Wayne Rooney delighted to play with Bastian Schweinsteiger

The German international sealed a big move to Manchester United a few days back and the club’s captain is delighted to have linked up with the former Bayern Munich man

The arrival of Schweinsteiger clearly means that Louis van Gaal will leave nothing to chance as he looks to guide Manchester United to a title winning campaign next season. And Wayne Rooney, who has played against the World Cup winner on numerous occasions for both club and country, is confident that the midfielder is the type of player the Red Devils really need to have in the squad.

“Bastian is a very experienced player who has won everything in the game and it’s great that he has chosen to join us and left a team like Bayern Munich to come here,” he told MUTV.

“Bastian speaks very good English so that’s a boost for the squad, too. He’s a fantastic player, he’s shown that over the years and it’s great that we’ve got him and I’m sure he’ll be a good player for us.”
