“He’s not the player I had at Bayern.” LVG lets rip on Schweinsteiger

Schweinsteiger-1Louis Van Gaal has explained the reasons behind his decision to replace Bastian Schweinsteiger on Tuesday night, as United chased an equaliser against Wolfsburg.

The United manager said the German had not delivered the kind of performance he’s capable of producing, leading to him being replaced by Michael Carrick halfway through the second half.

“I have changed him and I don’t change players for nothing, then I think that I can do it with other players better,” he said.

“But we are all human beings and also Bastian Schweinsteiger is a human being and he wants to play at the highest level and certainly in Germany to show his qualities, but I cannot say that he was the Schweinsteiger from my period in Munich today.”
