Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed how his Manchester United team-mates are helping him settle following his £14.4m move from Bayern Munich - golf and restaurants.

The World Cup winner made his debut on Saturday, coming on as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Tottenham.

He was given a warm welcome by fans and has appeared at ease in his new surroundings. Talking to Manchester United's official website, he revealed how his team-mates have helped.

"They are helping me a lot and we do a lot of things together in our free time. My team-mates help me to choose restaurants, for example, and golf courses, something like this."

Despite enjoying his time off, Schweinsteiger is remaining focused on his football, adding: "But the most important thing is to be successful this season and to win the matches."


Schweinsteiger has moved to alleviate concerns over his fitness, claiming he will soon be fully fit.

"It’s fine. I had three or four days in America where I had this injury and it was not so good for my rhythm. Now I feel much better and also the game was very important to play 30 minutes. The training sessions are very important for me, too. I’m getting better and I hope I will be 100 per cent fit in the next week."
