Manchester United recruit Bastian Schweinsteiger insisted he is fully fit and ready to lead the club to glory, after overcoming his injury problems.
Schweinsteiger was unveiled as a United player on a three-year contract on Monday following his transfer from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
The 30-year-old Germany captain arrives at Old Trafford with question marks over his fitness.
Schweinsteiger was limited to just 15 Bundesliga starts last season after helping Germany win the 2014 World Cup, but he told MUTV: “Everything is fine and I’m looking forward to giving my best for Manchester United and I’m really happy to be here.
“Of course, I had a tough World Cup so after that I was injured until I think end of October.
“But then I had great weeks and months with Bayern, I was not injured and I am feeling great now at the moment.”
Schweinsteiger added: “I’m here to win titles and that’s what United is used to, too. I’m looking forward to playing in the jersey.
“I know him [manager Louis Van Gaal], so it was a little bit easier, but it’s not about him, it’s more about the club, such a big club with tradition and, with this quality in the team, we can win titles next season.
“I’m looking forward to that moment in the jersey and to play for the team and the great supporters.”
