Bastian Schweinsteiger Hits Out At Criticism Of His Form For Man United

Manchester United are currently in a very tricky situation having failed to win in their last six games, and while manager Louis Van Gaal appears to be edging closer and closer to exit door at Old Trafford, a number of the players have been singled out for criticism as well.

Wayne Rooney, Memphis Depay, and Juan Mata have all come under the spotlight in recent weeks, but so too has veteran midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger who was signed for Bayern Munich in the summer.

As soon as he arrived it seemed that Schweinsteiger was facing criticism over his fitness, but he made a good start to life at Old Trafford, although that has not spared him from criticism as United's results have continued to get worse and worse.


Speaking to German publication 'Welt am Sonntag', Schweinsteiger hit back at those who have been suggesting that his performances thus far for the reds have been under par:

Honestly, I am not impressed by the criticism that has been brought up over me via the media. I am currently playing on a level that is comparable to that during the World Cup in 2014.

'Old man’s football’ - that is an expression that was used back then, too. After the World Cup final those voices went silent.

I will never be able to compete with Usain Bolt. It was a good year for me, but not a perfect year. My performances in Manchester were really okay.

While his performances have indeed been OK, some fans may have expected more from a player which such experience and with such an impressive tally of medals, but then again, the German was voted Manchester United's player of the month for November.

There are many problems with Manchester United's squad, and Bastian Schweinsteiger is certainly one of the smaller problems in that regard, but it just goes to show you that criticism of players does in fact reach it's intended target, and sometimes if they are not happy about it, they'll let everyone know.
