Manuel Neuer says Bastian Schweinsteiger can help Manchester United
Last Updated: 25/10/16 2:27pm
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer believes Bastian Schweinsteiger is one of the world's best midfielders, and has urged Manchester United to consider him for selection.
The 32-year-old has not been picked by Jose Mourinho this season, but Neuer reckons the former Germany captain is just the player United need right now.
"I really hope that Bastian gets some consideration soon," Neuer said.
"We all know he's one of the best midfielders in the world. He belongs on the field for Manchester United and not training individually."
Neuer is not the only one calling for Schweinsteiger to be given a chance, with former Germany team-mate Lukas Podolski tweeting "Schweinsteiger please" during United's defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.
Schweinsteiger's last game was his final bow for Germany in a testimonial in September.
He last pulled on a United shirt in the Manchester derby in March, with injury bringing his first Premier League season to a premature conclusion.
