Bastian Schweinsteiger has spoken about his start to life at Manchester United, claiming that he has settled in well, despite none of his teammates speaking German.

The whole club, the people are very friendly and helpful. And of course my teammates have made it easy for me. I know the manager and staff. OK, nobody really speaks German except the staff, but it was not a problem for me. I’m at an age where I can learn and handle it. It was very easy and I feel very comfortable here, especially when we have matches at Old Trafford. it’s a big stadium and a big honour to play here for United, especially in the Champions League.
