Manchester United made a mistake in signing Schweinsteiger

Manchester United legend Gordon McQueen says that the club failed to do their homework when signing Bastian Schweinsteiger and Jose Mourinho has been left to pick up the pieces.

Mourinho said on Saturday that he was surprised that there are no takers for the German World Cup winner and made it known that he will pick Academy players ahead of the experienced midfielder.

Schweinsteiger, who cost £6 million last summer, has two years left on his £140,000-a-week contract and hinted on social media last week that he was not pushing for the exit door.

And McQueen believes United are paying a hefty price for their lack of due diligence, with the Scot, who played over 200 games for the club in a seven-year spell, telling Goal: “It was obvious even before he signed for United that time has caught up with him and he doesn’t have the legs any more.

“I don’t think United signed a world-class player. If you look at his record over the previous two seasons it was not good.

“I know that he won a World Cup with Germany in 2014, but his club performances were largely poor and there wasn’t that many of them.
