Bastian Schweinsteiger is hoping that Mario Gotze makes a swift recovery from his groin injury
Bastian Schweinsteiger has taken to social media to send his best wishes to Mario Gotze after the Bayern Munich midfielder was ruled out of action for at least 10 weeks with a groin injury.

Manchester United midfielder Schweinsteiger used his personal Instagram account to send a message of support to his team-mate after reflecting on Germany’s qualification for Euro 2016.
Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “After a tough EURO Qualifiers we were able to set everything for 2016. In this tournament Mario Götze will play an important role! Get well soon. @dfb_team”
Manchester United will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday when they travel to Everton.
The Red Devils slumped to a 3-0 loss to Arsenal in their most recent outing to leave Louis van Gaal’s men third in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City before the international break.
