Manchester United fans ‘crying’ over Bastian Schweinsteiger’s shock return

Bastian Schweinsteiger trains with Manchester United first team for first time this season

The temperature is dropping, but Bastian Schweinsteiger is back in from the cold at Manchester United.

The German midfielder, 32, has trained with the United first team for the first time since being exiled by Jose Mourinho as soon as he arrived in the summer.

Schweinsteiger, who made 31 appearances last season after signing from Bayern Munich for £14.4m, was given a Premier League squad number but was then made to train with the U21s and was not included in the Europa League squad.

He has not been included in a single matchday squad this term but, after United went a fourth Premier League game without a win by drawing 0-0 at home to Burnley on Saturday, Schweinsteiger has been re-introduced to the fold.

Schweinsteiger warmed up with his team-mates and took part in ball-work with fellow midfielders Marouane Fellaini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is also yet to break into Mourinho's first team since a summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

United have also been buoyed by the return of Phil Jones to first-team training on Monday after he suffered a string of injuries in recent weeks.

Defenders Antonio Valencia and Eric Bailly are out until December, while defender Chris Smalling and striker Anthony Martial also have knocks.

United travel to face Fenerbahce in Europa League Group A on Thursday before taking on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.
