Pep Guardiola on Bastian Schweinsteiger and Pedro's future


Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says new Manchester United signing Bastian Schweinsteiger will be a success at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old left the German giants to sign for the Red Devils for a reported fee of £14.4m.

And if he stays injury free, he will be one of this season's highlights in the English Premier League according to the Spaniard.

"Basti, when he has no little problems with his little injuries like he's had in the last three years, I am completely convinced he will do very, very, very well at Manchester United. He's a top top player," Guardiola is quoted as saying by Goal.

"Unfortunately the last three years he's had problems with his injuries and was never in good physical condition.

"But when he's in good condition he's a bigger star and so he's going to play really good there. And I hope that's going to happen."

Asked to make a comment on Barcelona winger Pedro, he added: "I heard rumors but I don't know how the situation is going.

"If I would be Barcelona coach I could comment something about that but I don't know.

"In terms of his skills, there is no doubt, he is a World Cup champion, European Cup champion, Champions League champion. And he has played millions of games with Barcelona, so when you have played millions of games with Barcelona, you can play wherever you want in the world.

"I don't know how that situation is going, I just wish the best to him staying or leaving Barcelona, I wish the best to him because is a great person and player."
