The Chelsea legend spent two seasons at New York City at the end of his career, scoring 15 goals in 31 appearances, but failing to lead them to MLS Cup glory.
He probably won’t go down as a New York legend in the future given his short stay in America.
But Lamps was also a success, particularly in his second campaign, so knows how to make it in the league.
So Schweinsteiger should feel confident after Lampard tipped him to be a success with Chicago:
Schweinsteiger has now joined up with his Fire team-mates and should be involved when they play against Montreal Impact on Saturday.
After finishing last in the MLS in the previous campaign, Chicago desperately have to improve and Schweinsteiger should help them do that.
He’s a World Cup winner and has achieved success at every club he’s played for, but you get the feeling this will be his toughest challenge yet.
