The midfielder has been a critical part of the Bayern Munich team which won the last two Bundesliga titles and the sporting director is constantly impressed by him
Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has labelled Bastian Schweinsteiger a phenomenon.
The midfielder has been a key part of the Bayern team which won the Bundesliga in each of the last two years and has won seven league titles overall in the 12 years he has been in the Bavarian giants’ first-team. The 30-year-old has also been a pivotal part of a side which has won two Champions League titles, while he won the World Cup with Germany in the summer.
And Sammer believes he is one of the best in the world and admits he is constantly impressed by the Bayern star who missed the first 11 weeks of the current campaign due to injury.
“For me, Bastian is a phenomenon,” he told the club’s official website. “He worked hard for it to be back on the court, which has really impressed me.
“He is robust, powerful and has very impressive willpower.”
The former Inter and Borussia Dortmund player was also asked for his opinion on the constant criticism Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben face because of their alleged selfishness.
“That is absolute nonsense when you see how much of a team player both of them are. They are both world-class players who have preserved their individuality and genius, yet they have integrated them into the team.”
