Ouch! Mario Mandzukic NAILS Bastian Schweinsteiger in Bayern Munich training [video]
- February 27, 2014
Bayern Munich are 19 points clear in the Bundesliga and appear to be cruising against Arsenal in the Champions League.
Similarly, their form in the DFB Pokal has been similarly dominant.
Perhaps the only thing that can stop Bayern Munich from another treble is dissent in the ranks which makes this video so curious.
At an open training session yesterday, Mario Mandzukic launched a shocking tackle on Bastian Schweinsteiger which left the German international writhing in pain on the turf.
Bayern Munich assistant coach Hermann Gerland came along to break things up and physios had to be called to deal with Schweinsteiger.
The German midfielder has suffered with a right ankle problem all season so pretty much the only positive from this whole episode was that Schweinsteiger was clutching his left.
Bild report that Schweinsteiger was able to practice free-kicks later on in the training session and no long term damage was caused.
