Former Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger believe the current United team is no match with Liverpool, Chelsea and their neighbour Manchester City. According to the German international, the club is currently not at the same level as those teams.
Bastian Schweinsteiger Blast United after Liverpool Thrashing
Schweinsteiger stated this in an interview where he slammed his former side for conceding five goals against bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. He said: “It is still not 100 per cent clear to me if Manchester United will be successful or not. They have great names like Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo, and I think that Marcus Rashford will help them a lot in the future because he has been injured. It has not been easy for them.
Adding to this, he said: “But if you compare their football to other teams like Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool or even like Bayern Munich it is not on the same level at the moment. United can always hurt you in one game. That is clear to me, especially at Old Trafford.” “If you look at Manchester City or Chelsea and the impact that Thomas Tuchel had on them, it was unbelievable.
Since arriving at the club, Bastian Schweinsteiger praised Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel for his impact on the Chelsea team. He further stated that United could use the experience of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, who are the two players in the team with the most number champions League trophies, to burst their team, but what he is not sure of is how involved they are in the tactics of the team.
