German legend Basti Schweinsteiger was exiled from Manchester United’s first team and has been training alone following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager of the red devils.
In the summer but the midfielder returned to training this week with the first team while Manchester united are still hoping to offload the 32-year old in January.
The midfielder hasn’t played a single game for the red devils since Jose Mourinho arrived at the club but he was pictured training with members of the first team on Monday as united prepared for Thursday’s Europa league clash with Fenerbache.
Before United’s goalless draw on Saturday against Burnley, Manchester united informed its players that the German midfielder will return to training with the senior team and also return to the first team dressing room.
Despite training with the team ahead of Thursday’s Europa league game, Basti Schweinsteiger won’t be able to feature for Jose Mourinho’s team because the Portuguese boss omitted his name from United’s Europa league squad but he is eligible to feature for the red devils in the premier league.
United are keen on offloading the midfielder and a move to the MLS league in America is likely to go through when the MLS transfer window opens after the December 11 play-offs.
Manchester united defender Luke Shaw trained with the midfielder on Monday and admitted the team was happy to have Schweinsteiger back. “It’s great to train with him again.
Basti has a big influence over the youth players and also in the dressing room. He’s return is a boost for the team because he brings a lot of quality and experience to the team so we are all happy to have him back”…added the defender.
