Munich - Bastian Schweinsteiger has spoken for the first time about his decision to swap boyhood club FC Bayern München for Manchester United FC.
Unsurprisingly, the Germany captain's thank you letter (he also posted a video message in his mother tongue) prompted a heartfelt response from a number of his Bayern team-mates...
Translation: Dear Basti, good luck in Manchester. I'll miss you in the dressing room and on the pitch.
Translation: Thanks Basti
Translation: Thanks Basti and good luck!!
Translation: It's a shame you're going, but obviously all the best! Bayern will miss you!
