Bastian Schweinsteiger returns to Germany training and allays injury fears

by Sam Peoples

Bastian Schweinsteiger has given Manchester United fans an injury boost by taking part in a training session with Germany on Saturday.

The veteran midfielder missed Germany’s clash against Ireland a few days ago after pulling up in training with an adductor muscle injury and there were major concerns for him.

After a troubled start to the season which saw Schweinsteiger take a long time to gain his full match fitness, he has become an important player for Louis van Gaal, so it’s great to see him back in training so soon after the concerns over his adductor injury.

Germany have a game against Georgia on Sunday evening and although it remains to be seen whether Schweinsteiger will feature in that match. Van Gaal would probably prefer he didn’t play and returned to Manchester without having risked further injury.

Michael Carrick also returned to Manchester this week after being sent back from England duty and Ander Herrera‘s fitness isn’t fully known, so Schweinsteiger’s fitness is of paramount importance to United right now.
