Bastian Schweinsteiger says he is convinced that Jose Mourinho is the right man to bring success back to Manchester United after the midfielder’s transfer to Chicago Fire was confirmed on Tuesday.

The veteran midfielder has opted to join the MLS side after finding his first-team opportunities at Old Trafford to be severely restricted this season following Mourinho’s arrival at the club last summer.

Indeed, Schweinsteiger did not even make a single appearance for Manchester United in the Premier League this season as he struggled to force his way into the first team.

Schweinsteiger’s move was confirmed by Manchester United on Tuesday morning, and the 32-year-old midfielder used his personal Instagram account to send a classy message to Red Devils fans after the move was confirmed.

Speaking in the video posted on Instagram, Schweinsteiger said: “I believe and I’m sure that Jose Mourinho and his team will bring back the trophies to Manchester United soon.

“I wish you all the best, thank you very much and goodbye.”
