Manchester United's latest summer acquisition Bastian Schweinsteiger has made it clear that he left Bayern Munich for Old Trafford to win titles and be successful with the Red Devils.
The German World Cup winner, who arrived from the Bundesliga champions in early July, is confident that he can contribute a lot to the team and believes that despite struggling with injuries over the last year, he can benefit the team with his vast experience of playing at the highest level for the Bavarian giants.
Schweinsteiger is currently with United on their pre-season tour of the US and will be hoping to make his debut when the 20-time English champions take on Club Americas in their opening encounter of the International Champions' Cup.
"That is my goal for my time here. I want to win titles and this is what Manchester United is used to and I am the same. I cannot guarantee titles but I will guarantee that we will do everything to be successful in the season," Schweinsteiger said, according to the Daily Mail.
"I want to make a positive impact. I think I can contribute a lot to the team."
"I am 30. It is a challenge for me to prove I can do it here. I had my knee trouble after the World Cup which was very intensive for me and I had a break at October."
"But I have a lot of experience in big matches and that is an advantage. I am confident I can adjust to the Premier League. My style of play is to control a game," the former Bayern star added.
"You have to be smart in your brain and fast. For me it is very important to control a situation in defence. You can always score goals but you have to add stability in the defence."
The 30-year-old midfielder revealed that he had a chance to join the Red Devils in 2010, but admitted that it was his desire to win the Champions League with his boyhood club that prevented him from making the switch to England. However, with his brother being an avid United fan, Schweinsteiger insists that it has always been a dream to play for the Old Trafford club.
"I had the chance to join United in 2010. I thought about what to do. There were opportunities. But my goal was always to win the Champions League with my club Bayern Munich. Now I am happy to be here."
"My brother is a huge Manchester United fan. He is a big Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs fan. It was always a dream to be a Manchester United player," the Germany skipper explained.
