Bastian Schweinsteiger voted for ex-Bayern Munich team-mates in Ballon d’Or

by Sam Peoples

It might come as absolutely no surprise to anybody who Bastian Schweinsteiger voted for in his 2015/16 Ballon d’Or nominations.

Two of his ex-Bayern Munich team-mates Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller get the nod from Schweinsteiger with Neymar getting his third vote ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

1. Manuel Neuer
2. Thomas Muller
3. Neymar

Neuer was named in the FIFPro World XI ahead of second placed David de Gea but hopefully when the award comes around next year, De Gea is still a United player and gets the nod for the No.1 spot. Wishful thinking I know, he’ll be playing for Real Madrid.

Schweinsteiger would love to have some of his ex-Bayern Munich team-mates join him in Manchester but he’ll have to do with Marouane Fellaini and Louis van Gaal in the mean time.
