Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack has seemingly slammed Manchester United and Jose Mourinho for their treatment of German international Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Schweinsteiger has been consigned to the Manchester United reserves this season. He is clearly not in the plans of Jose Mourinho since his arrival in the summer and has been told by the club that he has no future at Old Trafford.

Ballack, a former team-mate of the German legend at international level, and club level with Bayern Munich, is clearly not pleased with the way Manchester United have treated his pal.

He shared these two tweets on the player on his official Twitter account:

 

 

Ballack, who Jose Mourinho once signed for Chelsea, is clearly not pleased with the fact United decided to cull the German legend from their official team photo this season.

Despite not being in Mourinho’s plans Schweinsteiger has remained positive about his role at the club – often posting messages of good fortune for the Manchester United first-team on his social media.

He is expected to leave Manchester and Europe in January as he looks to extend his career at the age of 32.
