Bayern CEO: Louis Van Gaal Should Back Off Bastian Schweinsteiger and Trust Him

Bayern CEO: Louis Van Gaal Should Back Off Bastian Schweinsteiger and Trust Him

Bayern Munich’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has today leaped to the defence of Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, after Louis Van Gaal said he was unhappy with the German’s form.

Van Gaal had told the press that he was disappointed with Schweinsteiger and believes he could have performed better in every match so far this season.

Schweinsteiger left Bayern after seventeen years during the summer to sign for United and Rummenigge believes the United boss has to trust the veteran 31-year-old.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Rummenigge said: “I am a bit disappointed by Louis (van Gaal).

“He should leave Bastian alone. He wanted him very badly.”

Rummenigge, who made 310 appearances for Bayern as a player, added that Schweinsteiger needs more time to settle into the Premier League, before snapping about LVG’s personality:

“Bastian takes a bit of time (to get going). One should not pass judgement on him right now.

“Louis is known for not being the most likeable person.”

Schweinsteiger has made 11 appearances for United this season and has a pass success percentage of 86.4%.

However the retired German international has scored just one goal and is yet to create an assist for a teammate.
