Watch: Painfully Awkward Question At Schweinsteiger's First US Press Conference

Watch: Painfully Awkward Question At Schweinsteiger's First US Press Conference
By Mikey Traynor

Bastian Schweinsteiger has left Manchester United to join MLS side Chicago Fire, and has done so leaving fond memories behind him despite playing very little football at all.

He will hopefully seeing more action on the pitch than on Instagram at his new club, and they are certainly very excited to see him come in as hundreds of fans gave him an excellent reception at Chicago's O'Hare airport.

His first press conference in the US was held today, and it went well for the most part, with one excruciatingly awkward moment unfortunately popping up and going viral.

Schweinsteiger was left confused after a US journalist asked him if he thought winning a second World Cup was possible with the Chicago Fire...

After much confusion and a few cracked smiles, the question was then "rephrased" and asked the same way again. You can see the hear the German mutter 'He said World Cup?' under his breath in disbelief.

Painful.

The officials claiming it was the Club World Cup, then needing to explain the difference between the World Cup and the Club World Cup was particularly tough to take.

Considering no MLS side has ever won the Club World Cup, or even qualified for it since the year 2000, it was a ridiculous question anyway.

Poor Basti doesn't know what he's got himself in for.
