Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed that he has retired from international football, as reported by The Guardian.
The former Bayern Munich general amassed 120 caps for Germany over a prestigious international career and will be adjudged as one of the best players of his generation.
Schweinsteiger played an important part in Joachim Low’s men winning the World Cup in Brazil back in 2014, where the Europeans beat Argentina in the final.
The United star was part of the German squad that was eliminated at the semi-finals stage at Euro 2016 but was not an automatic starter for his side.
Schweinsteiger’s club future is also in doubt as the impending return of Paul Pogba to Old Trafford could well see the veteran surplus to requirements for Jose Mourinho’s men.
The German is being tipped with a move elsewhere this summer, with the likes of Michael Carrick, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera also in contention for a place in Mourinho’s midfield.
