The return of Bastian Schweinsteiger

bastian-schweinsteiger-manchester-unitedHaving been frozen out by Mourinho till some weeks ago where he was allowed to train again with the first team players, Bastian Schweinsteiger finally made his first appearance of the season in the EFL Cup last night, but although it was only for about 4 minutes or so, he was clearly very happy to join his team-mates again, and the home fans gave him an ovation as well to express their delight in seeing him play again. Irony of his appearance thou is that on his return, Mourinho was serving the 1-match ban picked up during the game against the same West Ham United side which drew 1-1 on Sunday, although this time the Red Devils overturned the situation by netting four goals, 2 from Zlatan and 2 from Martial, to proceed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on a 4-1 scoreline, after Fletcher had cancelled out Zlatan’s 2nd minute goal, but the Red Devils steamrolled the second half to score 3 more. They will meet Hull City in a 2-leg tie to decide which team will eventually join Liverpool or Southampton for the final.
