Sch­weinie happy to please his fans

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

Bas­tian Sch­we­in­steiger ap­pears to be the po­litest chap in world foot­ball, he wasn’t even rude to the reporter who asked him on his ar­rival in Amer­ica if he could help Chicago Fire win the World Cup.

And he wasn’t rude ei­ther to the woman at Toronto air­port last week who greeted the ar­riv­ing Chicago Fire play­ers and asked if she could have a photo taken with them.

And who did she ask to take the pic? Yes, Bas­tian Sch­we­in­steiger. Not only did he take the photo, he did it with a smile. Not a sin­gle cry of “do you know who I am?” Mind you, she’d prob­a­bly have replied, “the physio?”
