Schweinsteiger announces retirement

Former Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger, has announced his retirement from football at the age of 35.

The player, who previously made 121 international appearances for Germany, made the decision to hang up his boots after his current team Chicago Fire team failed to make the MLS play-offs.

And following the announcement, German national head coach Joachim Loew said that Schweinsteiger is more than welcome to join his coaching staff.

“We will always have a place for him. I don’t know what his plans are. Any player who has ever played in the national team, and has the goal of being a coach, is always welcome here to get a taste of what it’s like.

“Everyone has a picture of him in their heads: blood-stained in the Maracana (in the 2014 World Cup final), he got up again and again and gave everything.

“He is one of the greatest players in German history. You could always feel his will to win. He was a great player and a great personality,” said Loew.
