Jose Mourinho is one of the most highly rated managers in the world of football as well as successful one as the Portuguese coach after having lifted the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, which is something that not many managers have been able to do.

The arrival of Mourinho to Old Trafford has sparked life among fans of Manchester United as many supporters of the club are starting to believe and hope that the Portuguese coach is able to bring back the European title that the Premier League club has not been able to do since the season of 2007-08.

Even though Jose Mourinho is a recognized and influential coach who has lifted some of the most important pieces of silverware in the sport, the arrival of the 2 time UEFA Champions League winner is also a controversial figure who has made questionable decisions in his career and even though it hasn’t even been 3 months since Mourinho was officially appointed as the new coach of Manchester United, there is already a huge issue that has popped out and it’s involving the future of Bastian Schweinsteiger as it seems like he will not play any significant role in the plans of the Portuguese coach.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is a 31 year old midfielder who even at his fairly elevated age, still continues to be a predominant figure who is capable to perform at the highest of level and he has proved his worth with his former club Bayern Munich and with the German national side.

At the time of writing this article, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Herikh Mkhitaryan have been signed by Manchester United and a few more players are expected to be signed but others that aren’t in the plans of Jose Mourinho might be leaving and one of them is Bastian Schweinsteiger.

It’s believed that the German midfielder has already been told to leave the club and find a new one but only time will tell on whether or not he does decide to find a new home or if Mourinho gives the experienced player a chance to prove his worth.
