Bastian Schweinsteiger back in Man United first team training

To the shock of just about everyone, Bastian Schweinsteiger was brought in from the cold yesterday, and invited back to Manchester United’s first team training.

The German World Cup winner had been completely frozen out of the picture by Jose Mourinho til now, having been banished from first team training on the eve of the new season.

Mourinho evidently deemed Schweinsteiger surplus to requirements, and told him he needed to find a new club, because he wasn’t going to be playing for United any more.

But Schweini dug his heels in and insisted that he was going nowhere, and was apparently prepared to train with the reserves for the remainder of his contract.

But patience is a virtue, and Schweini’s been rewarded for his by finally being brought back into the fold.

And his joy at his surprise return was evident from the training pictures yesterday.

Wrapped up in winter wear, Schweinsteiger looked delighted to be back with his teammates, but reserved a special mention for the club captain Wayne Rooney.

Amid all the criticism and speculation surrounding Rooney, it’s clear the skipper remains immensely popular within the dressing room, whatever about elsewhere.
