Sami Khedira Wants Manchester United to Show Schweinsteiger Respect

Former Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes that Manchester United should show more respect to midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Manager José Mourinho has frozen out the midfielder without giving out proper reasons. This has been surprising especially given that Schweinsteiger is a World Cup winner and is regarded as one of the finest midfielders in the world. Even though he is at 32 years of age and struggled with injuries last season, it would not be a reason to leave out a top midfielder from the first team squad. Schweinsteiger has been training alone or with the reserve team since the start of the season.

Even though recently the midfielder was included in the Premier League squad, it is largely seen as the result of players like Anthony Martial being included in the under-23 list. Once upon a time, Khedira was linked with a move to Manchester United as they searched hard for a defensive midfielder. However, a major injury just before the start of the World Cup 2014 ruined his chances of a move but then the chance of joining Juventus came up. The German joined the Italian outfit on a free transfer and he has already won the league title in his first season at the club.

United are reportedly trying to offload Schweinsteiger and save on the £190,000 per week wages.”I would never be in a situation that a club asks me to leave.A player with a great career does not deserve to eventually be told: ‘Hey, you’re off.’I think the situation in Manchester is a shame, because Bastian is a player I’ve really looked up to.At the World Cup in 2010 he was very important for me. He was the boss, I was young and learned a lot playing next to him. And then he went on to be a great captain,” said Khedira.
