Bastian Schweinsteiger excited about "special" Manchester derby

Bastian Schweinsteiger says that he cannot wait to play in Sunday's Manchester derby.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has claimed that he is relishing this Sunday's derby clash against Manchester City at Old Trafford.

The German World Cup winner spent 17 years playing for Bayern Munich, so will experience his first Manchester derby as he joined the Red Devils in the summer transfer window.

"I am definitely looking forward to the derby against City," Schweinsteiger told United Review. "I think it is something very special and we should be very happy that we have two big clubs in one city that are also playing in the Champions League.

"I remember when I was in Munich we were always looking for that, but the other team at 1860 Munich didn't play so well. We were always looking for a derby but it was sadly not possible. Here, we can play lots of derbies and I am very happy about that."

Meanwhile, manager Louis van Gaal has labelled City favourites for the tie.
