Bastian Schweinsteiger reacts to Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Man United

Bastian Schweinsteiger is happy to see Jose Mourinho at Manchester United...

Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed his delight at Manchester United’s decision to appoint Jose Mourinho as the club’s new manager.

The Portuguese coach signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils last week after days of speculation linking him with the job at Old Trafford.

His appointment came just days after United opted to sack Louis van Gaal in the wake of the club’s FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace.

Mourinho is already believed to be working hard on his summer transfer targets as he bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

And United midfielder Schweinsteiger is clearly looking forward to lining up for his new manager at Old Trafford next season.

Speaking at a Germany news conference on Thursday, the midfielder said: “I think we did a great job getting Jose Mourinho to Manchester, one of the best coaches – if not the best – in European football.

“But we will get to the topic of Manchester United later.

“We are all happy that we got a coach like that, but right now the players are thinking more about the Euros not about United.”

United ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table last season under Van Gaal as they missed out on a place in next season’s Champions League.
