Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann believes Bastian Schweinsteiger must leave Bayern Munich after losing his place in the side, reports 

The German international was left on the substitute’s bench Bayern Munich’s 6-1 thrashing of Porto on Tuesday, and the midfielder was not missed as his team-mates but the Portuguese giants to the sword, overturning a two-goal deficit from the first leg.

Schweinsteiger’s biggest problem has been the form of Xabi Alonso, who is much preferred by fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola. The Spanish midfielder has impressed since his summer move to the Allianz from Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Hamann thinks the form of Alonso may see Schweinsteiger leave the German giants this summer in search of first-team football once again.

“The game against Porto was quite meaningful for two players in particular,”Hamann told Kicker.

“Schweinsteiger has apparently lost the battle for a place in midfield to Xabi Alonso. I do not think he will still be playing for Bayern next year,” he added.

This season is somewhat of a change for Schweinsteiger, who has been a key figure in the Bayern Munich squad since his breakthrough in 2004.

It is unseen where the 30-year-old may go if he does leave the Champions League semi-finalists, with no team seemingly having linked themselves with a move.

In-form Muller

Hamann also believes that French winger Franck Ribery will find it hard to get back into the squad following his injury, and because of Thomas Muller’s excellent form.

“It will also be quite tricky for Ribery,' he added. 'If you have to make a choice between Ribery and Muller once Robben returns, I would always pick Muller,” Hamann added.
