Schweinsteiger ALREADY fed up with quality of MLS – just two months after United exit

Date Posted,May 8, 2017

Bastian Schweinsteiger is already fed up with the low standard of the MLS in comparison to the Premier League .

Germany international Schweinsteiger moved Stateside in March after being frozen out by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season.

Schweinsteiger has played six times, netting twice, but admits the quality is much poorer than he is used to in England and Germany.

The 32-year-old’s Chicago Fire are winless in three games – with a 2-2 draw with LA Galaxy on the Sunday the most recent game without victory.

“Chicago Fire finished as the bottom club in the previous two seasons and I did not expect that we’d win every match and finish on top by a mile,” Schweinsteiger told Suddeutsche Zeitung.

“One player’s influence in football is not as big as in other sports, it’s 11 players vs. 11 players. And we didn’t play all that bad until now and were pretty much on [the same] level in our losses to Toronto and New York Red Bulls. But we still have a lot of work to do.
