Schweinsteiger: Man United can win titles this season


The former Bayern Munich midfielder believes that he is in a position to achieve instant success with his new club, having been impressed in his first week as a Red Devil

Bastian Schweinsteiger is confident that Manchester United have enough quality to win silverware this season.

The World Cup winner penned a three-year deal at Old Trafford on July 13, bringing an end to his long-standing association with Bayern Munich.

Having trained with his new team-mates for a week, the Germany international has been impressed with the talent on show, and believes that they can challenge for the title under Louis van Gaal.

“I have to say the quality is huge,” he told the club’s official website. “I am sure, with this team, it is possible to win titles and after a week I can say that.

“We have a good defence, we have good defensive players, and we have quality players who can make the difference in high-level matches.

“There are some guys who will come later so I think this team has a lot of possibilities and qualities.”

Schweinsteiger made his first United appearance in their 1-0 win against America in the International Champions Cup on Saturday, the 30-year-old playing the whole second half after replacing Michael Carrick.
