Bastian Schweinsteiger analyzed the stage in which he was coach of José Mourinho at Manchester United. He did not tell too much for the Portuguese coach and now he acknowledges that he had something to do with his past with Pep Guardiola. Schweinsteiger assures that his history with the Spanish manager was a problem for Mourinho. The midfielder and Guardiola spent two years together at Bayern Munich, with great success.
“I didn’t play a lot (with Mourinho) unfortunately, but I still respect him. He is a great coach who has won many trophies. It was a strange and difficult situation, he never really explained why. Maybe it was because I played with Pep Guardiola and had played Pep Guardiola’s football, which he doesn’t like … “the German told BBC Radio 5Live.
“Maybe it was because I played with Pep Guardiola and had played Pep’s football, which he doesn’t like …”
“Still, I liked how Mourinho was actually doing it. Of course, the style of play is different, I think that’s why Zlatan left. It wasn’t so much football, sometimes it was more direct. But he was successful with his teams. It was just a strange feeling “, he sentenced.
Schweinsteiger left United in 2017, six months after Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford. And although he has nothing against him, he does not have good memories of that stage. He was removed from the first team and sent to train with the subsidiary, something that caused his goodbye to Old Trafford. Months later, Mourinho acknowledged his mistake. “Now I would be part of the team. I regret it and I have no problem admitting it.”
The German went to MLS, to the Chicago Fire. Finally, in October 2019, he said his final goodbye to football. His legacy both at Bayern and with the German national team will go down in history forever.
