Just a couple of days after signing for MLS club Chicago Fire, Bastian Schweinsteiger not only made his debut, but he also scored, helping his team to a 2-2 home draw against Montreal Impact.
Despite his goal and the overall remarkable performance though, the ex-Bayern and Man Utd midfielder told reporters after the game that he was “a little bit sad for not winning”.
Playing and scoring was a good feeling, but I’m a little bit sad and not so happy that we couldn’t win the game. We can improve. We had good chances actually. We have to finish a little bit better
‘Schweini’ said. The German scored with a brilliant header early in the game, and had at least half a dozen clinical passes that could have led to more goals for Chicago, if only his teammates had showed some ‘killer-instinct’.
As for the overall level of MLS, Chicago Fire’s number 31 avoided voicing a clear opinion, focusing on his own team instead.
It’s intense, but it’s not easy after one match to talk about the level of the MLS. I’m more focused on our game. I want that we improve, we control the games, that we are effective, that we use our chances, that we stay compact
were the vastly experienced German’s words.
