told me that I wasn't suited to play in the centre of the pitch as you needed to be physically strong. I have shown you don't need yo be a physical player to be a top midfielder."

In reply to Schweinsteiger.

When you go to ground at the slightest touch and Ref's are prepared to give you fouls for it all day long then you don't need physical presence.

Xavi has a point though.

But not every team plays like Barca.

Majority of clubs' tactics rely on physical game.

Xavi is more physical than he thinks. People think that physique only includes height and strength. But stamina, speed, balance are also physical attributes.

Xavi is slow and short, but he has enormous stamina (he is always the man who runs the most every match) and balance (can turn like few people while harassed). He is not strong, but he is not weak either.

Schweinsteiger tackles a hell lot more than Xavi, so physique helps. Free_cat made a great point, physique is exaggerated and Schweinsteiger doesn't have enourmous strength but does have 4 lungs, which IMO is much more important for the role.
