The German footballer played for Bayern Munich and Manchester United, but he doesn’t seem himself playing for other clubs in Europe.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is currently playing for Chicago Fire in the Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States.

And he’s enjoying his time there, saying he doesn’t see playing once again in Europe, where he played for two giants: Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

“I did not want to go elsewhere in Europe,” he was quoted by Goal.

“FC Bayern and Manchester United were the clubs I always wanted to play for.”

He also compared life in Europe and the United States: “You do not have as many game weeks as in England and not the same level as Europe.”

“Sometimes you need a bit of patience.”

“[Punctuality] is not taken so seriously. If the meeting starts at 6 o’clock and the last player comes in at 6.10 o’clock in the cabin, that is quite normal,” he said.

“I usually do it in the autumn when I decide how to go on.”

“That’s the way it will be,” he continued.

“I’m still a player. I really appreciate that Bayern says such things about me.”

“The question is always when, how, and where [he will take the next step in his career],” the player concluded.
