Germany boss Joachim Low: Bastian Schweinsteiger out of action for ‘two or three days’

by Tanveer Arayan

Germany boss Joachim Low has said Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger will be out of action for “two or three days” due to a slight injury.

Schweinsteiger suffered a thigh complaint in the warm-up to Germany’s 1-0 defeat against Republic of Ireland on Thursday and subsequently played no part in the game.

The injury has reportedly made him a doubt for Man United’s clash against Everton following the international break but Low insisted Schweinsteiger shouldn’t be sidelined for too long.

“Schweinsteiger probably won’t play on Sunday [vs Georgia],” Low said.

“The medical staff said he has to take a break for two or three days. He will stay with us and we will see what is possible. But it does not look like he can play.”

Schweinsteiger was poor in the 3-0 defeat against Arsenal last weekend but the same could be said of all of his teammates and the idea of having him out injured, especially with Michael Carrick as a doubt and Ander Herrera still not fully, isn’t ideal at all.

With tough games coming up against Everton, CSKA Moscow and Manchester City coming up, Louis van Gaal and United fans alike will be hoping Schweinsteiger’s injury is nothing more than a minor complaint.
