Bastian Schweinsteiger likened to Paul Scholes

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was likened to club legend Paul Scholes after the Red Devils' 3-0 victory over Ipswich Town in the Capital One Cup last night. 

Former Red Danny Higginbotham took to Twitter to suggest that the German international has similar attributes to the ex-England international.

Scholes, of course, was one of the best midfield players to don the United shirt - and Higginbotham believes Schweinsteiger is in a similar mould to the club-legend.

The former Bayern star has enjoyed a steady start to life in Manchester under the Louis van Gaal regime. 

He was certainly a joy to watch last night as the Red Devils cruised to victory, but will now be determined to kick on in the coming weeks of the season.

Huge role to play 

Ultimately, the signing of Schweinsteiger could prove a huge one for the club in their pursuit of success.

Ultimately, with the likes of Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay and Co. plying their trade for the club, the German international adds a great deal of experience and composure to the ranks. 

Alongside skipper Wayne Rooney, Schweinsteiger can help lead United to another successful period. He's slowly but surely becoming a real force in the middle of the park at Old Trafford, so don't be surprised to see him proving his credentials on a consistent basis sooner rather than later.

One thing is for sure, Van Gaal now has a number of wonderful options at his disposal in the midfield department.
