Bastian Schweinsteiger is settling nicely into his new surroundings at Chicago Fire, but some St Pauli fans want to see the German star back in his native land.

A return to Germany is unlikely in the immediate future as Schweinsteiger gets to grips with Major League Soccer, but that hasn't stopped young supporters of the Freibeuter from dreaming.

"This is a question I always wanted to ask: Try to loan Schweinsteiger," said a young fan. 

Lienen responded with a question of his own: "Schweinsteiger? Do you think he still can do it?"
