Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger knows he will never match Usain Bolt but has insisted he is not as slow as some have claimed.

Schweinsteiger, 31, has struggled to produce his best form since joining Manchester United from Bayern Munich in July.
The midfielder, who starred for Joachim Low’s national team as they won the biggest prize in international football during the showcase tournament in Brazil, appears to be struggling to cope with the physicality of England’s top flight.
The former Champions League winner, though, has insisted his struggles have been exaggerated and is adamant he is still able to compete in the Premier League.
“Honestly, I am not impressed by the criticism that has been brought up [over] me via the media,” he was quoted as saying by German publication Welt am Sonntag.
“I am currently playing on a level that is comparable to that during the World Cup [in] 2014.

“‘Old man’s football’ – that is an expression that was used back then, too. After the World Cup final those voices went silent.
“I will never be able to compete with Usain Bolt,” he added, referring to the Jamaican sprinter.
