Bastian Schweinsteiger has earned a playful nickname off his Manchester United team-mates that emphasises just how highly regarded he is at the club.

The Old Trafford faithful have described the midfielder as their 'German football maestro', but Schweinsteiger has acquired a more candid nickname from his fellow players.

The German international is simply known as 'Mr. Calm' amongst the ranks under Louis van Gaal, according to the Daily Mirror, owed to his composed and influential performances on the pitch.

After his amazing £6.3 million arrival from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, the 31-year-old has brought a calming influence as a substitute in victories over Spurs, Aston Villa and in the Champions League play-off matches against Club Brugge.

The no.31 made a superb pass for Spaniard Ander Herrera's goal in Bruges, which was acknowledged heartily by the squad who all hurried over to congratulate Schweinsteiger on the incredible assist.

The experienced midfielder was also essential to United's weekend victory over fierce rivals Liverpool, largely controlling the midfield and dictating from a deep-lying role.

Despite Schweinsteiger's consistent presence on the pitch, though, the German is yet to register a shot on target, let alone score his first goal in a United shirt.

Regardless of this fact, however, it is very clear that he has strengthened a United squad that was desperately in need of some composure and control in their play, and will only but get better with game time in a bid to achieve full fitness.
