Bayern's Martinez vows to return 'soon' from latest injury

MUNICH (AP) -- Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez says reports of another injury setback are exaggerated and that he will be back in action soon.

The Spain midfielder writes on Twitter "Thank you all for caring! fortunately it's not a serious injury (hashtag) Backsoon."

Sport1, Sky, Kicker and Sport Bild reported earlier Sunday that Martinez would be ruled out for several weeks with another knee injury.

Martinez had been the first replacement for Bayern's injured central defender Jerome Boateng, especially with Juan Bernat and Rafinha working their way back into form following their injury setbacks. Medhi Benatia is still working on his recovery and Holger Badstuber has to prove his long-term fitness.

Bayern meets Italian league leader Juventus for their Champions League last-16 match on Feb. 23 and March 16.
