Jose Mourinho urged to play Bastian Schweinsteiger by supporters

Published 1 Comments

It might be slightly premature to say Manchester United are in a crisis but three losses in eight days have certainly dampened the early season spirits of many of the club's supporters.

A 3-1 defeat to Watford on Sunday was arguably the worst of all three and another disappointing performance has just increased the pressure on Mourinho to turn things around.

Going against his notoriously ruthless nature, the Portuguese boss has stayed loyal to many of the big names who have let him down against Manchester City and Feyenoord but surely the latest defeat has given Mourinho no choice but to explore his other options.

One player who a certain section of supporters would like to see back in action is Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The German has been extradited from the first team since Mourinho arrived at the club and the Red Devils were actively trying to find him a new side before the transfer window closed at the start of September.

Yet, Schweinsteiger is still on United's books and was included in the final Premier League squad submission nearly three weeks ago.

Despite the manager's obvious disliking for the 32-year-old, it would appear the fans hold a different opinion and believe his leadership qualities could help the team recover from a tough week.

Here are some of the best tweets:

Once you fall into Mourinho's bad books there is no easy way back and therefore it would represent one of the biggest U-turns in his managerial career should Schweinsteiger be given a chance to save his career at Old Trafford.

Despite Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba's recent troubles, it would still take something remarkable for Schweinsteiger to replace either of them.

Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin would all be considered ahead of the German in Mourinho's pecking order. So, unless the squad is suddenly hit by a bizarre injury crisis, United fans may just have to accept Schweinsteiger has made his last appearance in a red shirt.
