There's Even More Good News For Manchester United's Bastian Schweinsteiger

Good news for Bastian Schweinsteiger! Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will remain with the club as a selection option for their European excursions.

Not only did the German make his first start in over a year, but he also bagged his first goal for Manchester United at Old Trafford as they thrashed Championship outfit Wigan 4-0.

The 32-year-old was included in the starting XI for their FA Cup clash to the joy of the United faithfuls. And after his performances, the fans believe he's a suitable option going forward.

Despite not being included in Jose's Premier League squad, Schweinsteiger will be kept on the books for the remainder of the campaign in particular for the Europa League.

Speaking after the game, the United boss said;

"Yes, he's staying and he's going to the Europa League list. There are spaces from Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin (leaving) and we don't have many players and many options in midfield."

While adding that playing the full game was hard for him though an important step ahead of the second half of the season;

"Ninety minutes today was hard for him. From minute 65, 70 it was difficult. But it was important to have this impact on his body. He was a good professional when he was not playing and he is going to be the same, good professional. With so many competitions and minutes (for United), he's an option."

He's back!
