Hoeness have criticised the treatment of his countryman by Manchester United this season. 

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has accused Manchester United of treating Bastian Schweinsteiger “like a leper”.

“It is unbelievable what has happened to Schweinsteiger at Manchester United,” Hoeness told AZ.

“To not allow a man like Schweinsteiger to train with the rest of the team, to leave him off the team photo and to treat him like a leper and push him aside like that does not speak well of a club, although it says a lot about the situation at this club.

“Schweinsteiger is an amazing human being and was an amazing player for Bayern Munich. It’s a real shame that United are doing this to him.”

Bastian Schweinsteiger have not played for Manchester United this season because the Portuguese boss deemed him surplus to requirement but Schweinsteiger did train this week with the first team.
