Bayern Munich star nails Schweinsteiger with brutal challenge

Bastian Schweinsteiger missed almost three months of action for Bayern Munich before making his long-awaited return in early February, but the Germany international may be forced back into the treatment room after a training ground challenge from Mario Mandzukic.

Bayern have hardly struggled in the absence of Schweinsteiger, but his return was undoubtedly a welcome one. However, the midfield maestro has not been afforded any special treatment in training sessions if this evidence is anything to go by.

The Champions League winners were undergoing a relatively restrained passing drill on their practice grounds on Thursday, only for Mandzukic to take things up a notch on two.

With the ball being flicked into the path of Schweinsteiger, the Croatian flew into a challenge and floored his teammate with a two-footed lunge. The rest of the players looked shocked as Schweni crumpled to the turf, with Madzukic quick to express his apologies.

Take a look in the video above.
