Germany manager Joachim Low delivers injury update on Man United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger
Joachim Low says Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger hasn’t suffered a serious injury.
The Red Devils midfielder didn’t feature in Germany’s 1-0 defeat by the Republic of Ireland at The Aviva on Thursday night.
Schweinsteiger has been a key part of Louis van Gaal’s side since his £6.7m move to Manchester United from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.
And Low, whose side are still top of their qualifying group, reassured concerned United supporters that Schweinsteiger isn’t a long-term injury concern.
“For Bastian it looks like he may not be able to make it in time for Sunday,” Low is quoted as saying following Germany’s 1-0 loss to Ireland. “Two to three days, that’s how long he needs to rest so it will be very, very tight.”
Schweinsteiger moved to United in a reported £6.7m deal from Bayern in the summer transfer window.
The 31-year-old endured a forgettable performance in a 3-0 loss to bitter rivals on Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
The World Cup winner has made eight Premier League appearances since his switch from the Bundesliga champions to Old Trafford.
