With eight Bundesliga titles, the Champions League and World Cup on his CV, as well as another eight major honours, Schweinsteiger is a man whose words carry great weight and the 31-year-old speaks with authority when quizzed specifically on two of Louis van Gaal’s six summer signings.
United will now be aiming to claim victory in their second match when they lock horns with Wolfsburg on October 1 at Old Trafford. The manager has revealed that Schweinsteiger is also a very influential player off the pitch, and an example for the younger players to follow. If they make the right decisions and take the right steps in the future, then they can give a lot of power to Manchester United. “That is what’s most important, and with the quality they can achieve a lot”.
Wolfsburg were runners-up to Schweinsteiger’s Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last season, and also lifted the German Cup.
And on the change Le Tissier told Sky Sports: “It seemed to me that when they took Schweinsteiger off in midfield United just started to lose a bit of control in the game“.
France defender Eliaquim Mangala, 24, has warned his Manchester City team-mates they are under huge pressure to improve on their poor Champions League record.
According OptaStats, Wolfsburg come into the game having lost all three of their trips to England in European competition, with the Bundesliga side conceding eight goals during that run.
The 19-year-old moved to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day and has already made a significant impression on the Premier League with a few sublime performances. “It’s a lot of fun to play fun the Premier League“.
“I used to love writing poems, even before I was with Coleen”, Rooney said.
