Bastian Schweinsteiger Manchester United TEAMtalk
Bastian Schweinsteiger insists that Manchester United are capable of winning the Champions League and says he feels “very comfortable” at Old Trafford.
The German scored the last time Old Trafford hosted a game in Europe’s premier competition – against United in a 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in 2014 – and he believes United should fear no one on their home turf.”I remember when I came here first time with Bayern, it wasn’t an easy first 10 minutes. It’s not easy to play here first time, especially in the Champions League,” he said.

“You can feel the power of the supporters. It’s good for us but we have to play well.

“I feel very comfortable here, especially when we have matches here. It’s a big stadium, a big honour to play for United in that stadium, especially in the Champions League.

“Yes, I think we have the strength to win the Champions League. But we have to do our work. We lost the match at PSV last time out, so we have to win our games at home, take it step by step.

“The team spirit is our main strength.”

However, having lost their first game in the group stage, United are likely to first need to get a result against Wolfsburg at Old Trafford.

It’s a game Schweinsteiger is looking forward to: “I scored my first goal away at Wolfsburg so I have good memories but it’s not easy to play against them, it’s always tough.

“They have a great team, they’ve improved a lot in the last few years. I have some friends in the team, especially Dante, so I’m looking forward to seeing them.”
