Bastian Schweinsteiger revealed that he was banned from the Man Utd dressing room on his birthday. He revealed that he was hurt when asked to train with the reserves by Jose Mourinho. The German stalwart moved to Manchester to reunite with Louis Van Gaal and featured 31 times for the club while winning the FA Cup.
“It was very strange on my birthday I came to the dressing room wanted to change but then someone told me I’m not allowed to go into the dressing room and I had to change in the dressing room and had to play with the second team,” Bastian Schweinsteiger said about his Man Utd exile. “I was very hurt because no one was talking to me. Then I was speaking to Mourinho about it and he explained something to me something which I really did not understand and it had to do with the second injury that I got.”
“My first injury I got the season before I got treated by the medical department of United and then in an easy training session I got the same injury so I asked Louis Van Gaal if I could get treated in Germany because we had the Euros in 2016 coming up and it was always agreed to that,” he added. “So I did that, I was fit, I played the Euros, I was looking forward to coming to United to play with Mourinho who twice actually wanted to buy me with Inter Milan in 2010 and then later on at Madrid.”
