Picture: Manchester United’s forgotten star man returns to first-team training

Manchester United Football Club haven’t had the best of luck recently, with Jose Mourinho’s men struggling to another hapless 0-0 draw at home to Burnley. In the aftermath, the manager has certainly shaken things up in training, with the timely return to first-team training of one midfielder in particular…

That man back in action is obviously Bastian Schweinsteiger, with the German legend training with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ashley Young for the first time of the season – but why has Jose decided to recall him now?

Will he play anytime soon? Probably not due to the lack of fitness, but it just doesn’t make sense. Perhaps it’s down to injuries protruding through the squad right now, but that’s just offensive to the German legend who hasn’t said a peep about the situation since Jose Mourinho took charge.

At the end of the day, it’s just great to see him back involved with the lads. I don’t see why he cannot train with them whether he plays or not, he deserves to be respected for everything he has done in football.
