Signed from Bayern Munich last summer, Bastian Schweinsteiger’s first season in the Premier League has been plagued by injury.
The Manchester United midfielder has made only 13 Premier League starts and manager Louis van Gaal today confirmed the 31-year-old would miss the rest of the season through injury.
World Cup winner and German National team captain Bastian Schweinsteiger should still be fit for the Euros, according to Louis van Gaal.
The news was met with sadness by many Manchester United fans on social media but plenty decided to take their frustration out on the cool-headed German midfielder.
Bastian Schweinsteiger has struggled to make an impact in his first season at Old Trafford but has two years remaining on his three year deal.
He hasn’t featured in almost a month already and plenty believe the Bayern Munich legend is done. See tweets from Manchester United fans below.
Schweinsteiger won't play for United again this season but will be fit for the Euros. Sod that! If he's not fit for us he shouldn't go #MUFC

Think we’ve seen the last time Bastian plays for United
It was a beautiful dream, but Pep was correct I reckon

Basti unlikely to play 'again' this season. Must've missed it when he did. Lardy arsed, salary sponging, best-wishes sharing waste of space.

@ManUtd unlikely to play for United ever again**
