Bastian Schweinsteiger returns to Manchester United training

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is expecting to return to the first-team in March.

The German international made his last appearance in the FA Cup win over Sheffield United on January 9 and is still recovering from a knee injury.

Schweinsteiger has continued rehabilitation on his injury and was also pictured at Man United’s training complex this week.

He admits the recovery is going well and is now back at Carrington for training.



“I should be completely back on board in March,” he told Bild this week.

“A medial ligament tear takes time, but everything is healing well. I know my body, everything will be okay.

“In about five days, I’ll begin to start running again and five days after that I should be training with a ball again.”

I think we’ve missed Schweinsteiger’s presence more than we care to think and am convinced our best partnership is Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger. Without the German in midfield, we’ve seriously lacked a calming figure because Michael Carrick has been injured and then out of form when fit.

We’ve got crucial games in March including Liverpool in the Europa League, West Ham in the FA Cup and Manchester City in the Premier League, so having Schweinsteiger back for those games would be a huge boost.
