Manchester United Football Club made the move to bring in Bastian Schweinsteiger to Old Trafford last summer, with the fans very excited about bringing in a midfielder of his calibre. However, sadly, it hasn’t quite gone to plan.
Despite a strong start, the second half of the season was plagued massively by injury and the midfielder didn’t take to the field from February onwards in the red of United.
The 31-year old then made it back to action in time to be part of Germany’s European Championship’s squad.
After a couple of suspensions for Jogi Loew’s side, many thought Schweinsteiger would get his first start of the tournament. That is no longer likely to happen according to the highly reliable injury experts, Physio Room. They say that Schweinsteiger has tweaked knee ligaments – which could potentially be a very serious injury.
