Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw has revealed that he has been impressed by new arrival Bastian Schweinsteiger and he is convinced the German can help the club end their title drought.
The 31-year-old moved to Old Trafford this summer for £14.4million after spending his entire career to date in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.
The German international won 22 major honours during his time in Bavaria and he also helped his country secure World Cup glory in Brazil last summer.
As a result of his success Shaw, for one, is convinced his new team-mate’s experience will help the Red Devils challenge for honours.
He said: “He’s a massive legend. For someone with that much experience to come into the team will be vital to help us push for some trophies this season.”
The 20-year-old went on to praise the new arrival for how quickly he has settled into life at Old Trafford and he admitted that he has been impressed by the modesty of the highly decorated midfielder.
He continued: “He’s one of the most humble guys I’ve come across. He’s not too loud and he’s quite funny at the same time. It’s nice to have a German around in the dressing room.”
United have not won a major honour since they secured the Premier League title in 2013, but coach Louis van Gaal has invested heavily this summer to try and end that drought following the arrivals of five new players alongside Schweinsteiger.
The Red Devils will take on Tottenham at home on Saturday in their opening match of the new campaign and they have been installed as the 1.62 favourites to secure the three points, whilst the visitors are on offer at 5.50. The draw is available at 4.00.
