Bastian Schweinsteiger has called his relationship with Jose Mourinho 'unfortunate'
Bastian Schweinsteiger left Manchester United last month for MLS side Chicago Fire after an unsuccessful spell at Old Trafford.
The 32-year-old struggled to make his mark in the Premier League and was shut out of the Red Devils' first team by Jose Mourinho.
The former Germany international made just four appearances for United, spending most of his time this season with the Under-23s.

And Schweinsteiger has admitted it was a situation that was difficult for both himself and Mourinho, calling their relationship "unfortunate".
"He spoke to me, so it was nothing new for me, but it shows his character," he told MOTD magazine.
"Of course, it was an unfortunate situation for both of us."
