Bastian Schweinsteiger suffers adductor muscle injury on Germany duty

by Sam Peoples

Bastian Schweinsteiger has suffered an adductor muscle injury and will miss Germany’s game against Ireland tonight, the German Football Association has confirmed.

Schweinsteiger had to work hard in the early stages of this season to regain his full match fitness and Manchester United fans will be concerned about this latest setback.

He has become an important player for Man United since recovering his match fitness and the last thing we need right now is for him to be sidelined with an injury, especially with Michael Carrick also pulling out of the England squad with a problem and Ander Herrera short of match fitness too.

Translation: Schweinsteiger is out due to a problem with his left adductor muscle (suffered in the final training session).

At this moment in time there is no confirmation as to the severity of the problem and it remains to be seen whether Schweinsteiger will stay with Germany or fly back to Manchester. That will all depend on how major the adductor muscle injury is.

United started off the season very well in terms of managing their injuries but they are worryingly starting to come one after another at the moment, which could be a problem with a squad that doesn’t have much depth.
