Bastian Schweinsteiger officially unveiled

German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was officially unveiled by his new club the Chicago Fire on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old World Cup winner, who joined United at the start of last season, ended a difficult spell under coach Jose Mourinho, having fallen out of favour since the Portuguese arrived at the club at the start of the current campaign.

Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons with Bayern Munich before joining United, winning eight Bundesliga titles, seven German Cups and the Champions League in 2013.

He was also part of the 2014 World Cup-winning squad and represented his country 121 times before announcing his international retirement last July.
