Bastian Schweinsteiger joined the academy division of Bayern Munich back on July of 1998 and from there on out, the German midfielder went on to make over 300 appearances for the club with various pieces of silverware being lifted along the way including 8 Bundesliga and 1 UEFA Champions League trophy just to name a few of the more renowned titles.
After his spell with Bayern Munich ended on 2015, Schweinsteiger joined Manchester United where he performed in for 2 years before eventually making a move to another continent as the German veteran joined his latest and current club Chichago Fire.
With so much time spent performing in different leagues, Bastian Schweinsteiger has recently talked about the differences that exist from performing in the American League, the MLS and Europe.
‘’If you compare it to Bayern Munich or the national team Germany, the difference is huge but I knew what I let myself in for. The league is interesting because it’s evident everyone can beat everyone. And sometimes things happen you just don’t understand’’
“Not everything is seen that happens on the pitch, the teammate in a good position, where it might get dangerous, how a situation develops. Too many balls are lost as well but that’s normal. If this were not the case, the people would not play in the United States but rather in the Bundesliga, Premier League or La Liga. Still, MLS has potential, a lot of potential.” Bastian Schweinsteiger said.
During the 2016 edition of the Major League season, Chicago Fire finished at the very bottom of the Eastern Conference with only 7 wins from 34 matches and they could only accumulate 31 points in that campaign which was the lowest amount of points that any club gathered from that specific season and Bastian Schweinsteiger is hoping that he can help Chicago Fire in improving.
