Relegating a player of Bastian Schweinsteiger’s stature to the youth squad is no way to treat a legend.
Jose Mourinho did so anyway, and it seems he has drawn resentment from those within Schweinsteiger’s circle. Namely, his brother.

Tobi formerly played in the German lower leagues. It’s unclear what exactly he is referring to, but with the recent news of his brother’s demotion, you can only assume.
Mourinho is the culprit of parting ways with experienced players such as Schweinsteiger. Juan Mata, who is at United now, was a victim of this during Mourinho’s stint in Chelsea.
But Schweinsteiger is one of the few football legends still playing. He hasn’t dominated in Old Trafford like he did for so long with Bayern Munich, but he has been solid.
Merely tossing him with the U23s is no way to treat the German legend. His brother seems to agree.
