Louis van Gaal hits at Jose Mourinho straight for his special treatment to veteran midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. Jose Mourinho signed Bastian in 2015 during two- year tenure at old Traffold.
Mourinho made former Bayern Munich star train with the reserve team instead of the main team. Bastian left Manchester United in March 2017 for the MLS Side Chicago Fire. He played 35 matches for Manchester United and worked out well enough for the team.
Van Gaal agreed that Bastian is aged 33 and is no longer in peak of his performance but he still criticizes the decision taken by manager Jose Mourinho. Van Gaal in an interview with Sport Bild said Bastian was older than ago but not so old even to face this decision. He felt that the body of Bastian was still well enough and agreed to the fact that he failed to meet the high demands of Premier League.
Jose Mourinho accused Bayern of selling dead player whose existence does not matter much to the team but in reality they just send unfit player. Mourinho says he is unhappy with his decision of buying Bastian and he says it is a regretting decision he took. He wished to have bought a player whose body isn’t completely exhausted when compared to the high demands of Premier League.
But Louis Van Gaal says the way Mourinho is treating my old player is not acceptable. He claims his player was strong enough like Luis Enrique, Mark Van Bommel or Philipp Lahm. Louis Van Gaal said that Bastian is a player who always has presence of his mind and body during the match always which helps him not to get distracted.
Van Gaal though has not yet returned to management he had taken departure from Manchester United in 2016. People are yet waiting for his return.
