Has Bastian Schweinsteiger given his girlfriend the boot?

Published Add your comment

There were rumours that Bastian Schweinsteiger had broken up with his girlfriend, Sarah Brandner, and now we have confirmation. Of sorts.

Because the Bayern Munich and Germany star used his football boots to send the clearest indication you can possibly make (using footwear) that it is indeed, sadly, all over with Ms Brandner.

As seen in the tweet below, Schweinsteiger ruthlessly blacked out Sarah's name on his football boots.

The tweet

The German World Cup winner was romantically linked with tennis star Ana Ivanovic after Schweinsteiger was reportedly in Australia to watch her play.

And now this, Bastian reduced to scratching out his ex's name on his cleats. Can Adidas not hook a player up with a new pair?

Because being embroidered onto a football boot by someone you love is the ultimate expression of companionship in the professional world of football, and Sarah may be truly heartbroken to discover this.

I just hope she doesn't find out via this awkwardly written article.
