Bastian Schweinsteiger retires from football

Bastian Schweinsteiger announced retirement from football. The German declared to end his professional playing adventure days after the end of the MLS season, where Chicago Fire finished 17th. Schweinsteiger wasn’t happy with his performance and wanted to give his fans more. Schweinsteiger came from the aroma of Bayern’s set up and gave his service to the five-time European champions team from 2002 to 2015, where he won eight league titles, seven German Cup titles, one Champions League and various other honors.

The 35-year-old, who retired from his national duty in 2016, played a distinguished role in Germany’s success as he helped the European powerhouse to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Before joining MLS back in 2017, Schweinsteiger played for Manchester United, where once Jose Mourinho forced him to train with the under23 squad. 

Schweinsteiger respected the club even after not seeing a great level of respect. Mourinho later said that it was a mistake to not give the German a prominent level of admiration. Schweinsteiger was a hero on the pitch and is the hero off the pitch too.
