Bastian Schweinsteiger’s brother, Tobi, has issued a message which seems to be aimed at José Mourinho, after he banished the World Cup winner to train with the U23s on Monday, as per the MEN.
Schweinsteiger is reportedly one of the players which Mourinho sets to axe in the summer, and has therefore been alienated from first team training, similar to what Van Gaal did with Valdés last season.
And, his brother, Tobi, is not happy with the situation.

Now, it is not confirmed whether the tweet was aimed at Mourinho/United, but considering the circumstances, it is more than likely the case.
Schweinsteiger had a fairly shaky season at Old Trafford under Van Gaal last year, failing to cement his place in the first team due to an ongoing knee injury.
According to the MEN, AC Milan and Inter Milan are two of the clubs interested in the German ace, but the player will have to take a pay cut if he were to switch to the Serie A giants.
Bild also reported on Monday that Schweinsteiger does not want to leave United, yet was made to train with the U23s as Mourinho is set on selling him this summer.
