German midfielder bows out from international football


German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has retired from international football, he announced on Friday, saying he was disappointed to have not finished his career with a win at Euro 2016 in France. “It wasn’t to be and I have to accept it. “The historic and emotional high was winning the World Cup in 2014,” he said.

However, since the arrival of Jose Mourinho he has been the subject of speculation for a move away from Old Trafford and reports have that the Red Devils are welcoming offers for the 31-year-old.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder trained on his own since returning from his honey moon as the full squad trained together for the first time. Schweinsteiger was signed for £14.4million a year ago after spending 13 years at the Bundeliga with Bayern Munich and he is now one of the nine players asked to leave the club.

The German was restricted to 31 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils and just seven of United’s final 34 games all through 12 months at Old Trafford.
