Schweinsteiger: Mourinho didn’t force me out of Manchester United

Chicago Fire midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed that former manager Jose Mourinho didnt force him out of Manchester United.

The 32-year-old, was bought from Bayern Munich by then-manager Louis van Gaal in 2015 and finished his United career under the Dutchman’s successor Jose Mourinho.


The World Cup winner with Germany, who sat down for an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, spent a somewhat disappointing two years at Old Trafford, making 18 appearances and scoring just once.


The Bayern legend was also adamant that his freeze out was not fitness related nor Mourinho’s decision.

“It was not that part. It was something different,” he said. “[The decision not to play me] was maybe made by someone else without him so I think after I trained and I played and you could see me and how I behave as a professional and he has a different opinion, so it was a little bit unfortunate.

“I think [it would be different] if we would have met in a different situation.”
