Manchester United star signing Bastian Schweinsteiger is apparently not happy with the medical staff at the club and, as a result, has brought his old physiotherapist with him to the club.
Bastian Schweinsteiger joined Manchester United this summer from Bayern Munich for a bargain price of £14 million. The 31-year-old star midfielder has almost reached the twilight of his career as he is well past his glory days.
After the FIFA World Cup last summer, the German midfield maestro hardly featured in games for Bayern Munich as he remained out of action most of the times due to recurring injuries. Also, Pep Guardiola replaced Bastian by signing Xabi Alonso from Real Madrid. Thus, selling the German this season was never a tough decision for the Bundesliga champions.
Since joining the club this summer, Bastian Schweinsteiger has played just one full match for the Red Devils. He also got injured just after joining the club and thus he had missed the pre-seasons.
Louis van Gaal has so far has used the midfielder tactfully and never exposed him to the roughness of Premier League. Morgan Schneiderlin another new recruit this season has been regularly playing for the club as central defensive midfielder and Michael and Bastian Schweinsteiger has been utilised alternately by the Dutch manager.
But now as it looks, Bastian Schweinsteiger is not too happy with how his United career has gone so far. Reports are coming in that the continuous injury problems have irritated the midfielder and he is not too happy with the medical staff at United.
German Media reports suggest The former Bayern Munich player has brought over a physiotherapist who used to work for his former club. Fredi Binder left Bayern Munich at the same time as the club’s former doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt over a tussle with Pep Guardiola. Binder had been extremely popular among players, especially Schweinsteiger, and the physio’s healing hands have made their way to Manchester.
Binder has been staying at The Hilton hotel and treating Schweinsteiger at his home. It’s a good idea, it’ll help Schweinsteiger feel at home. He’s with someone who he trusts and someone who knows any previous problems the German has had. Hopefully, the Carrington medical staff won’t feel too pushed aside.
