Schweinsteiger not giving up on Man United

German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger said yesterday that Manchester United would be his "last club in Europe" and vowed to fight for his place in the team.

Schweinsteiger, 32, has been frozen out by new United manager Jose Mourinho and is yet to make a competitive appearance this season.

But, with the close of the transfer window just a week away, he told fans in a statement posted on Twitter that he has no desire to leave Old Trafford.

"MUFC will be my last club in Europe," Schweinsteiger wrote. "I respect other clubs, but Manchester United were the only ones who could make me leave Bayern Munich. I will be ready, if the team need me.

"This is all I can say about the current situation. I want to thank the fans for the amazing support over the recent weeks." - AFP.
