In an interview with United Review, summer signing and Champions League winner Bastian Schweinsteiger has said he will do his best to guide United’s young talents in the competition.
Schweinsteiger won the Champions League with Bayern in 2013 and has over 130 appearances on the elite level.
United host their first Champions League home game of Louis van Gaal reign, as the team littered with youthful prospects looks to make a mends for their 2-1 defeat away to PSV.
Speaking to United’s in-house publication, the World Cup winner spoke about the honour of playing in Europe’s elite competition.
“I have played a lot of matches at that level and it is always a little bit different to league matches.
“It is always a special night when you walk onto the field and the anthem comes on.
“It is a big honour to play Champions League games, so I will try to give my best and try to help my younger team-mates.”
With Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial and Andres Pereira putting in impressive performances over the last few weeks, United’s future looks promising, and getting Champions League games under their belt early can only help their development.
