London, August 04 : Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has questioned the fitness of Manchester United’s new midfielder and his former player Bastian Schweinsteiger, saying that the latter has not been fully fit over the past three seasons.
Guardiola said he is completely convinced that the German would perform well at United if he could shake off his injury problems, the Guardian reported.
Reacting to Guardiola’s statement, Schweinsteiger, a World Cup winner, said that although it is a challenge for him, he has the experience of playing big matches.
Schweinsteiger, who had spent 17 years at Bayern before moving to United, has been plagued by ankle and knee injuries throughout his career. (ANI)
