Schweinsteiger and wife welcomed in Chicago by excited crowd

Bastian Schweinsteiger

"I need to have more training sessions to have the right rhythm".

When Schweini was paraded by new club Chicago Fire on Wednesday following his high-profile move from Manchester United, he was asked by a local reporter if he thought his new club could win the World Cup.

Let me re-phrase, do you think now that you're here, Bastian, that a World Cup goal for Chicago Fire is a realistic one?

But the former German worldwide, who did win the World Cup in 2014 in Brazil, styled it out and overlooked the odd question by stating he wants to help the people of Chicago enjoy soccer.

"We have not only a world-class player, but a world-class man".

But despite his difficulties during his time at Old Trafford, Schweinsteiger remained hugely popular among United players and fans.

I wonder, with your addition to this team, is it a fair expectation to see a clear pathway towards a World Cup competition to come out of Chicago?.

Pacers waive Rodney Stuckey, reportedly looking to bring back Lance Stephenson
That injury probably sealed the decision, but the Pacers were always likely to consider waiving Stuckey before April 10. Stephenson was a deft ball-handler and capable playmaker for the dominant Pacers teams between 2012 and 2014.

"My head is more than 100%".

"I can feel there is something going on and I want to help this club". "Even if it is against the best team in the world, anything is possible".

Paunovic revealed he met Schweinsteiger in Manchester previous year, where they spoke about football in America - but the player himself said he did not have time to say bye to his United friends.

"It was not so easy because the decision was a bit late so I couldn't say a proper goodbye to the team", Schweinsteiger said.

"But I wanted the focus on the team and the game and I am happy that they won".

"I had a great time there, especially with the team-mates and the staff there, it was a good time and I enjoyed it there".
