Jose Mourinho says it will be "very difficult" for ex-Germany international Bastian Schweinsteiger to play for Manchester United and did not shy away from hitting out at Bayern Munich.
Schweinsteiger said earlier this week that the Red Devils will be his last club in Europe and would be ready if the club needed him. The player has been left out of the first-team picture and made to train with the reserves at Carrington.

Bayern president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said he could "hardly believe" Mourinho's treatment of Schweinsteiger and believes it will turn players off joining the club in future, saying situations like this has never happened at Bayern Munich.
Responding to those comments in his presser on Friday, Mourinho would say:
"I thought after I read some quotes from people at Bayern Munich that they would run to Manchester to bring Schweinsteiger back, but no, that did not happen.
"I am quite surprised that Mr. Rummennigge is not here now to take him back."
Mourinho’s comments would appear to be correct as the club made no efforts in keeping their man at the club last season and are not willing to offer the player a chance to return to the club.
Mourinho was also asked if Schweinsteiger had any chance of playing for United again.
"I think it's very difficult to happen," Mourinho said.
"I'm not saying it’s impossible, I’m saying it’s very difficult because we have made a decision made about Pogba, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Fellaini and Carrick, we have five players for two positions, so it's very difficult”
