Schweinsteiger set for return, says Guardiola

The Germany international has not featured in an official game since the World Cup, but is expected to resume squad training shortly

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is confident that Bastian Schweinsteiger will soon be available for selection again after a spell on the sidelines due to injury.

The 30-year-old has not made a competitive appearance since the World Cup because of a knee problem picked up during the pre-season tour of America.

However, Guardiola believes the Germany international will soon be able to resume squad training and take the next step in his recovery.

“The end of the recovery process is getting nearer. I think he will soon be able to train with the team again,” Guardiola said at a press conference.

“It depends on the physio and the doctor when exactly he can resume squad training. He will be able to make his comeback when he no longer feels pain.”

The midfielder prematurely ended an individual training session on Tuesday for unknown reasons, but he’s optimistic that he will soon be back in action.

“My situation is improving,” Schweinsteiger told TZ. “I’m trying to increase the workload and intensity.”
