Manchester United’s newest recruit Bastian Schweinsteiger has said recently in an interview that he is not worried about his injury concerns. The German international had suffered an injury during World Cup which forced him to remain out of action for almost half of the season.

The midfield maestro recently completed a move to Old Trafford signing a three year deal with the Premier League giants.

Speaking to MUTV : “Of course, I had a tough World Cup so after that I was injured until I think end of October.

“But then I had great weeks and months with Bayern, I was not injured and I am feeling great now at the moment.

“Everything is fine and I’m looking forward to giving my best for Manchester United and I’m really happy to be here.”

Schweinsteiger has been an integral part of Bayern Munich since 2004. He has won several trophies with the club and he also played under current United manager Louis van Gaal.

The midfielder further added: “Manchester United is a big club with a lot of tradition and it’s exactly what I wanted. We have the same philosophy.

“I’m here to win titles and that’s what United is used to, too. I’m looking forward to playing in the jersey. It was one of my dreams in my career to be here in Manchester and play for United.

“I know him (Van Gaal), so it was a little bit easier, but it’s not about him, it’s more about the club, such a big club with tradition and, with this quality in the team, we can win titles next season.

“I’m looking forward to that moment in the jersey and to play for the team and the great supporters.

“Every time you play here – I think I’ve played twice at Old Trafford – it was always an unbelievable atmosphere.

“I remember we lost 3-2 here but we moved on to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and after the game, the supporters gave us applause.

“So they are very respectful and I like that a lot, and I am looking forward to playing for the club, but especially for the supporters.”

He continued: “I’ve watched a lot of the Premier League. There were some German players playing here. Lukas Podolski, who was at Arsenal, is a friend of mine, and we talked about the Premier League.

“Every game is interesting and every game is tough, so I’m looking forward to playing those games at that high level, and I think we have a good team and can do a great job.”
