He may well be a Champions League winner, a Bundesliga octo-champ and a Weltmeister, but it would appear that Bastian Schweinsteiger isn’t quite what you’d call a household name across the pond just yet.

Indeed, the ex-Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder was politely asked by a lady at Toronto Airport if he’d kindly take a photo of her posing with the rest of his Chicago Fire teammates.

The scene was captured by Fire’s assistant head coach Eric Gehrig, who quipped: “This poor lady asked for a picture with the Chicago Fire players… if she only knew!”

Still, she managed to get a lovely memento of the day she met… those guys.

Imagine being that clueless, eh?

    Americans just can win with you people at Pies. Did it ever occur to you that maybe she was just a Fire fan through and through and already loved “those guys?” It’s not like their fans are bandwagoners, what with entirely lacking a bandwagon…

    This is in Toronto, so they’re Canadian and probably not a Chicago fan. Also… cmon. If you’re getting a picture with the team you do it with the most famous (and possibly best) player. Probably figured he was a coach with the grey hair
