Manchester United duo Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney train at Carrington ahead of visit of Newcastle United
Bastian Schweinsteiger and new skipper Wayne Rooney have been back on the training ground preparing for Newcastle United’s visit to Old Trafford this Saturday lunchtime.
The United squad returned to training today following Tuesday night’s Champions League qualifying first-leg victory over Club Brugge, and will be hoping to carry their performance back into Premier League action on the weekend.
World Cup winner Schweinsteiger will be looking to impress Louis van Gaal at the Aon Training Complex in order to gain his first start since moving to England from Bayern Munich this summer.
Rooney wrote on the photo-sharing app: “In training with @waynerooney #mufc”
Despite 1-0 wins over Spurs and Aston Villa, Rooney and co. have come under criticism for their dull performances in both Premier League games this season.
The England captain has struggled for form since returning to the apex of United’s attack this season, but has today told reporters that the goals will come as the season continues.
