Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger has been pictured wearing a knee brace while watching partner Ana Ivanovic compete in the Miami Open in Florida.
Schweinsteiger partially tore ligaments in his knee while training with Germany last week and there are fears that the midfielder’s season could be over.
Germany lost 3-2 against England in Berlin in Schweinsteiger’s absence while the 31-year-old was in Florida to watch Ivanovic:
Schweinsteiger had only just returned to action following a lengthy absence and the latest setback will come as a blow to him, Louis van Gaal and the German national side.
Marouane Fellaini has featured more prominently in the middle of the park in recent weeks but his performances have attracted criticism from supporters.
Schweinsteiger had brought an element of class to midfield in a handful of cameo appearances from the substitute’s bench recently but, unfortunately, he must now focus on getting back to full fitness ahead of the next campaign.
