Schweinsteiger: I couldn't say proper goodbye to Man Utd...

Bastian Schweinsteiger was unveiled by MLS side Chicago Fire as their marquee player on Wednesday.

The former Germany international quit Manchester United following an 18-month spell to join the MLS side on a free transfer.

The 32-year-old is looking forward to his time in the United States, but he revealed that he is regretting not saying 'a proper goodbye' to his former United teammates.

He said: "It was not so easy because the decision was a bit late so I couldn't say a proper goodbye to the team.

"Also they had a match away – I can't remember – so I couldn't really tell them because I didn't want the focus on me, but on the team.

"I had a great time there, especially with the team-mates and the staff there."
