While Bastian Schweinsteiger looks set for an exit from Manchester United, the fans’ emotions were triggered by his brother’s tweet directed at the high handed treatment meted out by manager Jose Mourinho.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder has reportedly been banished to the reserve team dressing room, as Mourinho made it clear that he did not feature in his future plans for Manchester United. Fans were divided in their reactions, with some dejected by the banishment while others pointed out that the midfielder was a shadow of his former self.

It all started with this tweet from the former German captain’s brother Tobi Schweinsteiger.

Many fans were quick to take up Schweinsteiger’s cause, labeling Mourinho’s treatment of him as crass and disrespectful.

However, there was a large section of fans who thought that the former Bayern Munich midfielder was past his prime, and Mourinho was right in his treatment of Schweinsteiger.

The debate also led to a bizarre and hilarious conversation between a Schweinsteiger fan, who also seems to admire Michael Carrick, and a gentleman from Coventry who goes by the name of ‘the baron’.
