Bastian Schweinsteiger on his debut and his fitness level


Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was happy with his debut after victory over Club America at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.

The 30-year-old became one of the Premier League's most interesting signings of the summer after he left Bayern Munich to move to Old Trafford.

He came on at half-time to assess his fitness level and get used to his new team-mates with Morgan Schneiderlin getting the only goal of the game.

"It was great," Schweinsteiger told Manchester United's official website.

"An absolutely great feeling to wear the jersey and I think we also played well and I am looking forward to playing more games, especially at Old Trafford.

"I was more excited and not so much nervous. I was excited to see how it is and also about my fitness.

"It was a good test for myself, to see how it is. I felt okay so that was a good sign.

"I felt quite sharp. In the last 10 minutes, it was a little bit harder to breath. But especially the first 30 to 35 minutes, I think, it was good."
