Bastian Schweinsteiger looking forward to Manchester derby.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed his excitement about this weekend's derby against Manchester city at Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger will be featuring in his first Manchester derby since moving from Bayern Munich in the summer.

"I am definitely looking forward to the derby against City," he told United Review, reports. 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! [Laughs] 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.”
