Schweinsteiger backs Mourinho for Bayern job

Former German international Bastian Schweinsteiger believes that Jose Mourinho has what it takes to manage Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Mourinho is now a favourite to take over the German club following the sacking of Niko Kovac on Sunday and Schweinsteiger claims that his former manager at Old Trafford would fit in well at the Allianz Arena.

The Bayern legend told German tabloid newspaper, Bild, “I can imagine Mourinho in Germany. I remember he was always asking me about Bayern and the Bundesliga. During our away games, there was always Bundesliga on TV.

“He really knew every single player, even from the smaller teams. He was also learning German.

“He has not worked in the Bundesliga, so I can well imagine that he would be tempted by a commitment in Germany.”

Kovac, who joined the club in July last year, was fired following a string of poor league results which left the Bavarian side in fourth place in the Bundesliga.
