Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has denounced Manchester United for treating Bastian Schweinsteiger “like a leper” as the former Germany captain’s future at the club remains in doubt.
The 32-year-old Schweinsteiger had been training either by himself or with the United reserves since Jose Mourinho took the reins at Old Trafford this summer.
Though the former Bayern midfielder was recalled to first-team training sessions this week, Hoeness expressed his displeasure with the Portuguese manager’s treatment of his countryman at the Premier League club.
“It is unbelievable what has happened to Schweinsteiger at Manchester United,” Hoeness told AZ.
“To not allow a man like Schweinsteiger to train with the rest of the team, to leave him off the team photo and to treat him like a leper and push him aside like that does not speak well of a club, although it says a lot about the situation at this club.
“Schweinsteiger is an amazing human being and was an amazing player for Bayern Munich. It’s a real shame that United are doing this to him.”
