Bastian set for swansong
Ahead of his final Germany appearance, Bastian Schweinsteiger said Tuesday he will not give up on his dream of playing again for Manchester United -- despite his exile by Jose Mourinho.
Germany's friendly against Finland in Moenchengladbach on Wednesday doubles as Schweinsteiger's farewell on his 121st - and final - international appearance when he will captain die Mannschaft for the last time.
The 32-year-old, who left Bayern Munich for Manchester in 2015, has a United contract running until 2018, but new coach Mourinho banished him to the Under-23 team early this month, insisting the soon-to-be ex-Germany captain is not in his plans.
Schweinsteiger says he will keep waiting for his chance at Old Trafford and insisted that he has 'no problem' with Mourinho.
"My absolute dream would be to play for Manchester United and help them reach their goals," said Schweinsteiger at a German FA (DFB) press conference in Duesseldorf.
