Manchester United Fans Are Ecstatic at Bastian Schweinsteiger Recall

Manchester United Fans Are Ecstatic at Bastian Schweinsteiger Recall

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho sprung a shock this afternoon after recalling Bastian Schweinsteiger to his squad for the game against West Ham – and United supporters are absolutely delighted about it.

The German World Cup-winning midfielder has been completely frozen out of the United first-team since Mourinho’s arrival in the summer, with the Portuguese coach seemingly hell-bent on refusing to select Schweinsteiger.

However, injuries in the centre of the pitch to the likes of Micheal Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin has left a gap for a central midfielder, and Schweinsteiger has been training away in the background just waiting for an opportunity:

Despite playing excellently against Feyenoord in midweek, Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also drop to the bench, with United not in a position to drop any more points in the Premier League.

Whether or not Schweinsteiger actually gets any game time is another matter, but his inclusion defeinitely improved the mood of fans on social media:

The more he hasn’t played, the more popular he seems to have gotten, eh?
