Manchester United’s first team has seen an attacking overhaul take place this summer. Players like Javier Hernández, Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Ángel Di María all left Old Trafford. But, Louis van Gaal recruited top prospects to fill the void.
Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial, two of the most talented young players in the world, have made an instant impact at United, and both have a firm grasp on their first team spots.
Manchester United also hired world class experience to bolster the team in the last transfer window. Bundesliga, World Cup and Champions League winner Bastian Schweinsteiger was brought in from Bayern Munich.
Schweinsteiger has achieved so much in his prestigious career and has said that he wants to help Manchester United’s young stars fulfil their potential by helping them in whatever way he can.
Speaking to United Review, the German World Cup winner said this about United’s young talents:
“I will try to guide them, of course.”
“I have played a lot of matches at that level and it is always a little bit different to Premier League and Bundesliga games.”
“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.”
Having trained and played alongside Martial and Depay, Schweinsteiger has seen first hand the talent that they both posses. He continued by saying:
“They are both very young but both very talented.”
“If they make the right decisions and take the right steps in the future, then they can give a lot of power to Manchester United.”
“For me, the most important thing is that they have a good personality and a good character, and they do!”
“That is what’s most important, and with the quality they can achieve a lot.”
Bastian Schweinsteiger had an incredible game against VfL Wolfsburg but was taken off with 20 minutes to go as Louis van Gaal thought that he looked tired.
