Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has expressed his disbelief at the “humiliation” of former midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United after the hugely decorated player was banished to the reserves by José Mourinho.

"Players should think twice"

“When I read that I couldn’t believe it,” Rummenigge said. “"Players should think twice before signing for clubs who treat them like this when they're no longer wanted.”

Ancelotti: "No place" for Schweinsteiger

Schweinsteiger signed for United last summer after 17 years at the Allianz Arena and his contract at Old Trafford expires next year. However, a mooted return to Bayern looks increasingly unlikely after incoming coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that the player “has no place in our planning.”

Germany retirement

Neither does the World Cup winner have a place in Mourinho’s squad for the 2016-17 season. It has been a difficult week for Schweinsteiger, who announced his retirement from international football after earning 120 caps for Germany. In his final appearance for his national side at the European Championship in France, Schweinsteiger conceded the penalty that gave the hosts the lead as Germany were knocked out in the semifinals.
